What Did They Say?

Tony Hawk on Becoming “Mainstream” After Video Game Success, Backlash

“I would like to be there to try to bridge that gap of the the non skating viewer who is interested, and explain to them why, you know why this this nuance is gonna score way higher than this, even though they look the same to you”

“If you think that the competition element is what is somehow sanitizing skating, I grew up skating competitions. I literally enter my first contest at age 10. That is the only way you got recognized when I was a kid like this is not something new to skateboarding.”

How the X Games Helped Save Skateboarding

“It started to slow they come back really when the X Games came into play, where suddenly we were we were on TV and kids could see how much skating had evolved. Well the whole public could see how much skating had evolved from the time that they last saw it in the late 80’s, and then they were seeing and it was like, well these guys are this is for real you know. This is it for lack of a better word, this is a sport these guys are doing acrobatic things and it takes discipline, and it takes it takes determination, and kids recognize that. And I think they you know that’s really when skating started to spark again.”

Tony Hawk On Going Pro at 14, Buying a House at 17

“So by the time I turned 17, I was kind of doing well in competition and making money, so I’m literally sitting outside of my house that I bought while I was a senior in high school.”

It was a challenge trying to stay focused on school work when you have the party house. A duplex, but yeah it was my own place. But you know like when you’re a senior, oh this is someone’s parents are out of town. Parties at his house. Like my parents were never home, so everyone’s going to my house.

I was just throwing money away you know on cars and trips, and sharper image, just the most ridiculous things. My sister and I went in on a tanning bed together.”
