Spent the day watching Tony Hawk and others practice and have to say … check this out tomorrow! Click here to see the schedule of events!
Tony Hawk, Pierre-Luc Gagnon and Mitchie Brusco are among the top pro vert skateboarders scheduled to compete in the Sonic Generations of Skate on Oct. 22 at the Venice Beach Boardwalk.
The team competition will pay homage to three generations of vert skaters with Southern California connections. Each team will consist of one 40-something skater (first generation), one 30-something skater (second generation) and one teen/20-something skater (third generation).
The first-generation skaters include Hawk, Steve Caballero, Kevin Staab and Sergie Ventura; the second-generation skaters are Gagnon, Andy Macdonald, Sandro Dias and Lincoln Ueda; and the third generation includes Brusco, Adam Taylor, Elliot Sloan and Pedro Barros.
Each pro will battle for team points against skaters from his own generation.
“Sonic Generations of Skate” airs in the USA on FOX Sports Network on Friday, November 25th.
