Tony Hawk Donates First Skateboard To The Smithsonian

Tony Hawk is set to donate his first skateboard to the Smithsonian

In an Instagram post on Friday after, former professional skateboarder and actor Tony Hawk revealed that his first skateboard is being donated to the Smithsonian. The skateboard will be donated during Innoskate, a two-day event on June 21st and 22nd celebrating “invention and creativity in skate culture.”

Of course, it’s not the first time that Hawk has handed over one of his old decks for the sake of history. In January 2011, he donated a vintage 1980’s skateboard to the Smithsonian after the closing ceremony of the “Quiksilver All 80s All Day Vert Challenge.”
