Tony Hawk is a skateboarding sensation. At the 1999 ESPN X Games, he astonished viewers by performing a 900, a trick thought impossible to do. But astonishing people was nothing new for Hawk. Since taking up skateboarding at age nine, he's almost single-handedly revolutionized the sport. Whether dominating vert competitions, inventing new tricks, or providing a positive role model for young skaters, Hawk's sheer athleticism and dedication have helped change the way skateboarding is viewed by the general public.
