Ages 6 to 12 years. "Extreme Wakeboarding" dives into this spectacular water sport which combines elements of skateboarding, surfing, and snowboarding. The sport's explosive popularity lies in the thrill of watching talented pros fly behind speedboats and use waves to perform challenging tricks in the same way skateboarders use the concrete walls of the halfpipe. Fascinating text and huge images cover: the basics of wakeboards and other equipment; the latest tricks developed by the pros; the newest wakeboarding competitions; profiles of today's wakeboarding stars.
