Synopsis: STOKED: THE EVOLUTION OF ACTION SPORTS is a visual history of the world’s most exciting sports. Through daring and dramatic images, STOKED celebrates the daring and fearlessness, the beauty and glory, the heights and depths, and the speed and agility of athletes who defy the laws of nature and the limits of sanity.
Beyond the mountains, vert ramps and dirt, these sports integrate music, fashion, art and entertainment into a way of life. The heroes and icons of action sports saturate popular culture and media. Athletes like Tony Hawk, brands like Quiksilver, Billabong and Burton, video games such as Kelly Slater’s Pro Surfer, and events like the ESPN X Games and the 2006 Winter Olympics, where snowboarder Shaun White was the breakout star, are blurring the line between sports and culture.
STOKED’s bold, modern, innovative design makes it an art object unto itself. The book pushes its own physical limits, mirroring the very pursuits it portrays. It is fully interactive, with special materials and papers, pop-ups, and stickers, among other special effects, and is sure to become a collector’s item.
STOKED is more than jaw-dropping images. It features an introduction by Pulitzer-prize winning journalist H.G. "Buzz" Bissinger, author of Friday Night Lights, the nonfiction classic about high school football in Texas. STOKED also includes vivid descriptions from the athletes who defined their sports as well as contributions from notable personalities, authors, photographers and musicians who have tapped into the action sports lifestyle.
STOKED: THE EVOLUTION OF ACTION SPORTS is not for posers. Its authenticity and attitude appeal to insiders as well as readers who are new to these sports. STOKED is the definitive volume on the subject.
