Tony Hawk drops his last ever video part ‘Tapes You Leave Behind’

Tony Hawk is a legend for a reason. He teamed up with Thrasher Magazine for what he calls “his last video part ever,” once again showing his resilience and innovation that made him one of the greatest, if not the greatest of all times. Not only we can see Tony doing what he does best, but he also made a nod to his Bones Brigade and included people like Mike McGill, Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain, Tommy Guerrero, and Rodney Mullen.

About the project, the Birdman shared: “Thanks to everyone for the kind words about my final video ‘Tapes You Leave Behind.’ The project was inspired by Stacy Peralta’s first video entitled ‘Skateboarding In The Eighties’ in 1981 (before Bones Brigade Video Show). It featured Mike, Steve, Rodney, and me, using this same [timeless] Ultravox song, from which the lyrics inspired the title. I asked the same crew, adding Lance and Tommy, to revisit some of their tricks in that video and BBVS since we’re all still actively skating 40+ years later. It has been my distinct honor to be associated with these legends through the decades, and it felt right to include them in my videographic swan song.
I’ll still be here skating as much as possible; but no longer torturing myself mentally and physically for the sake of comprehensive video missions. Skate or die.”
