Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-- In informal language that addresses readers as ``you,'' the author discusses the history of this sport, the gear required, the surface necessary, and numerous stunts. Special attention is given to the importance of safety. Yellow tips next to many of the tricks point out special considerations and technique hints. Clear, full-color, stop-action photographs draw browsers in. Their creative placement (diagonally, or as steps, or with special edges to look like negatives) heightens interest. Directions are included for making a simple halfpipe and miniramp.
