  • Experienced snowboarders as well as those unfamiliar with the sport will find plenty of information to interest them. The book covers basics—such as different styles of riding and necessary gear—as well as more advanced topics, including various tricks and explanations of how races are judged.
  • Numerous sidebars recount record-breaking stunts and wild facts. For instance, one snowboarding locale in France has a vertical drop that’s nearly a mile long!
  • Profiles of professional snowboarders familiarize readers with the world’s most famous riders. Quotes from these athletes highlight the joy—and the increasing popularity—of the sport.
  • The plentiful photographs capture the drama, excitement, and sheer fun of snowboarding.
