Tony Hawk in India

“The first-ever skate demo in India might be bigger than I thought. Signage around Mumbai” Tony Hawk
Quiksilver’s legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk will be heading to Mumbai, India in December 2011 for the first ever skateboarding demo in the country. Along with some of the best ramp riders such as Kevin Staab, Andy MacDonald, Sam Bosworth and young prodigy Mitchie Brusco, Tony Hawk will defy the laws of gravity on a monumental vert ramp (4,50m high, 19m large and 18m deep) shaped by G Ramps. The massive half pipe will be settled by Quiksilver for one single show scheduled on December 3rd at School Grounds, behind Dhirubhai Ambani International School, BKC in Mumbai.

Hosting The Tony Hawk & Friends Show in Mumbai gives Quiksilver a unique and sensational opportunity to celebrate the launch of the brand in India and the recent openings of the first 3 stores in the country in a 5 months period.

Tony’s latest appearances with Quiksilver included his show in the majestic surroundings of the Grand Palais in Paris (nov 2009), the European Tour where the greatest skateboarder ever and his crew headlined four amazing performances in Berlin, Rome, Barcelona in front of 25 000 spectators (picture) and Brighton in 2010... Last September, Tony Hawk made a rare exhibition for the Quiksilver Pro New York opening with an unprecedented vert demo held in Manhattan. The upcoming Mumbai show promises to be one of the most spectacular and unusual of the Skateboarding Master.
