    One of the true GOATs! such a good skater and seem like an even better person. His parts in Ban This and The End are some of the best vert skateboarding you'll ever see. It's so easy to have a guy whose an arrogant type on top of the sport but he definitely doesn't bring that type of vibe. Tony, Rodney, and Gonz are the holy trinity of skateboarding (in my opinion, BUT there are definitely more other innovators that are rad) and they all seem like super rad people, cementing skateboarding as the greatest sport of all time (again in my opinion)

      @grindcoremaniac yeah i dunno, maybe your right. In a worldwide scale cause his videogame, but skating in general not as much. But lets not get it twisted, he is a fuckin legend. GOAT. Danny way, alva, mark gonzales, natas, mullen.

    I love and respect this guy because he has ACTUAL talent and dedication. He's not some singer handpicked by a corporation, or some actor or celebrity who just happened to get lucky and meet the right person who has a father in the industry. or some modern singer whose real voice is garbage, who uses editing and lip syncing.

    I owe this guy alot. His game as a kid introduced me to skating and the music on that game introduced me to alternative music in turn influencing my lifestyle today completely. In turn influencing my children. Always a fan and still get chills when I hear him describe that x-games 900. A true class act, constant professional and face of a culture, sport and icon. Long live the Hawk!

      @Johnny Thunders yeah but the quality is so so bad, its like wallmart boards... doesnt matter that its for kids, its a bad product, and it shouldnt since tony hawk has his name on it, it should be an indicator that youre safe, cause tony hawk said it was fine, but it really isnt. He should just make better product and buff up the price

    1:23 no false. tbh the first sign that you will be better on a sport/hobby is the first time you got hurt very bad. not the time to quit.
    When I was 12 I started borrowing my cousin's bike to practice riding a bike I got hurt many times and keep on trying one time when I was practicing my path goes on a down hill I dont know what to do cause that bike dont have a brakes so I fallin the dirts and had i cut because of the crankset hit my legs. But instead of stopping their I continued and I learned how to ride a bike. It was a MTB medium size

    Yeah, that was worse than the thing that made me quit lol. I face planted, chipped my teeth on a little halfpipe, and never went back to the skatepark. I never actually learned how to drop into one either. I'm decent at a lot of things--action sports aren't any of them lol.
