Congratulations to Jersey City, NJ on receiving the $25k grant from @tonyhawkfoundation. The local skaters worked hard to get a park approved, attending council meetings and lobbying their cause for the last 8 years. We are proud to support their efforts. Other grant recipients: McCook, NE; Janesville, WI; Taylor, TX
Airwalk ad, 1989. I was posing stale 5's this day. Sin Egelja (R.I.P.) shot this photo and told me later that he was using it for an ad. I was on tour in Europe at the time and vowed to learn the trick before the ad came out, so I made my first one on a sketchy ramp under a bridge in Amsterdam the next day. Sin was an artistic genius and we still miss him.
