Hawk skates in more local competitions. He joins ASPO and CASL, skateboarding leagues. His dad started CASL, (California Amateur Skateboard League).
When the leader of the group, Stacy Peralta, saw Hawk skate in some local competitions, he asked Hawk if he wanted to join the group. Hawk knew that in the Bones Brigade there were some famous professional skateboarders. So, Hawk joined and that was very good. Stacy was like a skateboarding mentor for Hawk. Later, Stacy told Hawk he liked his determination, which is why he asked him to join the group.
