Item description for On the Halfpipe with Tony Hawk by Matt Christopher...

Presents a biography of the young skateboarder whose athletic style helped bring skateboarding into the mainstream of the sporting world.

Publishers Description
Tony Hawk is a skateboarding sensation. At the 1999 ESPN X Games, he astonished viewers by performing a 900, a trick thought impossible to do. But astonishing people was nothing new for Hawk. Since taking up skateboarding at age nine, he's almost single-handedly revolutionized the sport. Whether dominating vert competitions, inventing new tricks, or providing a positive role model for young skaters, Hawk's sheer athleticism and dedication have helped change the way skateboarding is viewed by the general public.

Reviews - What do customers think about On the Halfpipe with Tony Hawk?

Skating book with Tony Hawk  Jan 6, 2006
Matt Christopher is on the Halfpipe idea what a half pipe is. Matt's a writer, not a skater and it shows. You'd be more satisfied with documentaries or interviews on Tony Hawk if that's what you're interested in. Save your money!

Not worth it  Jan 4, 2002
Why would you want to read this book when Tony Hawk wrote his own? That has all the information on him you need to know--plus more that wasn't covered in this book. Tony Hawk rocks and I would rather read what he writes.
Good for Young Kids  Dec 31, 2001
Like all Matt Christopher books, this is a good basic introduction to skating and skateboarder Tony Hawk, with an emphasis on Hawk as a role model. Young skaters will learn a lot about the sport without the baggage that comes from other sources
a great book  Dec 28, 2001
this is a great it
Lots of glaring mistakes  Dec 15, 2001
This book was obviously written by somebody who doesn't skate and appears to have never met Tony Hawk. The book is filled with glaring mistakes. It's written that Tony and his wife "started their own family when their daughter, Spencer, was born." Spencer is their son!
There are some falsehoods concerning skateboarding as well. The author says that taller skaters have a more difficult time performing tricks in the air. Most of the best ramp skaters in the world are tall! He also states that Tony learned kickflips on vertical a decade before they were invented!
Save your money and buy a skateboarding magazine with an interview with Tony. You'll get better information, it will be more personal and have better pictures.
