By the time Tony was 16, Tony was dominating vert skateboarding competitions, landing endorsement deals, and winning competition prize money. At the time, he was widely considered the best competitive skateboarder in the world. By age 25, Tony had won a record 73 out of 103 pro contests, with 19 second-place finishes. For 12 consecutive years, from 1984 to 1996, he’d been crowned vert skating’s world champion. 

Tony retired from skating in 2003, but his empire continued to grow with a number of business ventures. In addition to starting his own skating company Birdhouse, Tony has released a juggernaut video game series Tony Hawk Pro Skater, the Tony Hawk Signature Series of sporting goods and toys known as Hawk Clothing, started a film production company, hosted a SiriusXM satellite radio show, and produced the immensely popular RIDE Channel on YouTube. Tony successfully advocated for the inclusion of skateboarding as an Olympic event, which was set to occur at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
