Tillman was named after Pat Tillman, a former NFL professional football player and U.S. Army Ranger. He started skateboarding when he was only 10 weeks old. He learned by watching a skateboarding Rottweiler named Stoli, also owned by Ron Davis. At 9 months old, Tillman was on all fours skating. By the time he was 15 months old, he learned how to turn.
Tillman loves performing in large, open areas with a lot of spectators. The faster Tillman skates, the happier he is! Tillman also enjoys snowboarding, skimboarding, and surfing almost as much as he loves skateboarding.
