Watch: Legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk shows off some moves in Belfast
Legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk visited Belfast on Wednesday and even visited a local skatepark to show off some of his trademark tricks.
Hawk was in Belfast to visit the Game of Thrones set in the Titanic Quarter and afterwards made the short trip to a skatepark in Corporation Street.
Spent our day visiting a film set (rhymes with Shame Of Drones) & checking out Belfast skatepark. I sometimes get asked what happens if I show up to a park unannounced; well here you can see it in real time. Good to meet you guys, thanks for the warm welcome!— Tony Hawk (@tonyhawk) June 28, 2018
