I saw him skating in SD at park and he gave me his board before he left and signed it. It's been hanging on my wall in my room for over 10 years now
Zoe Raphael
how cute was that when he gave him the board???? omg what a nice guy he didn't have to do that
Courtney Mayo
houzz has it right, marrying 3 great things many of us love; Genuinely awesome celebs, family, and home renos. These episodes are so good! Keep them coming!

He's always been a good dude! And still a badass!

Tony Hawk is my son's hero. He's the reason my Tony got into skateboarding. Now he's 27 and he still loves it. When he's angry, worried, down in the dumps - he hops on the board and everythings fine. It keeps his mind healthy and I'm so grateful to Tony Hawk for being such an inspiration to many and he continues to be that. Such a wonderful thing to do and a fab makeover. Loved the designer "geeking out". Loved Tony giving him the board too. Nice one.

Love how one of the designers is a fan ✨🤗

True love of friendship. When your friend become family that's true love

Tony is a great guy for doing this for his best friends widow (she’s obviously become a close friend of his also) and her family. It must have cost him a fortune with the light being $799 on its own. But I like that rather than saying “do anything” or “let’s make it traditionally modern/minimalist”, he really took into account what she would like! A really generous man.

I was expecting the entire house to be turned into a skate park.

We think PBC and Dave Spetrino and company are the best! When we were deciding on a builder he brought a wealth of information to the decision. This is an impressive episode. congratulations to PBC for such a good job.
Kathleen Howard
Beautiful renovation that truly meshes new updates and functionality with the family's combined sentimental pieces. I sobbed every time Tony kissed Kerry's head. Feel like Ray could feel his love for the family in Heaven.

If Tony Hawk is even half as kind and loving as he comes across in this video, the world is a better place with him in it.

I grew up admiring Tony Hawk,he truly is am awesome person. And Ray Underhill is a lucky person to have known him. I hope Ray is looking down and feeling happy, what Tonys done for his family!

Ray Underhill was awesome and is a total legend. I keep his memory alive from reciting his lines from Animal Chin, Those that know , know!!!!! Du bomp du blink! hahahah . Tony is my hero , has been since 1986. I don't watch these shows but jeez , this is awesome. This gets you in the feels! Thank you.

When Tony Hawk says 'Ray', you don't need a last name to instantly know who he is talking about.

I’m a grown man..49 this year.. former skater.. huge Hawk fan... I still throw an Ollie from time to time ... and I’m weeping over this.. two of my buddies have run into Tony, and say how much of a great guy he was at that moment. Long live the bones brigade!!!

Tony Hawk is the best. I've been skating since 1989, and he wasn't well liked in the 90's because of his mainstream success. I'm really glad that skate culture came around to appreciate him eventually. He seems like an incredibly generous and down-to-earth guy.
The Helpful Assistant
I love seeing the tenderness that Tony has for the family. His friend would be very happy.
Marsha Hare
There is something so awesomely genuine about the fact that tony hawk has had the same hair cut for 40 years

I wish I could give this 2 thumbs up. I grew up skating and have met Tony several times over the last 30 years and he is a class act through and through. I never met Ray, but watched him in competitions. It was an amazing thing for Tony to do that for their family. Hawk fan for life here! 👍
