Some suggested questions to ask after you watch the video:

Question #1:

Tony was exposed to drugs at a young age and saw that they could affect performance. He didn’t want to compromise his own skating performance. Is there something you feel you wouldn’t want to compromise?

Question #2:

Tony suggests that it’s hard to say “no” to drugs and alcohol. How do you say, “no”?

Question #3:

Tony describes the feeling of creating his own tricks as a buzz. In what ways are you creative? When do you feel your own “buzz?”

Question #4:

Tony says that a natural high to him is being present and enjoying what you do on a physical and mental level. When have you experienced that feeling of being present and enjoying something on a physical and mental level?
