Skateboarding Skills: Everything a New Rider Needs to Know

Ryan Stutt

All the moves to become a serious skateboarder.
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.
