Hudson Riley Hawk is the firstborn of Tony Hawk and his first wife Cindy Dunbar. He was named after one of his paternal ancestors.
Riley got involved into the world of skateboarding when he was 3 and at 21, he has already become a professional. In 2013, he was named Amateur of the Year by Skateboarder Magazine. Currently, he takes part in various national and international competitions, being sponsored by Rixton clothes, Lakai shoes and Baker Skateboards.
Moreover, Riley Hawk is a music addict who is now a member of Warish rock band while his hobby is building bikes. He is also a businessman and runs Steel Mill Coffee shop in Oceanside with his friends, which also sells vintage music records.
Being rather a creative personality, Riley appeared in Trailer Park Boys: Out of the Park and Loiter Squad television series as well as made stunts for Max Keeble’s Big Move. Moreover, he was featured in his father’s video games.
A curious fact: Riley has many tattoos. Some of them are done by his friends while some are his own work. He made the first tattoo of a little Black Sabbath demon on his leg. Moreover, despite his mother’s objections as to making sleeves, he ended up with them anyway. Moreover, he did a portrait of Cindy on his left forearm and she loved it.
