  3. A week ago today pieces of my skateboard history found a new home at the Smithsonian Museum of American History. It's still surreal. Board donations seem above: Mimi Knoop, Laura Thornhill, Rodney Mullen & my board at the Smithsonian. An amazing day for all of us. #skateboarding #innoskate #rodneymullen #mimiknoop #laurathornhill #smithsonian @si_invention @amhistorymuseum

  8. It was always one of Jerome Lemelson's goals to raise the profile of the inventor to that of the professional athlete. This last weekend, our friends at The Smithsonian's Lemelson Center honored the role in invention by professional skateboarders, including Tony Hawk and Cindy Whitehead.  http://xgames.espn.go.com/skateboarding/article/9410490/tony-hawk-donates-first-skateboard-smithsonian 
  9. Thanks to ESPN for doing such a great job covering Innoskate - I really appreciate being asked how I felt about being at the Smithsonian, although I was still in total shock that morning, so I did not even come close to sounding as eloquent in this clip as I would have liked - but hopefully you get the excitement and the awe that I felt in being there with my skateboard family. Super cool for all of us to have this on video. What an amazing time we all had - I am still smiling.  http://xgames.espn.go.com/video/9417609/skate-history-display-smithsonian
