Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Follow-up guide to Skateboarder's Start Up: A Beginner's Guide to Skateboarding.

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-This book, the follow-up to Werner and Badillo's Skateboarder's Start-Up (Tracks, 2000), is aimed at advanced enthusiasts looking for tips on performing sophisticated tricks. The book is divided into four chapters; the first queries a group of professional skateboarders on how they deal with fear, what equipment they use, where they like to ride, and more. Riders will enjoy reading quotes from pros such as Tony Alva that encourage a nonconformist image. The following section features 25 advanced skateboarding tricks, illustrated by numerous black-and-white photographs. The captioned instructions offer step-by-step guidance. Despite the fact that many of these photos are poorly reproduced, skateboarders will be able to follow the tricks presented. The remaining chapters deal with building skate parks and skateboarding in Colorado and Oregon, but they offer minimum detail. Despite flaws, this title will augment heavily used skateboarding collections.-Michael Giller, South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities, Greenville Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
