Tony Hawk's Project 8 Review (360)

We have just posted our Tony Hawk’s Project 8 review. Find out what Clay Shaver had to say about it.
"It’s been 20 years since I was first introduced to the world of skateboarding. Sure, prior to that I had seen skateboards. I think I even owned one, but it wasn’t until 1986, seventh grade for those scoring at home, that I actually knew skateboarders.

They were called “Squids” at the John Hughes-esque white-bread utopia that was East Middle School. The name was there before I was, but I’m pretty sure it had to do with how their hair was cut. They were the alternative kids before there was alternative. They weren’t "Preps", but they knew fashion. They weren’t "Burnouts", but they could party. They weren’t "Jocks", but they were certainly athletes. They were skateboarders. They were my friends.

For all the sports I played in my life, for all the athletic skills I learned, for all of things that I accomplished physically – I’ve never been able to skateboard. Even when I had a large group of friends who could, I was never able to put it together. Hit a baseball 300 feet? Hit a golfball 275 yards? Wrestling? Shot put? Basketball? I met every physical challenge. I practiced. I improved. But, try as I might, I could not skateboard. I could ride a skateboard down a hill, but that’s just balance and gravity. What I couldn’t do was skateboard."
