Hawk’s trip to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave took place this past Friday when President Barack Obama hosted a special Father’s Day event. While there skateboarding at the White House, Tony Hawk wrote on his Twitter page:

“…and here is my exit,” he wrote in a message on Twitter, which linked to a picture of him skating. “Supposed to return at noon for the First Fathers event if they let me back in.”
