From March 1 – 11, legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk will be auctioning off collectibles from his office to raise money for his charity, The Tony Hawk Foundation. Established in 2002, this charitable, non-profit organization has helped to create free, public skateparks for at-risk youth for over a decade, and now Hawk is offering a collection of personal belongings and other special items to help raise funds to build even more.

All the proceeds from the auction will go to the Tony Hawk Foundation. The Foundation has awarded $3,972,350 to 493 communities, and focuses on working with local officials and grassroots, community-based organizations that plan to hire designers and contractors with strong experience designing and building.

The special eBay auction will run until Sunday, March 11 at 7 PM (Pacific Standard Time). Some of the items up for auction include: X Games Champions’ Set, which is a special collection of 5 autographed pro skateboard decks from Tony Hawk, Andy Macdonald, Shaun White, Buckly Lasek, and Pierre-Luc Gagnon, an autographed Michael Jordan Jersey, a Tony Hawk Prototype Doll Head, prototype Airwalk Shoes, five nights in Cancun, Mexico, a custom car, a super slick motorcycle, skateboards and trophies from Tony’s archive, a two-night stay at Hollywood’s famous Chateau Marmont, and tickets to televised tapings of “The X Factor” and “America’s Got Talent.”

There’s some pretty cool stuff, and all sales will help to build more skateparks, and other children-related charities.

Marking its second year, the Arnette 2012 Cash Pot Surf Series is in full swing. The first of the eight-stop series began last weekend at Seaside Reef in San Diego, and the second will be this weekend at Blackies in Newport Beach.

Unlike most surf events, the Arnette Cash Pot Surf Series distributes prize money to the winners of each heat, not just those who make it to the finals. So, top finishers will take home some prize money, but money and prizes are also set aside for heat winners and the guys that simply just rip it up out there. Both the Pro-Am and Juniors divisions were filled to capacity last weekend, with alternate lists for both in the double digits.

It’s first-come, first served sign-ups and beach entry only – so get there early before 6:30 a.m. to make sure you secure a spot if you want to compete. There are two different divisions – Pro-Am and 16 & Under – with $3,000 in cash up-for-grabs at each event.

At each contest, ASP judging criteria and interference rules will be in full effect. The first place finisher in the 16 & Under division will receive $250, the winner of the Pro-Am division brings home $500 and additional prize will be going to heat winners and surfers who otherwise impress the judges.

* 2/26 – Seaside Reef, San Diego, CA
* 3/03 – Blackies, Newport Beach, CA
