With National Geographic's new series, Extreme Sports, kids can learn the tricks of the pros, use the cool vocabulary, and vicariously experience the thrill of participating in extreme sports without leaving home. Each book is a quick, fun introduction to its sport. Kids will learn about all of the different varieties of the sport. In Snowboard, it's freeriding, piping, backcountry boarding, boarder X, and alpine/speed boarding. They also learn the moves (ever want to do a stalemasky?) and what the life of a serious competitor is like. In addition, there are tips from the pros, profiles of legendary competitors, and plenty of warnings (Don't board that avalanche!) We are publishing board to coincide with the Winter Olympics and the Winter X Games.
