Question by X(WIERDO,


I really want to go to skate camp but it’s too expensive and there’s no one to teach me. What can I do?


I have something to say about money and sports. Money may make things easier for skateboarding athletes to learn, go to camps, get the best equipment, the best technology and top-notch coaching, but that doesn’t necessarily mean those athletes are automatically going to make it to the pros.


No matter who you are, no matter how much money you have, if you have the will, there is a way! Don’t believe me? Let me tell you a story.


The Glory Story

Tony's 1st BoardTony's 1st Board

There once was a young boy named Tony. He was only 8 years old but got into a lot of trouble. One day his older brother bought him a cheap used skateboard so Tony had something fun to do.


Dad's RampDad's Ramp

Tony practiced tricks and maneuvers and showed so much improvement that his dad decided to build him a ramp right in his backyard. Tony practiced 6 hours a day. He was so persistent that he never quit practicing a trick no matter how many times he failed.


Teen Star TonyTeen Star Tony

The boy turned into a star. He was so good that before he graduated from high school, he was making $100,000 a year in sponsorship and skateboarding-competition prizes. Today he is known as the greatest skateboarder of all-time. He is the legendary Tony Hawk.

Tony never needed skate camps, fancy skateboards or coaches to teach him tricks. He took it upon himself to practice everyday and try hard. He suffered through injuries, cuts and bruises, but that’s what it takes to learn and get better at skateboarding.


Anyways, the moral of the story is that you don’t need everything that you think you do to get skills. All it takes is a decent skateboard, some hard work, dedication and some bumps and bruises.
