Tony Hawk Jumps Moving Mini

Remember when Tony Hawk jumped a Lexus LFA a couple years ago? Probably not, because it was so damn boring. The car was parked sideways, for crying out loud! I saw a slow-witted, skateboarding marmot do the same thing one time and the marmot wasn’t even impressed by his own talent. But now Tony has brought his A game in this video where he jumps over a Mini that’s in motion....

Tony Hawk: Sorry for lying about hoverboards

The viral video showing Tony Hawk in a demonstration of an awesome new hoverboard, the “HUVr”  hit the internet by storm. Too bad it was fake as sh*t. For his part, Hawk is apologizing to those who actually thought it was a real product. I know at least one 10-year-old that requested one for his birthday rather than the previously agreed-upon Xbox One. “I wanted to believe...
