Welcome to my website, my final project for Websiteproduction 1. As you may have noticed, the subject is Skateboarding.
I've skateboarded from the age of 13 untill the age of 23. After injuring my knee I had to stop the sport, but I'm still a big fan of the Sport and the Pro Skaters. In the next section I'll show you a few of my favourite professionals.
Bam Margeras grandfather nicknamed him "Bam" at the age of three after his habit of running into walls. Sponsored by Element and in the top 15 pro skaters world wide, but more famouse from the tv-show Jackass and others.
In 2002, Mullen won the Transworld Skateboarding Readers' Choice Award for Skater of the Year. Transworld also included Mullen in its "30 Most Influential Skaters of All Time" list, released in December 2011 and he was elected into the third position, behind Tony Hawk (second).
On July 27, 1999, Hawk was the first skater to land a "900", a trick involving the completion of two-and-a-half mid-air revolutions on a skateboard; Hawk was successful on his eleventh attempt. After completing the trick, Hawk commented, "This is the best day of my life." Nearly twelve years later, Hawk was still able to land the trick and posted a video on his Twitter account stating, "I'm 43 and I did a 900 today."
