SD 500 recap: Few people can be as closely associated with the birth of a movement as Carlsbad native Tony Hawk is with skateboarding and action sports. He leveraged his unmatched talents on a skateboard into a billion-dollar lifestyle brand that includes equipment, clothing, toys and videos. The Tony Hawk Foundation has donated more than $6 million to 600 skate park projects in underprivileged communities across the United States.
