Skate or Die! Thrasher Magazine Archives Now Online

Check out a 13 year-old Tony Hawk (bottom right) from Thrasher Magazine's inaugural August 1981 issue.

If you’re a skate head, you probably already know Thrasher Magazine. But did you know that they recently started publishing their back issues online? Check out their covers index, and you’ll find fully scanned archives of every magazine from 1981-1988.

"Look lady, just leave me alone, O.K.?" Bright, anti-authoritarian covers turned Thrasher Magazine into a magnet for young me and plenty of rebellious kids everywhere.

If you’re interested in exploring the three rivers on four wheels, select a skateboard and head on over to your local skate shop. After that, check out a bunch of skate-related books (both fiction and non-fiction) from the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, and you’ll be thrashing before you know it.
