About the Book

Physics of skateboarding is presented as a motivational educational tool for skateboard enthusiasts of all ages. It addresses the fun, fellowship, and following of skateboarding. The journey of writing this book traced back to the previous ABICS Publications books with the theme of “physics of” an object of interest. We have seen “physics of soccer” and “physics in the kitchen.” Beyond writing this book as a sports-oriented book, we also designed it as a motivational tool of educational introduction to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Physics, as a science, is an essential part of human existence, whether in education, sports, industry, commerce, the home, and social settings. Physics is all around us and we should leverage it to have a better understanding of what we see, do, and experience.
