“A work of art” – Chas Smith, Beach Grit

Looking Sideways Vol 1., the first book by me and Owen Tozer, is now into its second print run and is available to order with free shipping globally!⁣

Acclaimed by Carve, Huck, Wavelength, Metro, the Telegraph, Sidetracked Magazine and Whitelines, Looking Sideways Vol. 1 is the tale of Californian action sports culture. It features the wisdom and insight of the people who helped create it and, in doing so, influenced the world. 

Authors Matt Barr and Owen Tozer journeyed from Ventura to San Diego on a mission to understand how Californian board sports culture has shaped the world, and how this culture continues to inform the global perspective of California today. ⁣

That trip saw us meet and interview the people who have defined and shaped modern surfing, skating and snowboarding: from traditionally venerated alphas like surfer Herbie Fletcher and skater Jamie Thomas, to trailblazers such as LGBT surf icon Cori Schumacher and glass-ceiling smashing skateboarder Cara-Beth Burnside. ⁣

Beautifully brought to life throughout by Tozer’s unique photography, Looking Sideways Vol. 1 is a visually sumptuous homage to an influential culture in flux, and a lovingly-compiled tribute to the state that continues to define the global board-riding conversation. ⁣
