The FTC Book

Posted on

We have just received the FTC book! This hardback book is amazing! It begins with the history of the store and it’s growth, beginning with a young Kent Uyehara’s idea. What follows is a wealth of photos and interviews with everyone affiliated with the store from the likes of Rick Ibaseta, Jovontae Turner and James Kelch through to Del Tha Funkee Homosapien. There is a chapter about the videos and a complete archive of ads, logos, boards and catalogues. It winds up celebrating how what was once a small concession has grown into a Worldwide movement. This is a must have for anyone influenced by everything that is great about skateboarding that was happening and growing daily on the West coast. You can buy yours here. We’ll leave you with Bobby Puleo and Mike Carroll and Rick Howards parts from the FTC video Penal Code 100a
