The only book of its kind: practical, stylish, and effortlessly cool

The Tokyo Olympics saw freestyle skateboarding arrive with a bang, as young competitors from all over the world astonished us with their skill, energy, and camaraderie. Their dramatic contests also showed everyone what skateboarders already knew: that even the most advanced routines draw from a small repertoire of basic moves.

This is the first book to break down those 13 key tricks into clear step-by-step instructions, with specially commissioned illustrations making them easy to follow and a joy to look at. With Francis’s expert guidance you’ll master the basic skills and soon be popping ollies, kickflips, board slides, shuv-its, and more.
