This book explores the ways in which religion is observed, performed, and organised in skateboard culture. Drawing on scholarship from the sociology of religion and the cultural politics of lifestyle sports, this work combines ethnographic research with media analysis to argue that the rituals of skateboarding provide participants with a rich cultural canvas for emotional and spiritual engagement. Paul O’Connor contends that religious identification in skateboarding is set to increase as participants pursue ways to both control and engage meaningfully with an activity that has become an increasingly mainstream and institutionalised sport. Religion is explored through the themes of myth, celebrity, iconography, pilgrimage, evangelism, cults, and self-help.

From its origins as a land-based alternative to surfing, one that incorporated the wheels and trucks used by skateboarders, longboarding, developed in Hawaii during the 1950s, has come a long way. In the 1970s, when the sport was seen as a form of self-expression, it was more of a do-it-yourself hobby. Today, longboarding is bigger than ever. This book describes the sport’s history, gives riders an idea of how to choose their equipment and begin practicing this unique sport. From mere transportation, to obstacle slaloming, freeriding, dancing, and freestyling, readers will be impressed with the many styles of this ever-changing pastime.
