Best birthday ever: Meet the woman who found Tony Hawk's skateboard at Houston airport

HOUSTON – Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk kicked off one heck of a scavenger hunt Tuesday in Houston.

Hawk tweeted a picture of one of his skateboards propped against a post with one of the sculptures on JFK Boulevard near George Bush Intercontinental Airport in the background.

“I just left my skateboard kind (of) close to Houston airport,” Hawk wrote in the tweet. “Finders keepers if you can figure out where this is.”

In Hawk’s tweet, he wrote to "please reply with the hashtag on the grip tape" and the race was on.


Naturally, fans were clamoring to get to the spot, which most Houstonians would easily recognize. Others from around the world asked how much it would cost for them to get to Houston in a hurry.
