On our first episode of Olympic Dreams: San Diego to Tokyo, we chat with Heimana Reynolds, who headlines a new generation of Olympic athletes on the verge of history.
At just 22 years old, Reynolds is living the dream of a professional skateboarder and riding his number one ranking towards the sport's first-ever inclusion in the Summer Olympics.
A Hawaiian native moved to San Diego's North County to live in the skateboarding capital of the world. He talks about his relationship with the sport's other big names like Southern Californians Tony Hawk and Shaun White.
