I can’t say for certain that this is the last one I’ll ever do, but I can’t imagine doing many more. So I’m offering this board to raise money for public skateparks: donate any amount to @thenineclub superchat 1/27 7pm PT (on YouTube), & you’ll actually be donating to @skatepark
I recently made a 720 and it was a battle. The last one I made before this was over three years ago, and it’s much harder now all things considered: recently dislocated fingers hinder my grab, my spin is slower so I need to go higher for full rotation and...
I’m really old.
Recently found a VHS tape from when my dad brought his videocamera to our first day of shooting Search For Animal Chin in 1987. The tape was labeled “Bones Brigade at Dream Ramp” and sat forgotten for decades. Here is 1 minute of footage, including tricks that didn’t make the cut
at a Covid testing site (wearing masks), handing over paperwork for me & two of my kids:
woman looking over papers: "okay... Anthony, Keegan and Kadence... Hawk? Are you guys related to Tony Hawk?"
her: "Are you pulling my leg?"
me: no, we are all directly related to him
I’ll be on Instagram Live in 15 mins telling my story about almost getting to do a Space Jam sequel titled “Skate Jam.” Stop in and watch / comment if it sounds interesting.
This will be a test of potentially more storytelling in the future... of which I have many.
Jake @bigscboy hit me up about dropping in on vert, as he’s been skating with @RyanSheckler. He climbed the stairs to my 13.5’ ramp & asked “I just gotta commit, right?” I said yes but you gotta bend your knees a little more on the way down.
I don’t think he heard that last part.
