WASHINGTON (SBG) — With some major help from a thoughtful FedEx driver, skateboarding legend Tony Hawk once again proves why he's the best in the business.

The professional skater sent a Georgia boy new skateboards this week after the child used a rather unique way to get in touch with him.

It all started when Cooper Morgan, 6, tracked down a FedEx driver, Mikail Farrar, as he was running his route through his neighborhood. Morgan flagged Farrar down, gave him a beat up, wooden skateboard and asked him to send it to Tony Hawk.

In the TikTok footage, seen by millions, viewers can see Cooper wrote his own name, as well as "Tony Hawk," on the gift.

There was just one problem: Farrar had no idea how to get in touch with Hawk. That's when Farrar took to TikTok.

"Tony, if you see this, Cooper in Suwanee, Georgia, is a big fan," Farrar says in the video. "Maybe you can give him a shout-out and the next time I drive by his house, I'll show him the video and it will probably make his whole life."

Hawk responded on his own TikTok account. Rocking out to Suicidal Tendencies' "Cyco Vision," Hawk signs a skateboard, "To Cooper, Tony Hawk," with a caption reading, "Heading to Cooper!"

Hawk, who has been inactive on the app since 2018, also filmed a video response thanking Cooper for the skateboard.

"As a thank-you gift, I'm going to send you my skateboard," Hawk says. "Thanks buddy, I hope to meet you sometime."

Hawk's gift arrived Thursday morning at Cooper's House with not one, but three skateboards inside the package.
