Ramp tricks—skate moves made on, over, or around wood ramps, cement bowls, and half-pipes—are a key, albeit challenging, component of skateboarding. Hundreds of captioned, sequential photographs demonstrate precisely how these exacting moves are safely made in this indispensable guide to 40 ramp tricks. Beginning with basic moves, including stalls, grinds, and slides, skaters gradually learn the particular positioning and balance needed to perform more advanced tricks such as flips and airs. A brief history of ramp skateboarding examines the birth of the genre as well as champions of the sport, including the pioneering Dogtown Crew and current stars Bob Burnquist and Tony Hawk.
