(Roughly translated from the original German)
Hardly any skateboard discipline has changed as much in recent years as freestyle. That's why the twofold European world champion and five-time German champion Guenter Mokulys has completely revised his standard work on freestyle skateboarding. There are more than 50 percent new photos that document the rapid development. The tricks are demonstrated by the best freestylers in the world. This book is the optimal textbook for beginner or advanced freestylers.
