Concrete Wave covers the world of skateboarding in a unique light.
Concrete Wave Magazine is a Canadian publication which was founded in 2002 by Michael Brooke. 

It was a continuation of Brooke's involvement with skateboard publishing.

In 1999, Brooke had also his book, The Concrete Wave (the history of skateboarding) published by Warwick Publishing. Designed for a dedicated readership of skateboarding fans and aficionados, The Concrete Wave provides: A spectacular history of skateboarding (1960-2000); Hundreds of fabulous photographs - from the archival to the awesome!; An interview with world champion Tony Hawk, and much more...; All presented in a format both radical and readable and designed to appeal to everyone who loves their skateboard!

In 2000, a television series called Concrete Wave launched.

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.
In 2005, Brooke developed "Evolutions" a DVD that features a number of companies that advertise in the magazine.
