From old school to hard core, Dysfunctional is the first international overview of contemporary skateboard culture. Unlike conventional skate media it is not about tricks and competitions, but rather focuses on ideas and attitudes - the experiences and details that make skating the vibrant and lasting youth subculture that it is.
From cover to cover, Dysfunctional is highly visual, a brilliant collection of graphic clues that recreate the patina of skate style. Skaters and ‘skate betties’ are portrayed hanging out, chilling out and hassled by security. There are the inevitable injuries, scruffy clothing, popular outlets, t-shirt graphics, cutting edge advertising, photography, painting, magazines, video sequences, and the toughest locations from Los Angeles to London.
With essays by antiheroes Garry Davis and Craig Steycyk.
