Action sports is full of legendary daredevils and death-defying adrenaline junkies. What is the mental DNA that makes up every extreme sports athlete? In each episode of "Boozed and Bruised," Revolver's new action sports podcast, host Eric Hendrikx interviews his celebrity guests, made up of the world's top skateboarders, motorcyclists, snowboarders and beyond, to explore the ties that bind them all together. Just add alcohol to the mix, sit back and enjoy their unfiltered insights and behind-the-scenes stories.
For our premiere episode, Hendrikx sat down with Bones Brigade skateboard legend Tony Hawk. The Birdman was the first to ever land a 900 in vert competition, gave rise to one of the most successful video game franchises of all time and paved the way for virtually every pro skater since. Listen to Hawk discuss how skateboarding has changed since he and a handful of misfits pioneered the industry, revel in his celebration of 25 years of Birdhouse Skateboards and find out how his son, Riley Hawk, pulled out of Tony's shadow to carve a unique and successful skating career of his own. Listen above.
