Tony Hawk sits down with New York Times bestselling author and writer-at-large for Esquire Magazine, Cal Fussman to talk about the big part movies played in his growing up, and becoming a professional skateboarder in this episode of Fandango’s “I Love Movies.” This original video series showcases cultural influencers across the globe, sharing personal stories of how movies have touched their lives. The series airs on Fandango’s digital network, including Fandango Movieclips, the number one movie trailer and content channel on YouTube, plus Fandango channels on Hulu, Roku and Samsung’s Milk Video Service.
In the new episode, Hawk reveals the impact of the seeing the James Bond action-adventure, “The Spy Who Loved Me,” for the first time at the age of 10, around the time he first started skating. “This movie was all about me,” recalls Hawk. “There were gadgets and death-defying stunts and it inspired me to do something daring like that.” On the flip side, comedies also taught him to laugh off his first skating experience. “I couldn’t figure out where to turn and ran into a fence – my first experience on a skateboard was definitely out of “The Naked Gun,” like the scene with Nordberg getting caught in a bear-trap.” [click to continue…]

Kelly Slater and RVCA ANP artist Kevin Ancell got together on a project called #ThePod, which pays homage to the movie Blackfish and friends who have passed.
“After watching the movie Blackfish, I was so moved and perturbed with the wild captures and captive breeding of the Orcas that I felt compelled to paint my boards to mimic their markings,” Slater says. “Kevin and I had been thinking about something we could do together for a couple of years and we happened to be on a trip together just as the idea occurred. So the first board we did was painted in Kevin’s word art to say “Blackfish.” Kevin initially saw it as my project, but asked if he could start adding some of his color into the messaging and the second board was painted in the DFW tag.”
They exhibited at Pow! Wow! Hawaii last Friday, February 13, 2015 in a show that was curated by RVCA Founder, PM Tenore. And we missed it.
Looks like X Games 4th place finisher Shaun White is having a little trouble drumming up sales for his upcoming Air & Style event in the Rose Bowl parking lot (not the bowl) in Pasadena, California in February (you know, “Coachella meets X Games”). Either that, or he just likes having local news crews (San Diego CBS 8) follow him around to his favorite Mexi joints.
The famous Snowboarder was at one of his favorite taco shops this morning – Ricos Taco Shop in Encinitas to surprise fans and promote Air + Style. . . The event features a combination of the world’s greatest snowboarders, skiers and skateboarders, as well as live performances from some of the top music acts.
With Mr. Blanco it seems the hustle never stops. Truth is, with a music line up featuring the Lips (both Black and Flaming), Sleigh Bells, Surfer Blood, Steve Aoki, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, and more it’s going to be a great show regardless of the hucking going on the crushed ice tower.
