The Rise of Skateboarding: Photographs 1975 - 1980

Now in a more compact format, Back in the Day is a timeless and nostalgic collection of photographs documenting the skateboarding scene in the 1970s.

William Sharp began taking surfing photographs in southern California in the early seventies and was quickly drawn into the nascent skateboard scene, shooting friends emulating surfing moves on pavement. By 1975 he was brought in as a staff photographer for the magazine Skateboard World. During the next five years he documented the meteoric rise of the movement, capturing thousands of photographs along the way. Back in the Day features hundreds of Sharp’s astounding photos from this era.

This is a must have for fans and collectors of the original large format released in 2017.
