This review is from: LONGBOARDER S START UP: Guide to Longboard Surfing (Start-Up Sports) (Paperback)
Doug Werner has written a wonderful beginner's guide to anything and everything to do with longboarding. An extremely easy read, Longboarder's Start-Up has photos and descriptive text that literally walks you through the basics of longboarding. From the design of the board and how it effects different aspects of your ride to paddling out to standing up to shredding the wave on a vicious cut-back, Doug's casual style and crisp humor give the feel of receiving a world-class surfing lesson from your local surf bum. Interviews with pros and loads of great action shots make this as interesting a read as your favorite surf mag, only you don't have near as many pictures of beach babes. Altogether, this is a great addition to your library. Don't forget to bring it on your next beach trip.
