Tony Hawk: Until the Wheels Fall Off Plot
The synopsis by WarnerMedia reads, “Featuring never-before-seen archival footage, the film chronicles Hawk’s meteoric rise from an awkward teen outsider in the radical sport of the 1980s – where his father’s efforts to standardize and regulate the nascent competitions complicated his early success and relationships – to multiple X Games gold medalist, trick innovator, entrepreneur, and 12-time National Skateboard Association world champion. While the film celebrates Hawk’s single-minded pursuit of his passion, his relentless, and ultimately successful drive to master the elusive “900” and his refusal to bend to the reality of middle age, it also reveals the perils of fame and notoriety and the constant threat to his physical well-being.”

He is also responsible for leading and inspiring Tony Hawk’s pro skater video games, one of the most popular game series in the history of games.
