“A work of art” – Chas Smith, Beach Grit
Looking Sideways Vol. 1: Californian Action Sports Culture, the first book by Matt Barr 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 featuring interviews with the people who helped create it and influenced the world.
The authors Matt and Owen journeyed from Ventura to San Diego with a mission: To understand how Californian board sports culture has shaped the world, and how it continues to inform the global view of California and action sports today.
The trip allowed them to meet and interview the people who have defined and shaped modern surfing, skating and snowboarding. From venerated alpha males like surfer Herbie Fletcher and skater Jamie Thomas, to modern 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 and lovingly-compiled tribute to board sports culture and California’s ongoing influence around the world.
