We Like To Skateboard, And Start Trouble

Tony Hawk: “That park was worse than probably the mall parking lot down the street.”

Grinding Edge has been the butthole of skateparks for quite some time. I’ve always heard of rumors of Tony Hawk saying “it’s the worse skatepark I’ve ever been to.” I personally wrote it off as folklore until the latest episode of The Nine Club came out this morning. In it, Tony explains his experience visiting a park just outside of Chicago, and how it’s poor design inspired him to start a foundation that helped over 500 towns build a skatepark.
