Heralded by skate legend Eric Koston, The Berrics‘ DO A KICKFLIP! series has recruited a variety of famous skaters as hosts, including the inimitable Tony Hawk. Hawk takes on the mantle of Skate Santa Claus for a Christmas edition of DO A KICKFLIP!, doling out gifts for the Californian skaters that take on the challenge.
Hawk is as charming as ever in the over-eight-minute clip, visiting a variety of San Diego skate parks in search of skaters willing to dish out the requisite tricks. Kickflips, pop-shove-its and even a multi-stair cannonball are all delivered with aplomb, as lifelong skaters and young beginners alike perform for free skateboards, hoodies and gear. At the end of the heartwarming clip, Hawk visits a local shelter for homeless women and children to give away the rest of his toys, decks and garments, demonstrating that giving truly is the reason for the season.
