Thanks Rolling Stone & Eric Hendrikx for recognizing our tenacity: https://www.rollingstone.com/sports/features/tony-hawk-on-25-years-of-birdhouse-skateboards-riley-hawk-w513207

Thanks to Eric André for doing the intro / cameo to Shawn Hale segment in #birdhousesaturdays. What am I supposed to do with this busted mannequin though? (styling by @_galina_) #skateboardskillsloading
Grinding the fence, 1978. Such a dumb idea.... It went bad one time and I ended up straddling the ramp with splinters up my entire inner thigh. I don't think it stopped us from doing it again though. "Youth knows no pain"
Since I first discovered skateboarding, it has allowed me to express my creativity in countless ways. Now it’s your turn: join my design challenge with @AdobeStudents to create a skateboard graphic that expresses how skating has impacted your life. #sponsored #TheFutureIsYours http://bit.ly/2Aid1N2

Thanks #motorcitymini for lending me this sweet Clubman for a few days. If you see me while driving around Detroit, say hello and I’ll give you a #birdhousesaturdays DVD if I have any left. Otherwise, you’ll have to settle for a high five.
