My son is just learning how to skateboard and found that this DVD offers a WEALTH of information for those just starting out. As a mom, I appreciate that Tony wears safety equipment throughout and leads by example. Definitely recommend, even for those who might have moved beyond the "basics".

"With skateboarding influencing smaller kids with Playstation's video games and ESPN's X-Games...kids can only need help. For instance, I can remember struggling to perform an olly and finally learning with help. This tape as I viewed it really showed how to do each trick and helped strengthen my friend's performance moves. If you need help with the board buy it."

"I got this video for my 9 yr. old son just getting into skateboarding. We found it very informative and easy to follow. Skateboarding is certainly not what it was in my day and I'm glad I got it for my son. It gave us information on skateboard terminology, safety issues and how to build an appropriate board for my son. All tricks were visually easy to follow. The tricks explained by Tony Hawk and friend were easy to understand. We are now able to help my son practice the tricks he is learning from the video. We all educated ourselves in this hot, new sport. I highly recommend getting this video."

"The best video I've seen. It teaches you how to do many tricks in great detail, also in goofy and regular footing. It's aimes at beginning skaters, but more advanced ones could use it too. It teaches you how to set up your board, how to push, turn, and do tricks like the ollie, the 180 ollie, a pop shuvit, kickflips, and heelflips. He teaches you about ramps--pumping, kickturning,dropping in, and a rock and roll fakie. He teaches you rail tricks and ledge tricks like the lipslide, frontside boardslide, 5-0 grind and many more. I would recommend this site to all skaters."
