Tony Hawk is the George Washington of skateboarding, a founding father whose charisma and bag of tricks fueled the sport's growth in the 1980s and 1990s. Hawk won dozens of pro tournaments and was the first to land a "900" (a 900-degree turn, or two and a half revolutions). His video game Tony Hawk's Pro Skater was a hit and spawned an equally popular sequel, Pro Skater 2. He published his autobiography, Hawk: Occupation: Skateboarder, in 2000. In 2002 he launched the touring arena show of skateboard, bike and motorcycle riders known as the Boom Boom HuckJam.
