Why We Roll

For many people skateboarding is just another form of vandalism and a rather risky hobby. For those, however, who are open-minded begins a journey down the depths of the rabbit hole. When you speak with skaters you recognize that it’s not just a sport, for them it’s an own, very special lifestyle.

This book wants to cast light on the passion of skateboarding. It covers briefly the history of this subculture and portrays some skateboarders explaining their passion for the board. The interviews show that even identical questions lead to rather different answers as skateboarding has never had any standards or norms: it is eclectic, libertarian and rebellious!
