The god of skateboarding Tony Hawk is 50 years old and he decided to celebrate them in a beautiful way!
On May 12th, the living legend and even the God of Skate, aka Tony Hawk, celebrated its 50 years. The man who dedicated his life to skateboarding, which we rated in our “Calendrier de l’Avent des riders” in December, found an original way of celebrating its half-century. Tony Hawk has indeed decided to publish a video about the 50 tricks he have created during his career, from the Backside Varial (1978) to the Alley-oop Shove-it Crooks to Fakie (2018). 50 tricks that raised him to the rank of best skateboarder in history, and he shares today on Ride Channel.
“I never imagined being able to skate into my adult life, or that anyone would still care if I did. To celebrate, I did 50 tricks that I’ve created (and/or pioneered on vert). Thanks to all of you that made this dream possible. It’s been an unreal ride, but I’m not done yet.”
With these few words of presentation of his video “50 tricks at Age 50”, Tony Hawk proves that he is more than ever the King. Thanks you Tony !
