    For being “ the most comprehensive skateboarding guide “ it’s pretty terrible.
  • Corrected my past mistakes

    I first started skateboarding when I was very young. I remember only being able to Ollie moving, Pop Shovit and frontside 180 consistently. After these every trick that I tried (Kickflip , Heelflip and others) were very hard to keep consistent. I always wondered why I couldn’t get it. I stopped at the age of 17 because of this. I decided to come back to it at the age of 29. I spent maybe 10 minutes each trick. I am extremely excited because Skate boarding made simple explains in detail everything you need to do to keep the board underneath your feet, and because of this I realized what were my issues with those tricks. I am landing everything consistently now. It only took a couple days !!! I recommend this series to every one that needs to tweak mistakes and become consistent.

    I'm kind of upset that I purchased this. After watching countless Braille videos about how great this series is, how it teaches things so in depth and alleviates common problems beginners have and will help beginners of all ages progress in skateboarding I was immediately disappointed. This series covers nothing out of the ordinary, it gives you the same exact steps that any other tutorial gives you, there was nothing in depth at all. For example, the ollie process... Why not cover it in motion? An ollie in motion is theoretically the same as stationary, but is a completely different beast in its own way. The way you pop stationary is far from the same as rolling, granted you'll learn the difference between the when you try it and fall a few times. But still, for something to be praised and hyped as "so innovative and a new approach" is complete nonsense. There are countless youtube videos, some of which are even by the Braille team especially the skate support videos that cover more in detail than this ever did. The sad difference is, you have to pay for this. My opinion. Do NOT buy this, YouTube videos are free and will do more than this ever will!

    If u watch the braille videos on youtube they basically explain everything in the book. The book goes in a tiny bit more detail though.

    I am very new to the skateboarding community. I bought this book using some birthday money and I am so glad that I purchased this book. I am learning how to Ollie up curbs. Every time I watch the Ollie video, I get better and better. I am so proud that I’m actually gonna be able to ride my board and know how to properly use it. I’m already able to Ollie, I just need to get higher and have more control. Thank You!!!
