Bombing hills, cruising your local jogging path or just getting from point A to B, there ain't much better than a good skatey. Four wheels that let you storm through barelling branches, bang big carves off unsuspecting berms and see you roll safely past booze buses*, all while doing your bit for our fair green planet. The next pages are a guide to all things timber and wheel, so what are you waiting for? Get trucking...

*While awesome fun, ASL in no way, shape or form encourages you to skate while drunk. Unless it helps your chances of getting a root later. then it's okay. THOUGH IF A CHICK'S BOWLED OVER BY PISSED SKATING SHE'S PROBABLY NOT THAT HARD TO CONQUER ANYWAYS, SO, Y'KNOW, SWINGS AND ROUNDABOUTS....
