Tony in a video interview claims that he was bullied in school by the jocks for skateboarding. Hawk explains that people thought he was wasting his time because there was no money in skateboarding and only little kids played on skateboards. Tony claims that he never could dream being as successful as he has become today from skateboarding. Turning a pro by 14 years of age he was bullied big time at school and said that they would come behind him and pick him off his feet and spin him around for a good laugh. Tony ignored his bullies and made his dream come true by becoming a world wide celebrity from his accomplishments in skateboarding and his popular video game.
