Tony Hawk Gets Surprised With Real-Life S-K-A-T-E Challenge


One of the most iconic challenges in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is S-K-A-T-E, which has you collecting letters scattered across each course as you do your best tricks. Until now, it has been limited to the virtual world, but Tony Hawk got to experience it for real. Now he just has about 16 more courses to go!

Hawk was surprised to find that his halfpipe had been turned into a real S-K-A-T-E challenge when he arrived there on Friday, with balloons floating along the rails above the ramp. He quickly collected all the letters.

He didn’t, however, see the secret tape located in the “hidden room” of his facility. In the games, these are generally only accessible by performing some seriously impressive jumps and grinds. In the iconic Warehouse level from the first game, for instance, it’s in a small booth located above the halfpipe. Be careful, as you’ll break through the walls there and can easily wipe out onto the floor below.

Because it’s 2020 and no one owns a VCR anymore, it’s possible we’ll never see what was actually on the secret tape. It could have been footage of Tony Hawk getting people to do a kickflip in public, or possibly of a self-kickflipping skateboard.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is out now on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. You can collect the S-K-A-T-E letters in the game along with several other challenges, such as collecting textbooks and wall-riding on top of bells in the School level.
