Many folks born in the 1970s like me grew up idolizing Powell Peralta’s Bones Brigade and the admiration has stayed with me all my life. Consequently, it should be no surprise we had to post something about 46-year-old Tony Hawk “the King of skateboarding” jumping a Mini Cooper S. He truly is the greatest skateboarder to ever drop in and it’s so cool that he is still ripping it at his age. The stunt was performed in celebration of the partnership between Mini USA and Hawk’s Birdhouse Skateboards Tour, details of which you can read in the press release here. It’s worth mentioning that this is great PR on Mini’s part as Tony remains a global sports icon and still very relevant as a youth oriented brand of which Mini is focusing on here in North America.
Check out the video which proves Tony’s still got the moves.
