Tony Hawk: Life and Career of a Skateboarding Legend He is undeniably the face of skateboarding. Tony Hawk is the most well-known skater ever to play the sport, and is also considered one of the most recognizable athletes in the United States. Hawk first used his skateboarding to burn off excess energy, but as a persistent and driven child he needed to excel. It didn’t take him long to do that: he turned pro at 14 and just two years later was the best around. After mastering one of the toughest tricks in the sport – the 900 – Hawk retired at the age of 31, and continues to promote skateboarding to the masses. In this video, WatchMojo.com learns more about the life and career of the legendary Tony Hawk.
