By: Peter Camann
From the Book:
Like every human endeavor, it starts with one or more individuals who dare do something extreme, something they feel is worth personal sacrifice even if it means being the object of derision, even hostility. This is the way skateboarding began in the heart of Colorado's Rocky Mountains back in 1975-1976.
"ARA's Untold Story: Skateboard Racing in the Rockies: Colorado 1975-1978" is a definitive and unique history of regional skateboarding that could well be utilized as a template for similar studies in other regions of the country.
