Tony Hawk

Anthony Frank Hawk (born May 12, 1968) is an American professional skateboarder. He is credited with the invention of many aerial skateboard tricks including the Stalefish, Madonna, and McHawk, and over 80 others, but is most famous for being the first recorded skater to land the 900, which consists of two-and-a-half rotations (900?ø) in the air before landing back on the pipe during the televised June 27, 1999 X Games, for which he received an enormous amount of attention.
