His skill is to rise toward the heavens on a board with wheels, twisting through the air in ways only dreamed about, never achieved, before he got there. But when Tony Hawk lands back on Earth, he is not merely the greatest athlete of his sport, skateboarding. He is the first skate-bully impresario, a cultural icon-slash-entrepreneur for the Nickelodeon set. If you're a parent, you may have heard of Hawk. If you're a teen-ager or younger, odds are he's taken your lunch money, seducing you with skateboards, sneakers, snack foods and video games.

Near the end of Bero Road in Lansdowne sits an old patch of concrete with a lot of soul. Tattooed with more than 25 years of graffiti, paved and re-paved, the Lansdowne Skate Park survives, and skaters still come to ride its concrete waves -- though things have changed a bit in the past few years. When Karl Peck started skating there in '78, he said, the place looked almost nothing like it does now. The concrete bowl was supposed to be part of a larger park to be built in 1980, but an arson fire stopped construction, and the county abandoned the project.

Jason Chapman saw something familiar when he watched the YouTube video of a police officer manhandling a skateboarder in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. "I've had the same thing happen to me, but worse," Chapman, 34, told a group of skateboarders gathered around a computer at Charm City Skatepark, an indoor skating facility he owns in Baltimore's Canton Industrial Area. Though the officer's intensity angered Chapman and the other skaters, the nature of the conflict - skateboarder vs. authority figure - is one with deep roots in skateboarding culture.
