Synopsis

Tony Hawk Skateboarder and Businessman by Todd Peterson

This intriguing biography offers information on how to become a professional athlete by tracing the life and career of Tony Hawk, the world's most famous skateboarder. Not only is Tony Hawk the most famous figure in skateboarding, but he is also largely responsible for the international popularity and credibility of what had long been considered merely an activity for outsiders and rebellious youth. Although he is only 35 years old, Hawk has been skating for more than two decades. He stayed with skateboarding through its many boom-and-bust cycles and established his dominance in the sport by completing the ultimate skateboarding feat, the 900, at the 1999 Summer X Games. Known for his clean image and good nature, Hawk is also a successful businessman, with video games, skateboards, films, and a popular sports road show - the Boom Boom Huck Jam - to his credit.
