Are all these gushing descriptions of books and videos on Palomino a little too much? It's really hard not to when skateboarders consistently outdo themselves and continue to treat us to such wonderful writing as Kyle Beachy's book The Most Fun Thing. It is unlike anything that has been on Palomino before, much because it's unlike anything else period.
Comprised of Kyle's writing from 2011-2020 it's in equal parts a collection of essay's, a memoir, a guide how to (or how not to?) negotiate relationships and a personal love note to skateboarding. As Mark Suciu puts it, "As readable as a skate mag and as complex as the best fiction".
Never has a book balanced stories of skate video premieres, drinking vodka with Chaz Ortiz, David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest and living with infidelity, and I can't tell you how much better the world is for now having one that does.
301 pages, hardcover with dust jacket.
