When beginning my project, I was unsure of the topic. I went back and forth between a few but was never satisfied. This led me to look up the most important sports events of all time. As I looked at the many results, one caught my eye that was included in many of the lists. This was when Tony Hawk landed the 900 at the 1999 X Games. As I dove into the topic and my research, I came upon the discovery of not only Tony Hawk’s fame, but his influence and impact on the world through skateboarding.
This website was created with Omeka. It was used to insert images and videos into collections to highlight the life of Tony Hawk, his achievements, and his influence on the world. My sources include Britannica, YouTube, and many news/journal articles. This project aims to highlight the importance of Tony Hawk and his life on others.
The first collection describes the early life of Tony Hawk. The next are images of Tony Hawk and his career, along with his achievements and awards. Then, the influence of the video game Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. And finally, the impact Tony Hawk still has today with his own companies and efforts.
