Early Life

Hawk was born in San Diego, California on May 12, 1968. Hawk was intelligent, high-strung, and hyperactive as a child, a combination his mother described as “challenging.” His older brother gave him a skateboard when he was nine years old. That gift changed his life and provided a channel for all of his energy.

Hawk quickly became an expert at skateboarding. Dogtown skateboards was his first sponsor when he was 12 years old. He became a professional skateboarder two years later. By the age of 16, Hawk was regarded as one of the world’s best skateboarders.

Birdhouse Skateboards

However, despite his talent and success, Hawk encountered some difficulties in the early 1990s. At the time, skateboarding’s popularity was waning, as were his earnings. He had already spent most of his early winnings and was on the verge of going bankrupt. As a result, he co-founded Birdhouse Skateboarding with fellow pro Per Welinder in 1992.

X Games Star and Historic ‘900’

Their business struggled until the popularity of extreme sports sparked renewed interest in skateboarding. In 1995, Hawk competed in the first Extreme Games, later dubbed the X Games. He rose to prominence and became one of the world’s most well-known skateboarders.

Hawk’s popularity grew as a result of his ability to perform impressive stunts. He has invented amazing tricks, such as the “900.” This trick requires the skater to rotate 900 degrees in mid-air — about two and a half turns. At the 1999 X Games, Hawk was the first to successfully complete this move in competition.

During his 17-year professional career, he won over 70 skateboarding contests, including gold medals at the X Games in 1995 and 1997.

Video Games, Tour and Screen Appearances

Aside from skateboarding, Hawk established a successful line of video games, skateboarding videos, and an extreme sports tour called Tony Hawk’s Boom Boom HuckJam in 2002. Although the tour had ended by the end of the decade, Hawk announced in 2019 that he would be resurrecting the Boom Boom HuckJam.

In 2004, Hawk began hosting his long-running Demolition Radio show on SiriusXM, and in 2011, he launched the RIDE Channel on YouTube.

The skateboarding icon has appeared in films such as XXX (2002) and Lords of Dogtown (2005), as well as television shows such as CSI: Miami and The Masked Singer. In 2019, he joined the Vans Park Series skateboarding tour as a broadcaster.

Foundation

In addition to his various business ventures, Hawk has worked with the Tony Hawk Foundation to help young people by creating more public skateboard parks. Since 2002, the foundation has given grants and technical assistance to new parks in all 50 states, with a focus on low-income communities.

Personal Life

Hawk was married to Cindy Dunbar from 1990 to 1993. They had a son, Riley, in 1992, who followed in his father’s footsteps and became a professional skateboarder. Hawk married Erin Lee in 1996 and had two more sons, Spencer (born 1999) and Keegan (born 2001).

After Hawk and Lee divorced in 2004, he married Lhotse Merriam in 2006, with whom he had a daughter, Kadence, in 2008. After his divorce from Merriam in 2011, Hawk married Catherine Goodman in 2015.
