Synopsis

Skateboarding Skills Everything a New Rider Needs to Know by Ryan Stutt

All the moves to become a serious skateboarder. Praise for The Skateboarding Field Manual, also by Ryan Stutt: 'Stutt's appealing title is rife with the glossy glamour that should win nods of approval from even proficient shredders.' - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books. From selecting the right board, to learning which way to stand, to landing a kick flip, Skateboarding Skills provides critical instruction for young riders of all experience levels. New riders will learn essential skills to advance their riding ability while experienced riders will learn new tricks to add to their repertoire. Ryan Stutt shows riders the fundamental techniques that will lead them to success as they practice skateboarding's most important and widely used flips, grinds and slides. These include: Ollies and Nollies; Manuals; Boardslides, Lipslides, Noseslides and Tailslides; 50-50 grinds, 5-0 grinds and Nose grinds; Smith grinds, Feeble grinds and Crooked grinds; Kickflips and Heelflips; Pop Shuvs; Varial Flips and 360 Flips. With Skateboarding Skills, riders will learn the building blocks that are the basis of all skateboarding tricks. Instruction for both flatground and vert skateboarding, plus real-time action sequences that capture the tricks step by step, will help riders learn how to execute the same moves that professional skateboarders use. All photographs show riders wearing the most essential of safety equipment - a helmet.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.
