Yes, Tony Hawk used to be a freestyle skater before his illustrious tenure as a vert skater, but RIDE Channel Kevin Stab had to dip into a very old stash of VHS tapes to prove it. Shot in 1983, this grainy footage finds Hawk at the age of 15, as he warms up for a freestyle skate contest at the Del Mar Skate Ranch in Southern California. Ex-pro skater Greg Smith, and Tony Hawk himself are guest commentators with Stab for this particular edition of “VHS Vault.”
