He's 50 now, I feel so old.. I remember admiring his tricks as a kid, he was my idol at the time, and he still is..

Agung Hery Wibawa
I know this guy is very famous, especially in the game because skateboarding is not so famous in my country. But only this time I saw him speak directly. and he is so down to earth.

Tony Hawk: Use the force 1:25
Anthony
This is dope. I’ve never seen Tony Hawk do an informative video. Really cool 🙌

Activision needs to get their shit together. People are dying for another good skating game, Pro Skater 5 was an unfinished and uninspired embarrassment. Give the license to a studio that is passionate about the originals and can actually make a good game.
Ave, True To Caesar!
Love this man. He's almost 50 and still skating better than most pro skaters in their early 20s.
Maria Pia
Coolest guy ever
Amanda Nicole
This man even knows how to set a skateboard omg LEGEND SINCE EVEN BEFORE BIRTH
