I was a hardcore skater in the 80's, sponsored by a local skate shop and met, ironically, every member of the original Powell Peralta Bones Brigade, except Tony Hawk. He was too busy doing phenom-related stuff. I remember when Tony Hawk took the skating sub-culture by storm. With his signature, cool, blonde hair and lanky, bean-pole style, he quickly became one of the most (if not the most) prolific skaters in history."
