About Tony Hawk
Tony Hawk was 9 years old when his brother changed his life by giving him a blue fiberglass Bahne skateboard. By 14, he’d turned pro, and by 16, he was widely considered the best skateboarder on earth. World Champion for 12 years in a row, Hawk continues to skate demos and exhibitions internationally, making him the most recognized action-sports figure in the world. In 1999, he teamed up with Activision to create the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater video game, and later that year at the X Games, Hawk became the first skateboarder to ever land a 900, the holy grail of vert skateboarding. Today, his business skills have helped create a Tony Hawk brand that includes a billion-dollar video game franchise, successful businesses such as Birdhouse Skateboards, Hawk Clothing and the Tony Hawk Signature Series sporting goods and toys. Hawk’s fan base numbers in the millions on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. He regularly appears on television and in films and hosts a show on Sirius XM radio. His autobiography, HAWK—Occupation: Skateboarder, was a New York Times bestseller. His Tony Hawk Foundation has given away over $5.8 million to 588 skatepark projects throughout the United States.
