Tony Hawk and his Birdhouse Skateboards team will be visiting Penn Valley Skatepark on August 15 as a stop on the Birdhouse On The Road Tour. The annual Birdhouse Summer tour gives fans a great opportunity to come out and see some of the best that skateboarding has to offer at many of the finest skateparks in the north central states of the U.S.
This year’s line-up includes skateboarding legend Tony Hawk, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki, Ben Raybourn, Clint Walker, David Loy, Kevin Staab, Willy Santos, Clive Dixon, Mike Davis, Shawn Hale, and Shaun Gregoire. The skaters will be traveling in a caravan of MINI vehicles as they motor their way from state to state, capturing high-quality POV video footage of all of their skating and time on the road with Sony’s Action Cam.
“I’m excited to hit the road with our entire Birdhouse team, and to skate the best parks in the Midwest along the way,” said Tony Hawk of the tour. “See you there!”
Tour sponsors include MINI USA, Hawk Clothing, Sony Action Cam, RIDE Channel, AQUAhydrate, and HEXBUG. HEXBUG is joining the tour with Tony Hawk to give fans a sneak peek at Circuit Boards – its never-before-seen game changing twist on micro boards and ramp sets. Sponsors will be participating at tour stops with promotions, giveaways, entertainment and product demos.
