Description (Brief)
Tracker - Forty Years of Skateboarding History is a hard cover, 388 page book with a black cover and a color photo of Tony Hawk. This is number 204 of the first 1000 books printed. According to the press release for the book, "The origin of Tracker Trucks dates back to 1974, when Tracker founders Larry Balma, Dave Dominy and Gary Dodds made the first prototype trucks. As Larry tells the story of Tracker's formation at San Diego spots like La Costa, the Escondido reservoir and the Kona Bowl, and about how the brand's many innovative trucks and related products came to be, forty-four of Tracker's top riders chime in with colorful recollections and revealing, behind-the-scenes insights. rounding out this massive book are plenty of unpublished photos; a detailed skateboard history timeline including many other skate brands innovations; chapters on the Dogtown influence, Rockit Skateboards and Tracker's other decks; a big scrapbook containing photos and quotes from the Tracker team."
