Gus just moved to a new town. Due to his skating skills, he was able to survive, make new friends, and show them new skating tricks. DK Publishing House did it again by presenting pictures on every page depicting important moves, tricks, techniques, and safety measures for a skater. A non-skater as well as a skater can learn so much from every page in the book as well as the glossary in the back of it. Terms of the trade were very well presented so that a person new to skating would not feel lost or bored.
Another book on skating, The Skate Boarding Field Manual by Ryan Stutt also shows basic skating tricks (thirty-three of them).
There will be split sessions/demos between Skateboarding and BMX, according to LCRSP (Lake Cunningham Regional Skate Park) on Sat. Oct. 01, 2011, in the District 8's festival "Day In The Park". Check it out at www.sjparks.org/skateboard/news.asp.
