A mix of Tony Hawk and Brian Welch comes together in skateboarding legend Christian Hosoi, who reveals everything about his rise, fall, and redemption, in this amazing tell-all—from being named the greatest skater of all time to bottoming out on drugs to finally finding redemption through God. Fans of Slater Kelly's Pipe Dreams and Brian Welch's Save Me From Myself, and followers of Tony Alva, Jay Adams, and Steve Caballero, will be captivated by this extraordinary, star-studded story, a gripping read that ranges from the heart of the 1980s skateboarding scene to the inside of a prison.

Only time I saw Hosoi skate was at X Games Superpark (btw, x is coming up a week early this year 6.28-7.1) and it was relatively shortly after he got out of jail...he still killed it even after all that time off. Mad respect for him. Hope to see him at x this year! Will def. be buying the book!

Awesome Read! I owned a hosoi skateboard in 87' and I am still a fan and me and my sk8 budz talked about him all the time but never knew what happened to him so he did a good job of hiding his mistakes until the TV documentary I saw not long ago, he will always be a sk8 legend, wont be long before he has a console sk8 game and someone funds his sk8 and clothing line, unless its already reality.

congrats on your freedom! i hope soon you'll be in mexico city for a christian skaters conference!
CH, I hope you have great success with your book. I can't wait to read. I had no idea of the true struggles you had in your life. I know I knew you in trouble times, but it seams that was only the beginning. I'm so happy for the way both of our lives turned out. God Bless!)
