“I’ve said many times that I won’t stop skating until I am physically unable. A broken leg — with plenty of hardware — will probably be the biggest test of that creed. I’ll be back … maybe not at full capacity but I resigned to that notion years ago as I approached ‘mid-life.'” –Tony Hawk
Super stoked to see The Birdman back on his feet walking without the assistance of crutches just 9 days after breaking his femur while skateboarding. The 53-year-old skate legend has a long road to recovery ahead but it’s incredibly heartening to see him walking this early on (however labored) and we wish him all the best. Get well soon!
