Tony Hawk: Skateboarding Legend & Entrepreneur

Tony Hawk is a skateboard legend, entrepreneur and in what is maybe his best role: low-income youth community skate park creator. We start by talking about his first experience signing an autograph (he was 12), what it felt like and how that changed over time. We dissect social platforms, how and why he uses them. He shares thoughts on how Seth Rogen inspires him on how he interacts with his fans and also a conversation about how a surprising names helped him learn more about charity and giving. There’s no question the debut of skateboarding at the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics is due in part to his ability to move skateboarding from what was considered “a trend” to a global sport.
