The United Skates of Mid-America


Our book on the history of skateboarding in the midwest is underway. We have already received over 250 photos from various contributors that are sure to take you back in time. If you have been skateboarding in the Southern Illinois or St Louis area for any real period of time and you can remember the days before the concrete skatepark boom, check out our "Mid-American Skateboard Project" group on facebook right HERE. If you think that you have something you would like to contribute join the group and let us know.

This project is on a 2 year schedule as of now so there is plenty of time to start looking for those photos that are tucked away somewhere. The first year will be spent collecting photos, newspaper clippings, stories, etc and the remaining time will be spent laying it out and getting it ready for print. You can also contact us with any questions at jollyrogerskateboards@charter.net.
