This was the first video I posted on Instagram: my last ride on my first skateboard, just before donating it to The Smithsonian. I kept expecting a bearing to explode, but please don't tell the museum.
The #wayfinding Skatepark is officially open. Thanks @librarystreetcollective @mcginnessworks @modernskate & @alec_beck for making it happen in record time, and thanks to #motorcitymini for the sweet ride while I was in town. Next stop: Montreal. Next sleep: unknown
I’ve teamed up with Kip Moore to create the “MUSIC CITY SKATE JAM Presented By Harley-Davidson” happening at Music City Walk Of Fame Park in Nashville, TN on Sep. 10! Proceeds will benefit Tony Hawk Foundation & Kip's Kids Foundation more info / tickets: http://www.kipmoore.net/music-city-skate-jam
The #wayfinding skatepark opens tomorrow in downtown Detroit. Free to the public and ready to shred. Thanks to @mcginnessworks @bedrockdetroit @modernskate & @alec_beck for making it a reality. 📷: @camera_jesus
That day Riley Hawk & I set out to create the Center For Children Who Can't Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too (as seen in the newest GQStyle). Special thanks to Sarah Hall Productions for the opportunity.
I helped design this new skatepark in downtown Detroit, but it is not a Tony Hawk Foundation project. The credit goes to Ryan McGinness, Bedrock Detroit & Modern Skate & Surf Royal Oak for providing the idea, space & construction. I think it's a great use of the area and I hope it finds a permanent home in the near future. Opening next week! Free to the public.
Surfing is a way of looking at that wave [behind a boat] and saying "hey bud, let's party!" Thanks to Skiers Pier & for giving us some tasty waves this afternoon JOJ's: Čalvïn, Spencer, Miles, Keegan & moi 🎶: The Ventures - "Secret Agent Man"
Happy birthday to the rare specimen known as Ben Raybourn. I shot this two years ago while on tour in Europe, and it was a catalyst for deciding to make a proper team video. It's all happening; #birdhousesaturdays is coming soon
I went to Japan last week to pick items for the next Japan Crate box. While there, they gave my family a real-life Wonka-style tour of the Coris candy factory. In other words, we got to be honorary Oompa Loompas for a day. For more info on how to experience the wonders (and oddities) of Japan each month go to japancrate.com/tonyhawk Thanks to everyone at Japan Crate for this awesome opportunity. 🎶: Bow Wow Wow
