Tony Hawk

Tony Hawk is the most iconic skateboarder on the planet.  Today, is his wedding anniversary…and also the anniversary of the greatest moment in skateboarding history, the first ever 900.  Tony Hawk’s 900 at the X Games in San Francisco, CA was LIVE on national television.  For the first time, millions of viewers saw what really goes into skateboarding…passion, determination, camaraderie and perseverance.  Shortly after that, Tony Hawk Pro Skater (THPS) was released and a whole new generation of skateboarders were born.  It truly was, “the perfect storm.”   But there’s more to the story than just that one fateful night in SF.  Our host, Torey Pudwill takes us back, while influential skate figures such as; Rodney Mullen, Jamie Thomas, Bob Burnquist, Colin McKay, Andy Macdonald and Bucky Lasek break down the moment and the impact on skateboarding.
