Tony Hawk Net Worth
Tony Hawk net worth: Tony Hawk is a California-born professional skateboarder and entrepreneur who has a net worth of $140 million dollars. Tony Hawk has won Gold at 10 X Games, Silver at three, and Bronze at two. He is the first skateboard to have completed a 900 in competition and started his own extreme sports competition called the Boom Boom Huck Jam in Las Vegas. His net worth shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, given the large amount of products that bear Hawk's name, most notably the series of wildly popular skateboarding video games Tony Hawk Pro Skater. His introduction to the world of skateboarding came when he was only eight years old, in the form of a used skateboard given to him by his older brother. The "hyperactive" and "gifted" Hawk quickly discovered a knack for the activity, turning professional at the incredibly young age of 14, and reigning for 12 years in a row as the National Skateboard Association world champion. In the summer of 1999, Hawk achieved what has become his most famous and legendary feat: Becoming the first skateboarder to ever successfully land a 900, which refers to the 900 degrees that the skateboarder revolves while in the air on a skateboard. It took him eleven tries, but he finally did it, claiming afterward "this is the best day of my life." More than 12 years later, Hawk was still able to land his signature trick, giving inspiration to people both inside and outside the world of skateboarding everywhere.
