He does so largely by recounting the careers of the sport's Yoda-Rodney Mullen, who, in his mid-forties, remains the greatest skateboarder in the world, the godfather of all modern skateboarding tricks-and its Luke Skywalker-Ryan Sheckler, who became its youngest pro athlete and a celebrity at thirteen. The story begins in the 1960s, when the first boards made their way to land in the form of off-season surfing in southern California. It then follows the sport's spikes, plateaus, and drops-including its billion-dollar apparel industry and its connection with art, fashion, and music."@en ;
