Want to pick up a skateboard, but don’t know where to start? It’s true, the sport’s cost of entry can be a bit steep, especially when it comes to foundational skill and knowledge that’ll keep you upright, and out of the ICU. But if there were ever a chance to make your life a bit more extreme, it would be now, thanks to Tony Hawk’s Masterclass.
If you don’t know much about Tony Hawk, let us fill you in. With over 17 years of professional experience and over 70 contest wins, he’s certainly one of the most iconic individuals to ever set foot on a board. He’s also the first person to have ever pulled a 900 (or 2½ 360-degree aerial revolutions) in competition, solidifying his achievements in the annals of skateboarding history. In his 16 lesson Masterclass course, he’ll run you through everything you need to know to begin skating, progress in a natural manner, and push yourself every single day. He’s also joined by his son, Riley Hawk, and skateboarder Lizzie Armanto — giving you a number of different perspectives on what it means to find your own style, inspiration, and meaning, and keep you well-informed (and realistic) about each trial’s learning curve. Head to Masterclass’ website, where you’ll be able to partake in Hawk’s lesson, as well as an expansive catalog of others, for only $15 per month.
