Tony Hawk is the only skater to make protection look cool
Mike Hunt
Again, I'm not a skater at all but here I am watching Tony Hawk videos purely because of his charisma
DBO Irish
Tony Hawk and Eminem never age
TheChadest
He's 50 now, I feel so old.. I remember admiring his tricks as a kid, he was my idol at the time, and he still is..

Question : Why can't you skateboard when you're 40? Tony Hawk : Dude, I'm 49.

I forgot how cool this guy was.
Parker Dodson
I’ll never forget waking up on Saturday mornings and running downstairs to play TH Pro Skater 4 all day long.
Jordan Raney
He seems like the coolest substitute teacher ever
chenrayen
Tony Hawk with pads and helmets answering internet questions is peak coolness bc he’s Tony Hawk
greenlion22
I've never skateboarded in my life but I really enjoyed this video. He makes the sport seem so accessible.
BLAQK !
How many people love TONY HAWK?
Coco Puffs
This guy is so knowledgeable about skate boards you'd think he's Tony Hawk!
Tommy Callahan
Tony Hawks: Underground 3
Patrick Notstar
what an awesome dude, a lot of celebs who answer twitters questions are condescending with their answers a lot of the time, but you can tell Tony Hawk really wants to just help people and give his best advice
Elijah Allen
Baker board: “Riley’s dad” I love it
Muslim Mystic
He's like the Yoda of skate boarding
SpoilerAlert
Reminds me of asking my grandmother for cooking advice. Everything sounds perfectly simple but when I try it myself, things don't end well.

Its crazy how down to earth and modest this dude is, he talks about these tricks as if he just learned them, when in reality, he didn't just learn half of these tricks, he invented and was the first one ever to land most of them, pretty much every basic trick in any skateboarders arsenal, either vert or street, was invented by either him or Rodney Mullen. If you've ever called yourself a skater, or just love skating, you owe so much to Rodney and Tony for everything they've done for all of us, they clearly just love skating as much as all of us, they're always open to talk about and explain how they do the tricks they do, theres no secrets, theres just all of us skater buddies sharing tips and tricks and trying to get better or do things no one else has ever thought of or tried, I've always loved the skater community, theres nothing like it, and really, these dudes started it all. You're a f##king legend Tony, take more credit for what you've done and achieved, you deserve it, for everything you've given to our community.

as if the eggplant question wasn't just a setup to showcase that old trick
Steven Mente
Man! He really knows how to take a fall! Did you see how smooth that was?
zombiepixlez gamer
Honestly Tony Hawk seems like such a genuine dude and even though I don't skate it would be kickass to meet him
Isaak Abou Ahmed
Can't believe this guy was born in 1968, so he's currently 51! A lot of folks at that age can only dream of being so... "mobile", for lack of a better term. And yet, the Birdman is still truckin', probably in more ways than one.
Habibk46
Nice tips, lets try it out On my Playstation
10,000 Subs Under 10 Videos
