Concrete Wave Magazine was founded in 2002 by Michael Brooke. It was a continuation of Brooke’s involvement with skateboard publishing. In 1999, Brooke had his book, The Concrete Wave published by Warwick Publishing. In 2000, a television series called Concrete Wave launched.
A 6 page “preview issue” of Concrete Wave Magazine appeared in the publication International Longboarder. International Longboarder was co-published by Brooke along with Tom Browne. It ceased publication in 2002.
The magazine’s mandate is to inject roots and variety within skateboarding. Features have included profiles of some of the world’s greatest skate photographers and interviews with some of the sports pioneers and legends. The magazine covers the entire range of skateboarding: pools, pipes, ditches, longboarding, speedboarding, slalom, freestyle and of course, street. CONTACT firstname.lastname@example.org
