Editorial Reviews

CM Magazine - Elaine Fuhr
Freestyle Skateboarding Tricks is a book designed to help young people develop skills in the sport of skateboarding, from flat ground, rails, slices, grinds and transitions. The step-by-step instructions are clear, simply written and include an insert titled Common Problems, which gives hints to young learners who face problems with the specific trick. The coloured photographs are amazing action shots of kids maneuvering their skateboards through each move. Authors Sean D'Arcy, a professional freestyle footballer, and Phillip Marshall, a professional freestyle skateboarder, have combined their knowledge and love of sports to write a book that children and youth alike will find appealing and useful. Because all the tricks are listed on the back of the book and in the table of contents, young athletes can find their choices quickly. A very interesting history of skateboarding introduces the chapters.... Freestyle Skateboarding Tricks will be an exciting find for any young novice. Highly
Recommended.
Resource Links - Mavis Holder
For skateboarders with some experience this book may be just what they are looking for, because the instructions are sequenced clearly and excellent cut-out photographs show young people executing all the moves.
