Tony Hawk needs no introduction for most people—his name is basically synonymous with skateboarding—and most skaters are aware of his historic career. But, even though he has the most exposure of any skateboarder in history, there hasn’t been a feature-length documentary dedicated to the legend’s life and enormous impact… until now. (Check out 2020’s Pretending I’m a Superman for insight into Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater—highly recommended.) HBO Max rectified the situation with its Hawk doc Until The Wheels Fall Off, which premiered today. In its review today, The New York Times called the movie “indefatigable,” which is… good? Watch the official trailer for the movie, above, and then ask your parents for their HBO Max login ASAP!
In the past few years alone, Hawk has produced a Broadway play, performed on The Masked Singer, debuted an apparel line at Paris Fashion Week, cosplayed as Santa Claus, created his own limited NFT (non-fungible Tony), and is basically skateboarding’s ambassador at the Olympics this month … let’s just say that the list of projects goes on and on. Watch some of his videos over the years with The Berrics, including work from our 2019 ‘Tony Hawk Week’ event, below:
