    1. This is another book about skateboarding that shows the history of skateboarding and how it changed throughout the years of skateboarding. It showed a lot of information that I learned about of skateboarding. I also learned about new famous skateboarders. Definatly good for a research project.

    2. Skateboarding is a sport with its own philosophy and culture. Both are explored in this book along with skateboarding's history, chronicled with dramatic action photography. Also includes skateboarding technique instructions.
