Tony Hawk’s Daughter Skates Into Twitter Fame

Tony Hawk Skateboarding

Tony Hawk is arguably the greatest skateboarder of all time so when it comes to learning how to skate, he’s the guy you want to learn from.

Luckily, Kadence, Hawk’s youngest daughter, gets private lessons whenever she wants from her father.

Hawk took to Twitter on Saturday to share a video of a heartwarming father-daughter moment. Kadence Hawk, 10, is following in her dad’s footsteps as she learns to skate.


The video shows Kadence balancing on the edge of a half-pipe, decked out in knee pads and a helmet. Hawk tweeted the video with the caption, “I might have been more nervous than she was.”

In just 57 seconds, you can hear the professional skateboarder encourage his daughter as she nervously waits on her skateboard.

Hawk tells her to “lean forward,” adding, “Don’t lean toward me, go straight. That’s the key…”

Kadence waits a few seconds before finally pushing herself down the half-pipe, riding safely out of the frame.

The video has since received more than eight million views and thousands of comments praising the 10-year-old for her bravery.

Hawk has claimed Twitter fame a handful of times through his witty-tweets, but this video is going to be hard to match.
