Tony Hawk. Where do we even begin? This American skateboarder, actor, and owner of the company Birdhouse has become probably one of the most recognizable symbols of the ’90s. But times change and not everyone today knows who he is. Tony, however, doesn’t feel threatened by this fact. On the contrary, he’s quite fond of it. Just check out at the ways he tweets some of the situations where people have no idea who talking to!

In his career, Tony won more than 70 skateboarding contests, and also has a successful line of video games and skateboarding videos. But one of the things he’s most proud of is the Tony Hawk Foundation, through which he provides grants and technical assistance for new parks, especially in low-income areas.

His ability to perform impressive stunts has shined throughout Tony’s career, and one of its most memorable moments happened in 1999 when Hawk became the first skater to land a “900.” After completing the two-and-a-half mid-air revolutions on a skateboard during his twelfth attempt of the session, Hawk commented, “This is the best day of my life.”
