People do not know that Heath was a skateboarder at heart and rode the pools on set while making the movie. This volume is dedicated to Logan Kincade, who performed as Heath's stunt double for the movie and was a personal friend. Logan is a highly respected artist and skateboarder and has a chapter here of his unique art comprised of layered photography.
Remy Stratton, who is one of the genius's behind the brand Volcom, is also featured, with a 30+ page chapter showcasing his 20 plus years as a professional skateboarder. Scott Pommier, an award winning photographer, supplies a chapter on Ryan Smith, notable skater endorsed by DC Shoe Company and Mystery skateboard, which takes a photographic look at a 10 year period of an epic career. The Skatebook staff goes where no other publication has gone before, with a look at a completely non corporate contest held just outside Sacramento California in a barn inches away from livestock: the 2nd Annual Ranch Jam. 5Boro is a company based in New York City; Skatebook goes indepth with the creators of this brand with a photo pictorial about New York pride and a company far from the center of the industry in California.
Patrick Ryan is 12 years old and is considered to be the next child prodigy in skateboarding; Skatebook asks this youngster about girls, cars, and the future of skateboarding. Chris Phanner is Spain's great hope; Chris came from South Africa and escaped to Spain to avoid being killed. While in Spain he picked up a skateboard and discovered he had a talent that could take him around the world: aiding his family with money, he literally skated out of the ghetto, Chris's chapter is a black and white pictorial that is simply epic. This summer hosted the second Maloof Money cup: in the vert contest an almost complete unkown named Alex Perelson became the second person in history to make a 900 and did so in competition. He is the next Tony Hawk: Skatebook spent an afternoon with Alex at a vert ramp in San Diego taking text requests from some of the greatest vert skaters of all time, asking him to do the tricks they only dreamed of. Skatebook 6 is very epic.
