While Tony Hawk is widely known as a skateboard icon and entrepreneur, few people know he had another passion before his sports career – one that he gave up as a kid for skateboarding.

In this 'Trep Talk Extra, Hawk reveals his earlier passion, why even he's surprised he can "eat anything" and shares his go-to music whenever he needs an attitude adjustment.

Tony Hawk's adventure sports empire includes skateboard company Birdhouse Projects, the Hawk Clothing line, a wildly popular video game series, and his production company 900 Films that teamed with YouTube this year to launch the Ride Channel. He has also donated more than $4 million to nearly 500 skatepark projects throughout the country through the Tony Hawk Foundation.
