Tony Hawk, a skateboarding legend

What skateboard lover doesn't know the name of Tony Hawk? Tony Hawk needs no introduction, as he is a legend in the world of skateboarding. Born on May 12, 1968 in California, this famous American skateboarder is known as the best skateboarder in the world. Tony Hawk entered the world of skateboarding at the hands of his brother Dani Hawk, and he has always been a really hyperactive and demanding person with himself.

His qualities with skateboarding were innate, in fact at the age of 12 he already had promoters who were in charge of financing his career, while at the age of 14 he became a professional skateboarder . By the time Tony Hawk reached the age of 16 he was already considered the best skateboarder in the world, by which time he was part of the Bones Brigade team.

This skateboarder did the first 720 (720 degrees or two full turns) in the year 1985, while in 1999 he became the first skateboarder to do a 900 (900 degrees or two and a half turns). This sport, born in the United States in the middle of the last century, saw the birth of this discipline due to bad weather days for surfing, where skate wheels began to be added to the same surfboards. But in the 1980s this sport had a great boom, and authentic skateboarding professionals began to appear.

Despite the passing of the years, it should be noted that Hawk is still as fresh as ever and has shown everyone that the passing of the years does not affect him at all and he continues to practice this sport as normal.
