Tony Hawk Show Paris Recap

Rad Collector - Tony Hawk Show Paris Recap
Between X Games and everything Danny Way does, it would seem that skateboarding could go no bigger. Well with Tony Hawk at the helm of the massive Quiksilver empire on their 40th anniversary you best believe, anything can and did happen. The preview shots we showed you did no justice to the scene at the Grand Palais once it was filled with funk of thousands of spliff rolling French people. Imagine the Smithsonian in Washington or City Hall in NYC mobbed with drunken shredders going off. That’s right you can’t, because it would never happen. But that’s the beauty of France, anything goes. The day started with a street contest dominated by Bastien Salabanzi followed by Eero Antilla, and Chris Pfanner but then quickly escalated into all out craze, first with a fashion show featuring 40 of Quik’s top athletes like Kelly Slater, Travis Rice, and Alex Olson, and then onto the main event. With Busy P on the decks, Tony, Sergie Ventura, Jesse Fritsch, Andy Mac, Sandro Dias, Jean Postec, Kevin Staab, and Lyn-Z Adams gave a once in a lifetime performance that included a rare 900 from Tony and Lyn-Z’s first ever McTwist. When the show was over, every major athlete in the Quicksilver organization and about 1000 lucky beautiful people and shred-heads got to party til almost dawn to the sounds of Mix Master Mike and the ambiance of a maison du burlesque. It was off the hook. Hit up ESPN Skateboarding for additional photos and video or stay here and hit up some more pics after the jump, either way is all good.
