Face it: You’ll probably never be able to skate like Tony Hawk. That dude’s been grinding for decades. But what you can do, is seek his advice—and maybe learn a thing or two.
In the latest episode of WIRED's Tech Support—this time dubbed Skate Support—the 49-year-old pro skater answered questions from Twitter about how to execute eggplants, 540 McTwists, and boardslides. He even offered up tips on how to assemble the perfect board. But unlike most advice-givers on video segments, he also demonstrated how to do each thing, often on a half-pipe. Hawk even had advice for folks who want to get into skating later in life. “Just start slow,” he said. “I don’t think it’s ever too late to start—and it’s a great way of exercise.”
Check out all of Hawk’s advice for skaters young and old above.
