Tony Hawk

Athlete

Tony Hawk is a professional skateboarder, actor, and owner of skateboard company, Birdhouse. 

He is best known for his pioneering tricks on the halfpipe, inventing tricks so advanced that by the time others caught up and mastered them, he had moved onto the next challenge. He is widely considered the first skater to stick a 900 (that's two and a half turns and a smooth landing!). Extreme sports of all types, including snowboarding owe him a huge debt as well. It's safe to say the X Games and Olympic snowboarding wouldn't exist without his influence.
