Tony Hawk isn't skating off into the sunset with third wife Lhotse Merriam.

The pro skateboarder, 42, filed for divorce from his partner of five years in North San Diego County, California Friday.

"We have made the difficult decision to file for divorce," the parents of two-year-old Kadence Clover told UsMagazine.com in a joint statement. "We remain deeply committed and loving parents to our daughter, and out of respect for that responsibility we ask that people honor our family's privacy during this important time of transition. Thank you for your understanding."

Hawk -- who wed the lingerie store owner in January 2006 in front of 80 guests in Fiji -- has three sons from his two previous marriages.

He joked to Us in October that his daughter is already a budding boarder.

"She is good!" he said. "She kind of got scared and wants me to hold her hand from now on."
