Editors Note For Tony Hawk, it wasn't enough to skate for two decades, to invent more than eighty tricks, and to win more than twice as many professional contests as any other skater.It wasn't enough to knock himself unconscious more than ten times, fracture several ribs, break his elbow, knock out his teeth twice, compress the vertebrae in his back, pop his bursa sack, get more than fifty stitches laced into his shins, rip apart the cartilage in his knee, bruise his tailbone, sprain his ankles, and tear his ligaments too many times to count.No.He had to land the 900. And after thirteen years of failed attempts, he nailed it.It had never been done before. Growing up in Sierra Mesa, California, Tony was a hyperactive demon child with an I44 IQ.He threw tantrums, terrorized the nanny until she quit, exploded with rage whenever he lost a game; this was a kid who was expelled from preschool. When his brother, Steve, gave him a blue plastic hand-me-down skateboard and his father built a skate ramp in the driveway, Tony finally found his outlet--while skating, he could be as hard on himself as he was on everyone around him.But it wasn't an easy ride to the top of the skating game.Fellow skaters mocked his skating style and dubbed him a circus skater. He was so skinny he had to wear elbow pads on his knees, and so light he had to ollie just to catch air off a ramp.He was so desperate to be accepted by young skating legends like Steve Caballero, Mike McGill, and Christian Hosoi that he ate gum from between Steve's toes. But a few years of determination and hard work paid off in multiple professional wins, and the skaters who once had mocked him were now trying to learn his tricks.Tony had created a new style of skating. In Hawk Tony goes behind the scenes of competitions, demos, and movies and shares the less glamorous demands of being a skateboarder--from skating on Italian TV wearing see-through plastic shorts to doing a demo in Brazil a??? ???????? ?? ??? ???? ???? ???????? ???? ???? ?????????????? ????? ???? ????????? ??? ??? ?????????? ??? ????? ???????? ?? ????? ??????? ???? ? ??????? ?? ??? ????????? ?? ????? ??? ??????????? ???? ??????? ??? ????????????? ???? ?? ??? ?????????? ???????? ?????? ?????? ?? ??? ???? ?? ? ??? ?????? ??? ?????? ?????? ?????? ?? ???? ?? ??? ???? ?? ? ?????? ????? ??? ???? ????????? ???? ????? ???????? ??? ?????? ???????? ?????????? ??? ??????? ???? ??? ???? ?? ??? ?????? ??? ??? ??? ?????????????? ???? ????? ?????????????????????????? ?????? ???????? ???? ??????? ??? ??????? ?? ????? ????? ??? ???????? ???????????? ?? ? ???????? ??? ??? ????????????? ???? ??? ?????? ??? ??????? ?? ????? ? ???? ???? ?? ??? ??????????? ???? ??? ????????????? ??????? ?? ??? ?? ?? ?? ?? ??? ?? ?? ????????? ????? ???????? ????? ???????? ????? ????????? ???? ????????? ??? ?????????? ??? ????? ?????? ?? ????? ??? ???? ??????? ?? ?????????????????? ???? ???? ??? ?????? ??? ?? ????? ??? ??? ????? ??? ??? ???????????? ????? ????? ? ?????????????? ?????
