From old school to hard core, Dysfunctional was the first international overview of contemporary skateboard culture. Unlike conventional skate media it is not about tricks and competitions, but rather focuses on ideas and attitudes - the experiences and details that make skating the vibrant and lasting youth subculture that it is. Dysfunctional is highly visual, a brilliant collection of graphic clues that recreate the patina of skate style. There are the inevitable injuries, scruffy clothing, popular outlets, t-shirt graphics, cutting edge advertising, photography, painting, magazines, video sequences, and the toughest locations from Los Angeles to London. With essays by Garry Davis and Craig Stecyk.

With colour plates featuring examples of skate related photography and design, this work bypasses the hype surrounding skateboarding using direct and challenging images that speak for themselves. Artwork, photography, boards, zines, publications, advertising and contributors biographies are featured.
