Since picking up his first skateboard, in 1977, Tony Hawk has changed the way the world looked at the activity -- yes, activity. Skateboarding wasn't even considered a sport back then! He learned everything other skaters were doing, and when he had done that, he began inventing his own tricks. Soon the other skaters were trying to learn from him. Tony went on to invent more than 80 tricks, win 12 world championships, build a skateboarding empire, and -- most impressive of all -- land the hardest trick in skateboarding. In Tony Hawk: Chairman of the Board, you will meet this revolutionary athlete and see awesome photos of many of his tricks. Check it out. Book jacket.
