this is tony hawks response to people calling him a sell out and the way he describes how he grew skateboarding makes me hopeful that someone comes along the longboard community to do as well as he did for skateboarding as a whole.

@steezus but that's the thing tony hawks is more celebrity and he has shaped it a lot and many know his name unlike longboarding, where even myself don't know many legends off the top of my head. It's more he did an amazing job marketing the skate community

@ApolloSkating exactly! He revolutionized skateboarding, the problem is that not enough people know about REAL longboarding (not just cruising) so there isn't anyone who's a real "celebrity" who can revolutionize longboarding the way tony hawk did to skateboarding.

Lol your crazy. We could use one of them. It would equal more events, more companies, lowered prices, more respect, more skaters, you just always gotta disagree. @steezus
