On Skateboarding starts off with some quick tricks from various skateboarders. Next up, a comment session with Jamie Thomas about the young guns in skateboarding picking up tricks quickly. Bam Margera's section follows and shows the "hilarious twists" of getting kicked out of spots. The third sections contains footage of Kris Markovich, Salman Agah, and Ryan Johnson at skateparks in the Southwest. A non skateboarding part is in fourth place where Mike Vallely explains how he got into professional wrestling. After Wrestling comes a section featuring Danny Way and the ups and downs of his pro career.

I thought 411 was almost the bore Transworld video products are, but even 411 can't suck all the personality out of a video the way On Skateboarding can. I mean, technically itís very good skating and a decent production--but so are the X Games. That's harsh and I know it, but this video seems overproduced to make it easily consumable. Skateboarding is not the wholesome sport this video packages it as. More than likely with skateboarding, you fall, you learn. That isn't really shown except for the Danny Way segment. The last thing skateboarding needs is another Transworld-type magazine (or video). Can you buy this at Kmart?
