CHRISTIAN HOSOI - MY LIFE AS A SKATEBOARDER JUNKIE INMATE PASTOR
While checking good old Facebook last week I came across a post from a friend of mine that Christian had a new book out, a life memoir, that was released on 06/12/12 and he was having a Q&A Session about the book at the Sanctuary Church in Westminster, CA, where he's an ordained Associate Pastor. I ordered the book on Amazon and finished it up before the Session and have to admit it was a great read as his live is an inspirational story of Redemption. I'll have to admit hearing Christian speak was very motivating and getting the chance to meet him and having the book signed was an extremely humbling experience.
Hosoi is having another book signing next Wednesday 06/27/12 at the Barnes and Noble at 7881 Edinger Avenue, Huntington Beach, CA at 7 PM. If anyone wants a signed copy of the book I'd be happy to purchase one and get it signed for you and mail it out. I will only charge actual shipping. You'd be looking at $29.08 for the book (including sales tax) plus $5.00 to ship it in the US and $15.00 internationally. Grand total would be $34.08 in the US and $44.08 International if I can get it for less I will refund you the difference. If interested you can email me at email@example.com by Wednesday 06/27/12 at noon Pacific Standard Time and I'd be happy to have Christian sign a book for you and I'll mail it out right away!
Check out the OC Register ARTICLE and the Hosoi interview at the INDIE SPIRITUALIST as both are great. For those who haven't already seen Christian's 2006 Documentary entitled "Rising Son" and you're a Netflix Streaming Subscriber, you can do so HERE; you won't be disappointed as its an awesome movie!
Also check out HOSOI SKATEBOARDS as Christian recently restarted the company and he has old and new school Hammerhead decks, t-shirts, and stickers along with some great photos and all the latest updates with his skateboarding and ministry.

As a kid I hated Hosoi. My heroes were Powell skaters and in style and attitude they seemed like his rival camp. I could go into all the reasons why I didn't like him but I would have to summon my twelve year old self and that kids long gone. That being said, I've seen the movie and it's great. It took me back. I still didn't like the eighteen year old Hosoi, but it was clear and sad to see, that environment, fame and just being young and rich can really fuck you up. The Gator movie is also pretty sad in the same way. Ironically I've seen the Tony Hawk book but wasn't really interested in reading it, but the Hosoi book appeals to me a little more.
