Hosoi: My Life as a Skateboarder Junkie Inmate Pastor

Christian Hosoi: My Life as a Skateboarder
(Skateboard News) Hosoi: My Life as a Skateboarder Junkie Inmate Pastor

During the early evolution of skateboarding, Christian went from being the best amateur skateboarder at 12, to reaching legendary status as a professional at 14; yet as his career escalated, so did the emptiness he felt inside.

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, from Hollywood parties to intense prayer sessions.

Hosoi takes readers to the heart of one little-known world after another—and he portrays them in all their gore and glory for all the world to see.

My Life As A Skateboarder will be available on June 12 but is already available at pre-sale on Hosoi My Life As a Skateboarder Junkie Inmate Pastor Christian Bookstores.
