Miami Inverted details the history of skateboarding in South Florida as seen through the daredevil eyes of Robbie Weir. From learning tricks, such as the layback air, frontside air and the ollie, to making friends with some of the premier Florida skaters, including Alan "Ollie" Gelfand, Monty Nolder and Dan Murray, Weir was in the middle of a new sport that would become one of the main pastimes for kids throughout the world. The book follows him through training, competitions, movie stunts and fashion shoots. Within the pages of this book, readers witness the rise of the sport as well as the way it creates community and offers kids another option to the dangers of the streets. A captivating retrospective filled with some never before seen photos and anecdotes, Miami Inverted details how skateboarding changed the face of suburbia and helped launch one kid from the Everglades to prominence. Simply put, its a skateboard story in a feel good book. With many twists and exhausting turns, it is well worth the ride.
