He has also been involved in various philanthropic activities, including his own Tony Hawk Foundation that helps to build skateparks in underprivileged areas.

In 2014, Hawk was named one of the most influential skateboarders of all time by Fox Weekly.

It offered a full "extreme sports" experience, with monitors in the queue lines displaying highlights of the history of action sports and a large spinning Tony Hawk figure crowning the ride.

In 2010 Six Flags cancelled its license and the rides were renamed to Pandemonium.

Following an invitation from his former sponsor, Quiksilver, Hawk assembled a group of vert skateboarders to perform, in 2012, the first-ever vert demonstration to have occurred in India.

While in India, the group visited Gandhi's house, the skateboarders were greeted by a very excited young audience and the 540-degree maneuver was executed during the skateboarding demonstration—the Indian trip was published on Hawk's RIDE You Tube channel on February 4, 2013.

He also plays the police officer who arrests Ryan Dunn in the movie Haggard: The Movie.

Hawk also made a brief cameo appearance in Lords of Dogtown as an astronaut, where he is shown comically falling off the skateboard as he is a "rookie".

In a video posted on the You Tube Channel "RIDE Channel," Hawk says "Spencer was there on my first one, and now he was there on my last. Hawk was invited to President Barack Obama's June 2009 Father's Day celebration and skated in the hallways of the nearby Old Executive Office Building which is on the White House grounds.

This marked the first time ever someone skateboarded on the White House grounds with permission from officials.

On June 27, 1999, Hawk was the first skater to land a "900", a trick involving the completion of two-and-a-half mid-air revolutions on a skateboard; Hawk was successful on his twelfth attempt.

After completing the trick, Hawk commented, "This is the best day of my life." On June 27, 2016, at age 48, Hawk performed what he claimed will be his final 900.

Impressed with the player's skills, Hawk grants them entry into a skate competition.
