This is a great book for young kids and beginners to learn all about skateboarding. It has "Skateboarding 101" for new parents, a great glossary of terminology, and a guide to equipment and maintenance.

This book has activities and exercises to build up your strength, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and skateboarding skills. It has a guide for learning all levels of skateboarding from beginner to Professional. It has a guide to the availability and type of equipment used in skateboarding. It also shows you how to maintain your skateboard. It shows how to start out then learn the basic moves for tricks. In new parent orientation (skateboarding 101) it tells how skateboarding developed over the years. It has a great skateboard terminology section (glossary).

My interest in skateboarding probably really started when I was a young boy skating on quad roller skates on the sidewalks of Los Angeles, California. While we were going down the sidewalk we liked to go flying off the concrete driveways and curb edges. I am probably one of those original skateboarders you hear about with the skates nailed to 2 x 4's or boards.

Professional Reviews

Praise for Learn'n Skateboarding
I have looked at Bob's book for beginning skateboarding. Every young skateboarder can benefit by using this book to get started. It tells how to pick a board and maintain it. It explains some of the basic techniques and tricks that are needed as a base to perform more advanced tricks. It also discusses safety equipment worn by skateboarders, and shows exercises for improving agility and balance.
