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

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.

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

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 cried. You are beautiful person Tony Hawk. I love you!!!

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.

The bond between Tony & Kristy is so beautiful and sweet and genuine!! I think I am definitely crushing on Tony Hawk just q little more now because of him in this episode. He was so charming, sweet, thoughtful& did i mention his smile? Awww 😍😍😍🖤💙💚 What a good episode. Love this family!

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.

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.

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

Pablo Cruise
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!!!

Anybody who is THAT generous gets my vote.
Safleen Sandhu
I don't know who he is , how famous he is But I think he's a good man !

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.

Classy move Mr. Hawk. True friend.

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! 👍

What an incredibly cute guy Tony is ❤️
Sam Fraulino
This is exactly the lesson for folks with large amounts of money that can change people's lives. The power of change comes with a loving heart, Tony Hawk just showed how compassion and integrity is still alive. I loved Ray as well, one of my favorites, so glad Tony held up his promise to take care of his wife and kids, pure brotherhood.

Darn it Tony. You make my tears Ollie.

Wow, I am appreciating a side of Tony Hawk that I've never seen until Houzz got involved! Love that he is totally generous to his best friend's family and looks out for them this way. The Houzz transformation couldn't have happened to a nicer family in need. Thanks Houzz!
