Update: This weeks Mirror has a piece on Marc, Barry and the book.
Marc and Barry have finally released their long awaited book on the Big-O Pipe. I grew up skating with these two guys. They both know this subject inside and out, and both have logged more hours at the BIG-O than anyone I know. There’s a video documentary on Youtube (with some questionable voice-over work ?) and you can see a bit of them skating here in this video and this one.
Hopefully the book will be sold online somewhere, and I’ll be able to post the link to purchase it directly.
