Who is her husband Tony?

Anthony Frank ‘Tony’ Hawk was born in San Diego, California USA, on 12 May 1968 – his zodiac sign is Taurus, and he holds American nationality.

He’s popular for a number of things, including his wins in skateboarding competitions, for having successfully performed the first documented skateboarding trick ‘900’, and for having built more than 600 skateboarding parks around the world, most of which are in the US.

Tony grew up in San Diego alongside his brother Steve and sisters Lenore and Pat, raised by their parents Nancy and Frank Peter Rupert Hawk. He was so hard on himself as a child that his parents had him evaluated by a school psychologist; it was then revealed that Tony had an above average IQ of 144, and was thus put in advanced classes. He even began entering professional skateboarding competitions at the age of 14.

Tony studied at Torrey Pines High School, and upon matriculating in 1986, chose not to pursue a college degree, but to focus on skateboarding; he went on to win the National Skateboard Association Championship 12 years in a row.

It was on 27 June 1999 that he successfully performed the ‘900’ skateboarding trick for the first time, but then Tony revealed that he was retiring from skateboarding; he refers to that day as the best day of his life, but still competed a few times through to 2003.

Tony continued to skateboard for fun and perform at various events following his retirement. He became the first person to skateboard on the White House grounds in June 2009, when invited by the former US President Barack Obama to perform in the hallways of the Old Executive Office Building.

He has recently briefly returned from retirement, in July 2021, to compete in the Vert Best Trick competition; he finished fourth out of nine skateboarders.

The video game “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater” was released in 1999, while 17 more have since been released in the series.

Tony’s also a successful actor, and has had roles in many movies and TV series, with some of his most notable performances having been in the 1987 comedy movie “Police Academy : Citizens on Patrol”, the 2003 independent comedy film “Haggard: The Movie”, and the 2006 animated movie “Tony Hawk in Boom Boom Sabotage” (voice role).

In 2002, Tony launched the Tony Hawk Foundation, and has since used more than $6 million of his own money to build over 600 skateboard parks; the foundation was renamed to The Skatepark Project in 2020.
