Skateboarding:
Top 5’s With Tony Hawk

Earlier this year, at the end of summer, myself and Will along with my socially unpredictable friend Jonny, decamped to NASS festival for the weekend, the antics from which are skilfully recorded here. In the recap it mentions that we got Tony to sign this particularly vulgar indcsn deck, which Jonny ambushed him with towards the end of the following ‘Top 5’s’ interview.

I’m not going to insult everyone’s intelligence by to introducing the skateboarder that even your mum has heard of, but we’ve been sitting on this since we came back from NASS (Tickets for 2017 here) so I’m not sure how it’s taken us so long to get it live, but better late than never, right?

Thanks for your time Tony and thanks for signing our deck!
