For ages 6-12. Since the early 1990s, the term "extreme sports" has come to mean many things. Whether flying off a giant ramp, diving from an aeroplane, or tackling waves taller than a five-story building, these sports push their athletes to the absolute limits. Extreme sports are about more than just a attitude -- they are also about physical grace. This book has them all, from the well-known attractions like skateboarding, to the far-out world of skysurfing. It's all here and in full-colour! Strap yourself in for: profiles of over twenty different extreme sports; the exciting history of extreme sports; a dynamic layout, full of quick facts and large photographs.Kalman, Bobbie is the author of 'Extreme Sports', published 2004 under ISBN 9780778717195 and ISBN 0778717194.
