What inspired you to skate? like, what made you erally wanna stand on the board and skate until you got somewhere? what was your inspiration.


Hey Jamie, I played the old Tony Hawk games on the Playstation growing up, which pretty much got me into skateing. I have alot of good memories getting home from school playing it, then going out and skateing. I was wondering how psyched you were to be featured in a video game back then in like 1999, and what were your experiences with the Neversoft guys, and or the other Skaters featured in the games.

Hey Jamie,
My names Hayden and Im a skater from Birmingham Alabama, so at least you know where Im coming from. Skateboarding has ultimately changed my perspection on life and youre a big part of that, bro. I support skating and FAITH skate supply tand every thing they do to support skateboarding.
Skating is something that has practically saved my life as well.
I just wanted to ask you, How did you do it man?
How did just one skater from Dothan, Alabama go on to be the skater that has caught sooo many kids on to skating?
How did you get one of the most gnarliest skate teams around together? and make the illest skate videos!
Thats all I wanted to say, man.
keep doin what you do, and keep skating alive!

Hey Jamie, i’m a big fan of yours. I’ve been skating for about 2 ad a half years now and have gotten really good at it.I want to be a pro 1 day but dont know how to get started… do have any tips to help me out…. thanks a bunch.

P.S… u have any tips on the heelflip…i kinda suck at thta trick?

wait wait, I have one more question. I’ve seen you land a big trick, or a part-ender, and put your hand up and motion with your finger, “one more time”, and I’ve always loved it. did you see anyone else do that before you? or are you the proud owner of the “one more try” motion? *J*M*T*4*L*I*F*E*

whats up Jamie, you’ve been my favorite skater since about ’98 when I started. my question is, what did the impact feel like on the leap of faith? because I ollied off a 10-11 ft. high wash, but when I landed, it was like a blackout, and i found myself layin on the ground with my friends laughing. but you didn’t seem shook at all, were you hurt at all? *J*M*T*4*L*I*F*E*
