Make A Change

with Tony Hawk

Tony Hawk is a professional skateboarder and actor. He started at the age of nine when he got his older brother’s blue fiberglass skateboard. He used to practice at the now-defunct Oasis Skatepark at the age of 12, performing maneuvers well beyond his age. By the time he was 16 years old, he had become a professional skateboarder. With time, he was able to start his own skateboarding company called ‘BirdHouse,’ along with compatriot Per Welinder. He also initiated his own series of video games, 16 titles of which have been released since 1999. Through his own YouTube channel called Ride, he hosts various shows and has teamed up with several artists and musicians who have been inspired by skating. He has started the Tony Hawk Foundation for building skateparks for the underprivileged.
