    1.0| Introduction [intro00]
    ============================
    I started to write this FAQ because I was bored. This is my first FAQ and
    I still don't really know why I write this... Maybe because I enjoy
    playing THPS2 so much!
    
    
    Ok, please DON'T e-mail me anything about typos and suggestions or
    anything. If you need to contact me about it, don't do it!
    The only e-mail I will be glad to recieve is e-mail where you ask
    if you can post my FAQ on your webpage.

    Bio:
    
    If you meet Hawk, look at his shins.  You'll see how much flesh he's left 
    behind becoming the most influential skateboarder in history.  He lost some 
    perfecting the first 900.  More went while creating 50+ signature moves and 
    winning 12 world championships.  The father to two boys and modern 
    skateboarding, Tony makes his home in his native SoCal.

    Bio:
    
    Out of Brazil and onto the winner's podium, Bob Burnquist is one of today's 
    most exciting and original skaters.  Blowing minds with his unique style and 
    switch-stance tendencies, Burnquist won the first pro contest he entered.  He 
    then went on to be the first skater to pull off an Eggplant Revert, a move 
    now simply  known as the "Burntwist."

    How long has Steve Caballero been part of the skateboarding scene?  Over

    halfpipe air and 44-stair rail.  Cab's still riding hard, inspiring 
    skateboarding's next generation.

    East Coast, West Coast or any coast, Kareem Campbell and his smooth 
    metropolitan style are recognized on the real streets.  Born in New York and 
    raised in Los Angeles, Kareem defies any East vs. West barriers.  When he's 
    not skating you can find him chilling with his son, li'l Reem.  Kareem's 
    advice for skaters: "Do it for yourselft and keep it honest."

    When Rune was 11 years old a friend brought a skateboard to his home in 
    Copenhagen, Denmark. Later, a skateboard brought Rune to his new home in 
    Huntington Beach, California (He didn't ride it. He became a pro on it.)
    Here you'll find the all-terrain terrorist sessioning pools and streets.
    But he saves the best for his true love: wide-open vert skateboarding.

    Bio:
    
    Who do you want to be today? Think Koston, because he rides like anybody and 
    nobody else.  He'll bust any pro's signature trick with uncanny similarity 
    then transition into the eponymous K-Grind. Besides this move bearing his 
    name, Eric's famous for clowning around while making challenging switch and 
    nollie rides look like a joke.

    Hardened on the East-Coast and currently refining his skills in Carlsbad, 
    California, Charles Michael Lasek, better known as Bucky, soars to sickening 
    heights above half-pipes - and other skaters. He's equal parts power, 
    originality and style. When Bucky's not dropping jaws at the local Mission 
    Valley Skate Park, you'll find him loving life with his wife and daughter.

    Andrew's only been a pro since 1996, but what he may lack in years, he makes 
    up for in air and guts. If you're in Los Angeles, California and you see 
    somebody going huge over massive gaps, sessioning sick sets of stairs and 
    doing it all with efforts style, odds are you're in the presence of Turtle 
    Boy himself. Say "hi" as he files by.
