When we say that Tony Hawk is a legendary skateboarder, you better believe we mean it: throughout his career, he won over 70 skateboarding competitions, invented some amazing skateboarding tricks and even started a successful skateboard company called Birdhouse Skateboards. The skateboarder even started his own foundation back in 2002, called the Tony Hawk Foundation, that aims to help build safe skateparks in low-income areas.

Back in 1999, Tony Hawk became the first person ever to successfully land a trick called the “900” – a 900-degree aerial spin. It took him twelve tries and upon finally landing it, the skater said it was the best day of his life.

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Something that always peeks his interests is old technology, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
