Tony Hawk is the man, the myth, and the skateboard legend. The now 51-year-old retired skateboarder resides in Encinitas, CA with his family, where he travels, skates for leisure and speaks at different events. And fans of the star can now rejoice - because it seems there's a new Tony Hawk game in the works ...
Here he is!Take a long look, my friends. This is Mr. Tony Hawk, the coolest skateboarder ever.
Fancy a better look?Maybe you recognize him more with a helmet strapped on and a skateboard magically attached to his feet.
Tony in motion.
Skater, entrepreneur, dad and overall Twitter savage.

He's a total legend.
Because Hawk's next venture?He has his sights set on the world of filmmaking!
We all remember Pro Skater, right?The iconic game was basically the pinnacle of skate culture.
And now there's been more exciting news.He's making a movie based on the making of the game!
The movie has been in the works for a long time.Hawk started production on the movie back in 2016.
But it's finally ready to be seen.It set to premiere at the Mammoth Film Festival and then be released to the public.
Curious about the title?Well, it obviously comes from the iconic "Superman" tune by Goldfinger - a song any game player will remember.
It's produced by D'Amato Productions.The company is run by Neversoft producer Ralph D'Amato.
And he seems to be the perfect choice for the role.Because D'Amato also produced every single one of the games in the series.
Swedish filmmaker Ludvig Gur has also worked on the movie.It's based around not just the making of the game, but the entire growth of skating culture.
It features a ton of famous skating faces.Including Chad Muska, Steve Caballero, and Eric Koston.
It's premiered on March 2nd 2020.With many of these skaters in attendance - including Hawk himself.
Here's the trailer.Doesn't it look awesome?
