At a drive-thru, waiting on my order, looking at phone. Guy at window: “you kinda look like Tony Hawk” me (turning towards him, assuming he is in on the joke): “haha, cool” Him (looking disappointed): “well, from the side you do. Here’s your food.”

Lunch break with Sky Brown at my office earlier today:

Check out the top 10 teams of the @xprize  Next-Gen Mask Challenge: they are creating masks that people actually want to wear. Vote for your favorite design to help choose the winner: #ngmcambassador  #milliondollarmask  #maskdesign 

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.

Old dog; new trick. I call this the Magic Dance 🛹🕺🏼✨

I was asked during an interview today: “How does it feel to go to the Olympics and not be recognized by competing skaters, like Margielyn Didal?” So I had to explain that she was joking with her caption. My life is weird.

@J_Pompliano  Thanks for this! I feel like I should be linking to a SoundCloud now. Instead, please listen to / watch our @HawkvsWolf1podcast . I promise it’s entertaining… even if you don’t skate.

I got a request from Sky Brown to help her learn @Elliotsloan’s “Mega” ramp. I hadn’t done it for a few years so it was a good excuse to relearn while helping her. Here’s the video I shot of her first & THIRD attempts (there was an airbag below) Full edit:

I’ve been sick lately (not “sick AF” just sick) with symptoms other than COVID-19. But I know two friends in the U.S. with coronavirus symptoms, and they can’t get tested because they they don’t “appear sick enough.” This means there are MANY more cases in USA than being reported

Cashier#1 : “Can I help you?” Me: How long would it take to get a turkey burger to go? Cashier #1 : “About 5 minutes” Cashier #2 : “Are you Tony Hawk?” Me: yes Cashier #1 : “Do you want a turkey burger then?” Me: yes please, and an iced tea Cashier #1 : “Can I get a name?”

One of the few positive effects of these scary times is the increased interest in skateboarding. It’s been uplifting to see so many learning to skate in their “downtime.” I believe they’re in pursuit of the same feeling this Ukrainian girl got when she landed her first kickflip.

Already on it! I'm sending him my current skateboard in return.

#THPS is back! Original maps, original skaters, and songs from the original soundtrack… plus new features. Thanks to all the fans of our series for keeping this dream alive.
