Publisher Description

Skateboarding has been around for quite a long time now. It originated in

California by a group of surfers who wanted something to do when the

waves were to calm to surf. The idea took off in no time at all and it seemed

as if it was a crazy almost instantly. The skateboarding trend quickly spread

around the United States and eventually worldwide.

Skateboarding can be enjoyed by many different types of people. There are

people who skate just for fun and then there are professionals who actually

make a living by doing what they love. Big competitions such as the X

games can offer large payouts for the best skateboarders.

If you think that you could never be as good as skaters in competitions, you

need to stop thinking like that! You may not be able to do all of the amazing

tricks that they can right now but that is what practice if for. Professional

skaters did not wake up one day and have the talent that they do. They had

to put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into their skateboarding skills and that

is why they are as good as they are.

If you plan on learning to skate it is important that you know the basics of

skateboarding. Remember, it is important that you always put your safety

first. Helmets and pads should always be worn.

The following chapters of this book will go over skateboarding and will give

you some tips and tricks that will help you to improve your skill level.
