Much like earlier generations built baseball fields and basketball courts, modern-day municipalities and other entities are building skate parks. In this book, readers will discover how there has rarely been as good an era to skate street courses and obstacles at local parks, which provide the challenge and variety skaters used to only be able to find on the streets.

Enthusiasts who want something less conventional than traditional skateboarding might look into two other related sports: street luge and dirtboarding. This book explores these two offshoots of skating that have much in common with the winter sports luge and snowboarding, while also highlighting these sports unique attractions. Street luge gives riders the speed they may not get from regular skating, while dirtboarding enthusiasts like being able to skate on uneven terrain year-round, with or without snow. From safety and equipment to beginner lessons and beyond, this book is a valuable resource for skaters looking to go off the beaten path.
