I don’t have the skill or the agility to even get on a skateboard. Forget doing tricks. So I’m impressed the stuff Tony Hawk just does here on Earth. Now he’s skateboarding in zero gravity on a good old “vomit comet”.
The sound effect that triggers when you pull off a special trick in Tony Hawk Pro Skater is burned into my brain. That and Suicide Machines’ New Girl. If you’d love to augment your real world skating with sound, check out Skatehack.
In a war between snowboarding and old school video games, my bet will always be on the video games. There’s just no two ways about it. Lasers will destroy snowboards and skateboards, no matter how cool you try to look.
