New Pilot With A Question

Hello Everyone,

I am a new private pilot looking for a little bit of advice. I am working on my instrument rating and am looking to get my commercial and CFI and hopefully fly professionally. However, I have a possible conflict of interest between my aviation goals and another facet of my life and wanted to possibly ask for some insight on that.
For the last couple of years i was a professional downhill skateboarder, got to travel around the world etc and it was great; made some good money and "lived the dream" (sorta)… The thing is i would like to do both skateboarding and flying professionally but i don’t know how the FAA would see that.
The sport is borderline illegal–riding on open roads/racing through mountains etc ,but it is still a grey area…
If I continue in the sport i guess id still post videos and try and market my products, but i just dont want to spend the money and time to finish my training then get my tickets pulled–I’ve heard a lot of horror stories.
I already have around 5 skateboarding tickets and a couple speeding tickets, and a misdemeanor for driving on a suspended drivers license. Those were from about 5 years ago and I havent had anything since, but that does not paint a good picture for me. I know that getting on with a major airline is probably not in my cards, however I joined AOPA, got everything expunged (for what thats really worth) and hold a 1st class medical.
I’ve taken a step back, looked in the mirror, and still think aviation is for me, but I REALLY don’t want to mess it up now!
Sorry if that’s kind of a weird question, i figured this would be the best place to ask this sort of thing.
Thanks a lot,
Piper Driver
