Andy's wife Rebecca gave birth to their first child, baby boy Haden in January 2006. Andy has always been seen as a conservative skater, but conservative or not, he has earned 16 X Games medals., a tie with the most skateboard medals with Tony Hawk. In 2005, he had consistently high results on the Dew Tour in vert, landing on the podium frequently and finishing the tour 3rd overall. In Big Air, Andy was more consistent than any other skater when he took home the bronze in both 2004 amp; 2005 at X.
Conservative in life and skating, Andy Mac has one of the most versatile schedules in pro skating. He travels the country giving anti-drug speeches at high schools and even did a bar-mitzvah skate demo in Israel (spring). His conservative style has earned him 15 X Games medals, second only to Tony Hawk in Skateboard medals.
2003 was the year of silver for Andy Mac who found himself just off the top of the podium in nearly every big event (X Games, Gravity Games, Slam City Jam). He made up for it, however, by winning the overall VTC, WCS North American, and WCS Overall points titles. Andy has had the highest "Overall Points" in WCS from 1998-2003. He is the only skater to ever receive this title. Andy has 14 XG medals and has the chance to tie Tony Hawk's title of most medaled skateboarder (16) at XG 04. He is competing in Big Air and Vert.
Andy has 10 medals from the seven X Games he has competed in. He is top tier in both Park and Vert. Known for his clean and sober image, Andy has made some high profile appearances in the past year from the White House to Jay Leno to throwing out the first pitch at a Cleveland/Anaheim baseball game (2000). He is also a featured athlete in two museum exhibits: one at the San Diego Hall of Champions and the other at the Australian Gallery of Sport and Olympic Museum.
