Tony Hawk is skateboarding to a great portion of the world. He has been the face of it for nearly four decades and while he’s no longer competing, he still is able to put parts out and be more relevant than ever to skateboarding and the larger world.
Below are a few of the juicer highlights from Hawk’s 11-part interview with Bessinger where he talks about the Olympics needing skateboarding, his worst injury, landing the first 900 and much more.
His worst injury
It seems that someone always gets hurt when Tony Hawk and Steve-O get together …
Landing the first 900
And he can still land them these days at the ripe age of 48.
Hawk has previously stated that the Olympics need skateboarding more than skateboarding needs the Olympics. He explains that sentiment a bit more in detail here, but we do see that this interview was filmed before the Olympics announced skateboarding would officially be part of the 2020 Olympics.
