of Skatedork #2
World #10 (I think). Passionate and thoughtful publication about
skateboarding. Good design on newsprint, interesting article by
an academic on how skateboarders use public space "Skaters produce
an overtly political space, a pleasure ground carved out of the
city as a continuous reaffirmation of the notion that beneath the
pavement, lies the beach". Also stuff on the history of skateboarding,
and some gripes on having no place to skate. Good read.
#35. Skatedork: is a great zine about skateboarding. Well actually
it's a zine about having fun skateboarding, which makes it a little
different from most other publications covering skating. It has
columns and a lot of writing which is also a bit different and,
I think, much needed. There's also some photos but the newsprint
isn't the best, so if all you want to do is look at pictures, stick
to TW. This zine is for a fresh perspective.
