Tony skates everything and does it better than anyone, making it look fun as hell with the most insane, out of control-looking style out there.
There's nobody more exciting to watch just cruising a park and it's been that way since he first appeared in old 411 VHS tapes in the nineteen nineties, flying around the Santa Rosa skate park. Since then, TNT has been around the world a hundred times over, drank your beer, kissed your girlfriend, won Thrasher Magazine's coveted lucky 13th Skater of the Year award, had multiple Vans Signature pro models, made a baby boy named Waylon with another on the way, married his drummer Trixie con Leche (Ashley), made a time capsule-worthy video part for Transworld's In Bloom, been the Beauty and the Beast tour two-time MVP, had more covers than we can count and generally laid havoc where ever he roams. When it's all said and done, Tony is going to be remembered as a guy that did it his way.
What's the best trip you've ever been on?
Cuba, ‘cause it sucked.
Favorite Vans Rider?
Me ‘cause I rule the school. Old school, bruh.
What trick can't you do that you wish you could?
Stale tuna to my own reach around… Is that weird?
What are some interests/hobbies outside of skating?
Playin’ sweet, sweet music with my ol’ lady!
Last good book you read?
Pure Cop. Chicago police bustin’ crackheads, arsonists, prostitutes and suicide bombers…seemed like a good read.
LAST GOOD BOOK YOU READ?
I don’t really read. I guess the last book I read half of was The Power of Now. It’s on Oprah’s book club so I had to read it.
WHAT ARE SOME INTERESTS/HOBBIES OUTSIDE OF SKATING?
Surfing and that’s about it. I’m pretty boring.
