Speaking with NBC News, Hawk sat down with Tom Downey to explain his decision for joining Pyramid Country.
“I love the Pyramid Country crew, everything they do is so real and creative,” Hawk said. “I love giving back, and want my legacy to reflect that and I think joining such an original and upcoming team like Pyramid Country is the way to go.”
With the amazing artwork the company offers on its merchandise, to the incredible editing in their videos along with all of their skilled riders, it is no wonder why Hawk would want to join up with Pyramid Country.
