How rich is Tony Hawk?

Tony Hawk is probably the most famous skateboarder in the world. After all, the American, who is now a father of four, managed to secure eleven world championship titles. This has made the multi-millionaire a living legend. At just 16, this man was considered the best skater on earth. This has earned him sufficient fortune to enable Tony to buy his first house when he was just 17 years old. Two years later, his finances were sufficient to secure an estate in Fallbrook. However, his actual winning streak didn’t start until the mid-1980s. Tony Hawk ‘s estimated net worth is £125 million .

Skateboard world champion Birdman

He not only became world champion eleven times, but also won these titles back to back. During this time, the skater ace took part in 103 competitions. After all, the native Californian decided 73 of these competitions in his favour. He finished 2nd in 19 competitions. Also during this time, Birdman, as Tony is nicknamed, invented more than 85 new tricks on his board .

This includes a trick called 900 degrees, which is considered the hardest skateboard trick in the world. The fact that he was one of the first skateboarders to have a shoe named after it also shows that this man has forever written skateboard history. Incidentally, today’s star owes the start of his skating career to mental health problems . The responsible school psychologist advised Tony’s father to steer the boy’s potential for aggression in an orderly manner. As a result, his father Tony bought his first skateboard and the rest is history

The great achievements of Tony Hawk

At just 14 years old, Tony was already so talented that he was able to take off as a skateboard pro. He began his now legendary career as a member of the Powell & Peralta team. But this man realized early on that he wouldn’t be able to make money with an active career as a skateboarder forever. Therefore, the skateboard champ has built up several mainstays. In 1987, for example, he played in “Police Academy 4 – And now it goes round” .

When he was almost broke in the 1990s, Tony nevertheless managed to start a company. From then on, the Birdhouse company was to sell skateboards and the matching accessories and supplies . The fact that the company founder appeared at the X Games in 1995 was also a real blessing for his company. By 1998, Birdhouse had grown into one of the most successful companies of its kind. Just a year later, Tony stood on his board for the last time as an active professional.
