The 45-year-old Hawk just posted a photo of his original beat-up skateboard — made by the Bahne skateboard company — and said the the scuffed-up board on which he began kick-flipping his way to fame and fortune will join the rest of the Washington D.C. museum's collection of art, science and pop culture artifacts.
I will be donating my first skateboard to the Smithsonian June 22 during the #innoskate event. Event info: http://t.co/MDRYTUTAZg

The board will officially go into the museum during the Innoskate on June 22 -- an event honoring innovators in skate culture, reported TMZ.
This will be the second Tony Hawk board in the museum ... in 2011, the innovative pro skater donated one of his favorites that he rode in 1987.
