Hawk, Tony    Hawk: Occupation, Skateboarder    BIO TEEN HAWK

For Tony Hawk, it wasn’t enough to skate for two decades, to invent over eighty tricks. It wasn’t enough to knock himself unconscious more than ten times, fracture 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 landed it. The story of a professional skateboarder who defied the odds of impossibility.
