Tony Hawk

Anthony Frank Hawk is an American retired professional skateboarder. He is also an actor, stuntman, and the owner of the skateboard company Birdhouse. Hawk completed the first documented 900, licensed a video game series, published by Activision, and is one of the pioneers of modern vertical skateboarding. In 2002, he created the "Boom Boom HuckJam", an extreme sports exhibition and tour that was launched in Las Vegas. Hawk has appeared in films, other media, and his own series of video games. He has also been involved in various philanthropic activities, including his own Tony Hawk Foundation that helps to build skate parks in underprivileged areas. In 2014, Hawk was named one of the most influential skateboarders of all time by FoxWeekly.
