Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Stacy Dillon
Professional skateboarder Goodfellow uses frame-by-frame photographs and descriptions to help skateboarders improve their flip trick and ramp trick skills. From the basic "kickflip" to the challenging "fakie inward big spin heelflip," the core flip tricks of the skateworld lexicon are covered in Flip Tricks. Goodfellow assumes a certain level of skill from readers in that he does not describe how to perform an "ollie," which is the basis of virtually all flip tricks. He also expects readers to know the parts of the board. This book begins with a description of the birth of street skating, and highlights professional skateboarder Rodney Mullen and demonstrates his importance to the sport through listing no less than twenty-nine tricks that Mullen invented. Goodfellow then stresses the importance of the skate video in the progression of the sport during the 1990s; specifically those put out by "Blind" and "Plan B.o Although the photos and descriptions of tricks may be valuable to skaters, the history is scattered and somewhat subjective. Many skaters will look to videos to learn how to perform tricks, including resources such as Tony Hawk's Trick Tips video series, which visually give step-by-step trick descriptions. This book might find a home in a public or school library that is not looking for skateboarding history but rather for a trick how-to guide. The book ends with a list of resources including "Evan's Picks," which highlights company information and Web sites. Further resources are skateboarding books, camps, magazines, museums, organizations, skateparks, builders, videos, and Web sites. Other books in this series include Street Skateboarding: Ramp Tricks andEndless Grinds and Slides: An Instructional Look at Curb Tricks.
