With sequential photos and step-by-step instructions, this guide to a performance cornerstone—the flip trick—benefits skateboarders of all skill levels. Often combined with curb tricks and applied to such obstacles as handrails and ramps, flip tricks are commonly used as the final touch on a more complex maneuver, and, with this guidebook, readers learn the basics of such tricks while progressing toward veteran moves. A section devoted to the history of skateboarding is included with an in-depth look at the individuals responsible for the creation of flip tricks and how they came to invent this aspect unique to skateboarding.
