Essential Information for Current and Future Skateboarders Skateboarding is back on top of the teen sport scene, and this new series has all the information teens need to learn about this extreme sport. Packed with full-color photographs capturing skateboarding's exciting action, these six books cover many aspects of the skateboarding world, including the basics of how to skate; the popularity of skateboarding in the X Games; buying, decorating, and repairing a skateboard; and a biography of the guru of skateboarding, Tony Hawk. Included in this series are two how-to titles that utilize step-by-step instructions combining text with stop-action photography. The variety of skateboards, wheels, trucks, and gear available for skaters is incredible. It's easy for skaters to get confused when searching for the right board suitable for their size and the kind of skating they do. Wingate eliminates the confusion by explaining the difference in board sizes, the similarities of rubber wheels, and the importance of maintenance.
