New trick: The “Spicoli Slide” aka Sean Penn to tailslide (a “Sean Penn” is a backside Madonna) Thank you for coming to my Trick Talk.
Still working on building this in-home skatepark... just waiting on permits.
Here’s a fun yet frightening trick I was challenged with recently. The risk to reward ratio is severely lopsided on this one; my great reward was not hanging up and falling to the flat bottom. 🛹�99
That time @WayneBrady killed me softly with his song on @cwwhoseline. This kickflip might be my legacy.
Happy birthday Kevin Staab! We’ve been skating together for over 40 years and he can still do backside ollies over my head... literally.
I recently joined the @GoDaddy team to help create a series called #GoForth. Follow along as three entrepreneurial athletes tell their stories and show us what real grit and determination look like. Watch the full Go Forth series now.… #GoDaddyPartner
“It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll”
Aloha vibes with the family in the most recent “MASHER” video on @thrashermag featuring most of our kids. Tax day fun fact: taking a family vacation that ends up as a Thrasher edit makes it a write-off expense... at least that’s what I’ll tell the auditor.
My current skateboard (the one I’ve been riding) is now available for auction, with proceeds going to @ERACoalition, honoring champions of women's rights and the ERA. Also available: a signed @Lizziearmanto deck (used by her) - BID NOW:…
1988 “publicity photos” for Vision Skate Escape taken in Venice by @cuffarophoto. Layback lipslide?!? I was such a poser. Thanks to Chris Cuffaro for unlocking your vault and sending these along. The 80’s were magically absurd. Regrettably, I never tailslid the Venice ledge irl.
This is pretty cool: @XGames synchronized our doubles runs from 1999 and 2021. The main difference: my level of exhaustion in the later clip (but maybe not @andymacdonald’s). Other than than, subtle refinements. 🎤:@selemaa (of course)T
After posting our 1999 doubles run last week, the feedback was incredible. I received thousands of comments about the love for that era of skating. The nostalgia was so strong that @andymacdonald & I decided to do it again, 22 years later - complete with @selema on the mic. Enjoy
I’m proud to be part of a new @GoDaddy original series called #GoForth. Following three entrepreneurs, we explore what it takes to be an elite athlete running your own business. Explore the series now:… #GoDaddyPartner
Devo belongs in the @rockhall. You can help get them there. #DEVOTE!…
Somehow I got the raw feed of our final doubles run at 1999 @XGames. It’s awkward to see without commentary from @selema so I asked @andymacdonald to give his version of what he was thinking, and I did the same (based on what I could remember). Here are our takes back to back:
Jumping between buildings in downtown LA for MTV’s Senseless Acts Of Video (2000). The gap was 16’ which was big at the time since “Megaramps” were not a thing yet. I was more concerned about the rain than the distance though. Fun fact: we also scouted Cecil Hotel for this stunt.
Did this trick once 10 years ago and just did it again today for the second time. No finality to it, more like visiting an old friend... or a scary acquaintance.
Don’t make the same mistake I did by waiting years (decades) to invest in your skin. @mademan is the easiest, most effective solution I found. Go to & enter to win 1 of 5 signed skateboards. Save 15% using code “Tony” and 5% of profits go to @skatepark #ad
A winning “street” run from 1991 Münster Monster Mastership (in Germany). My takeaway 30 years later: pumping down bank/wedge ramps is laborious and ineffective. Manual to blunt was kinda cool though.
I recently joined the @GoDaddy team to help create a series called #GoForth, which follows three hungry entrepreneurs as they innovate and find balance while striving for success. Watch the Go Forth series now:… #GoDaddyPartner
Did my last ever ollie 540 today. You can compare it with my first one 32 years ago. This one meant a lot to me…
Yes. But I humbly request a collab.…
Looks like me, but it seems you can never be too sure these days…
“Birdhouse Skateboards, this is Tony”
My tenure as wrestling champ was brief but worth it…
Morning stretches, Friday, 7:50am; before Zoom meetings, school and Zoom-schooling. Shot by @JodyMorrisPhoto for @nytimes…
Epilogue: Irving messaged me on Instagram the day after this happened:
Not sure why this interaction resurfaced, but while you’re here... please help us build more public skateparks by purchasing this signed 8x12: a pic of me from 1987. Half of proceeds go to The @skatepark Project. And yes, I personally signed them all:
The concert was great though. Maynard covered Bohemian Rhapsody!
I wish. What did happened: they hid my vert ramp by hanging it in the ceiling of Staples. When the time came for our surprise skate demo, the winch motors got stuck and the ramp never descended. We ended up skating across the floor & ollie-ing up the stage. So yeah, one trick!…
Way past my bedtime (I’m old) but I’ll make an exception...…
Shakedown, 1979
While we’re on the subject: I’m offering these signed 8x12’s and half of proceeds go to The @skatepark Project, helping to build more parks in underserved areas (inevitably more places for me to have these awkward interactions). The pic is from 1987, btw
Went to a local skatepark that got support from The @skatepark Project on our last day of vacation. A kid recognized me as I got there Him: “Hey, how old are you?” Me: 52 Him: “but weren’t you 48?!” Me: yes, I was once 48 Him: “never mind” (shakes head) Me: time passes, I’m sorry
Unrelated (kinda): I saw legendary skater Chris Senn in the water... we both recognized each other
Surfing in Hawaii, paddling out to the lineup. Guy paddling next to me: “anyone tell you that you look like Tony Hawk” Me (thinking he knows the meme): “yes, but you’re the first today” Him: “you should tell people you are and then sign his name, haha” His friend: “he’s real one”
We talked with @tonyhawk about the revival of 'Pro Skater 1+2,' his delightful Twitter account, and skating being more diverse and open.

Big thanks to @CrashBandicoot for helping us out with this one! Excited to announce that #THPS 1+2 is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X on March 26th, and on Nintendo Switch later this year 🛹�…fO
If this works I owe @CrashBandicoot a customized skateboard… maybe on old-school shape for those big feet.
Just heard #Crash4 is coming to new platforms and I’m kinda jealous. Hey @CrashBandicoot can you hook @TonyHawkTheGame up?
After a long session of having Chris Gregson chase me around a skatepark with his camera while keeping me in frame the whole time, I figured it would be proper etiquette to return the favor. The last few tricks caught me by surprise (which is evident in my spontaneous commentary)
I just signed the last of these 8x12’s (10,000 to be exact). It’s a pic from 1987, taken by @jgrantbrittain at Del Mar Skate Ranch just days before the park closed forever. Some still available for purchase; half of proceeds go to The @skatepark Project:
