I am sure with the video games and the crazy skateboarding skills, just about everyone knows who Tony Hawk is today. Mr. Hawk did some sort of appearance in Australia recently and part of it was him riding on this beast of a skateboard.
The thing has a 630hp V8 engine powering it. I don’t even want to think how badly things would go with me on that skateboard. I can't even ride a normal skateboard let alone on with a massive V8 engine.
Apparently, the people that made the thing for Tony speed limited it. It wouldn't look good to kill the skateboarding king at his appearance. I'd like to see him take the thing on a half pipe.
