Rare Tony Hawk Footage


This is crazy. Below is some dope rare footy of Tony Hawk freestyle skating. Now I’m all with vert skating but this is really where my heart is. Crazy footwork. Check it out below.

Yes, Tony Hawk used to be a freestyle skater before his illustrious tenure as a vert skater, but RIDE Channel Kevin Stab had to dip into a very old stash of VHS tapes to prove it. Shot in 1983, this grainy footage finds Hawk at the age of 15, as he warms up for a freestyle skate contest at the Del Mar Skate Ranch in Southern California. Ex-pro skater Greg Smith, and Tony Hawk himself are guest commentators with Stab for this particular edition of “VHS Vault.”
