About Tony Hawk:
Tony Hawk began skateboarding at age 9. By the age of 12, he was winning amateur contests. At 14, he turned professional, and by the time he turned 16 years of age he was widely regarded as the best competitive skateboarder in the world. When he was 25, he'd competed in 103 pro contests, winning 73 of them and placing second in 19—a record that will almost certainly never be matched. Tony retired from competition in 1999, though he continues to perform skate demos and exhibitions around the world.

Tony's commitment to the skateboard lifestyle and community, have never wavered. Tony has created many brands of products, toys, video games, apparel and, of course, skateboarding gear, all with one thing in common: authenticity. He founded the Tony Hawk Foundation in 2002, which seeks to foster lasting improvements in society, with an emphasis on supporting and empowering youth. Through special events, grants, and technical assistance, the foundation supports recreational programs, with a focus on the creation of public skateparks in low-income communities. The Foundation favors programs that clearly demonstrate that funds received will produce tangible, ongoing, positive results. To date, the foundation has awarded $5.2 million to over 550 public skatepark projects serving over 4.8 million visitors annually.
