'93 Til

Pete Thompson takes us on an exhilarating adventure to the places that made skating thrive back in the late 80s and early 2000s. ‘93 Til immerses us in a thrilling period of skate history, revealing an unfiltered view of a time that has undergone big changes since its small beginnings in empty pools and prohibited shopping centres.

This revolutionary book not only traces the roots of skate culture, but does so through raw and visceral moments shared with skateboarders that showcases how tight-knit the skate community is. What makes this book so different to others is how Thompson shares riveting conversations with fellow skate legends and personal anecdotes that breathe life into the book, turning it into a heart pounding journey through a concealed chapter of history.

Thompson’s alternation between b&w and colour photography allows for us to relieve the memories captured in the images. The rush of adrenaline, the moments of victory, and the connections made between friends are all featured in this first hand account that focuses on the rich origins behind skate culture.
