Quiksilver and Tony Hawk On The Road – Day 9
Tony Hawk showed up, did a quick interview for the local news, then went straight into the Quiksilver bus to get ready for the demo. Tony, Riley, and the rest of the Birdhouse guys skated for about 2 hours. It was nuts. People crowded the bowl leaving barely enough room for the guys to skate. Once they were done, we climbed up on top of the bus for the product toss. The people in Knoxville get really excited for free t-shirts. This was the best crowd of the tour so far. No offense to the other stops, but the people in Knoxville were non-stop excited for 5 hours straight.
