Skateboard Wheel Physics Help!

  1. Mar 15, 2005 #1
    Hey all,

    I'm having a little trouble finding infomation on skateboard physics. More specifically, i need to find out the different physics concepts (ie. forces) that act on skateboards and their wheels. How does friction effect the performance of skateboards and how are skateboards designed to minimise this effect? if anyone has any clues, please tell me! :confused:
