Top customer reviews
So to sum up, I'm rating it 3 star because it's, as said in the title, a useful book, but there are parts which could be much better
The book itself is good and very informative. It has plenty of advice and tips from the top skaters in the US. The photos show in great detail how to start up and get rolling and try out the tricks. If you need some inspiration to get started I recommend you read Boardfree about an English guy, David Cornthwaite, who skated ACROSS Austrailia!
This book will get you started and guide your way.
