A vintage newscast from a television station in California has recently surfaced because it features a certain long-haired Cali-bro that was on his way to world-wide celebrity.
The video shows Tony Hawk and other early adopters of snowboarding knuckle-dragging their way down the slopes of Sierra Summit (now China Peak) back in 1988.
Tony appears in the video at the 1:00 mark.
The vintage snowboarding vibes are palpable.
I would have loved to chat with these rebels back in the day. They probably made so many stingy skiing traditionalists angry.
