Description
Raised at the legendary Marina Del Rey Skatepark--where his father was the manager and the Dogtown and Z-Boys crew were his mentors--Christian Hosoi never questioned that he would become a full-time skateboarder. But no one could have predicted his meteoric rise to the apex of a burgeoning sport--or the spectacular way he would crash and then create himself anew. At the height of his celebrity in the late 1980s and early '90s, Hosoi was the highest-paid skateboarder in the world. But the kid who first got stoned at age eight later found himself smoking meth full-time. In January 2000, he was convicted for trafficking $65,000 worth of methamphetamine across state lines. Here, Hosoi recounts the crushing reality of his prison sentence and the day he made the phone call that would save him--to his now-wife, Jennifer. She guided Hosoi toward Christianity, to the faith that sustained him in prison, welcoming him into a new life when he was released nearly five years later.--From publisher description.
