What San Diegans Eat – Skateboarding Legend, Tony Hawk

By  | 

Tony Hawk is a pop culture icon.  The name, Tony Hawk  is synonymous with competitive skateboarding.  He made skateboarding cool, and then he made being an older skater cool as well.  He has a skateboard company – Birdhouse Projects, clothing line – Hawk Clothing, PlayStation video game – Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, and he even has a rollercoaster named after him at Six Flags- Tony Hawk’s Big Spin. On top of this huge skateboarding empire, he also has four children who he somehow finds time to take care of. One of the coolest things about Tony Hawk, is that he was born and raised in the San Diego area and he still lives here. And he’s a foodie.
