Tony Hawk is coming to a city near you this summer! We got the scoop on the skateboarding legend's exciting action sports tour!

The 411

Six years ago, legendary skater Tony Hawk created the Boom Boom HuckJam - a super energetic action sports exhibition. This choreographed show is the first action sports tour of its kind. You will find BMX riders, skateboarders and freestyle Moto-X athletes taking the ramp simultaneously and doing crazy tricks, all while riding to live music by some of the world's most famous bands.

Over the past few years, the HuckJam tour performed at Six Flags Amusement Parks nationwide. The tour has even been featured on Super Bowl Sunday! Aside from Tony Hawk, some of the biggest Boom Boom HuckJam alumni include Shaun White, Carey Hart, Dave Mirra, Bucky Lasek, Bob Burquist and Andy Macdonald.

Features

This year, the HuckJam will hit up a variety of outdoor venues from stadiums to state fairs to amphitheaters. Once again, there is an A-list group of action sports stars that will be on tour this year. Skateboarders like Kevin Staab, Sergie Ventury, Neal Hendrix and Jesse Fritsch will be representing. Also on hand will be BMXers Kevin Robinson, John Parker and Dennis McCoy as well as Moto-X stars Drake McElroy, Greg Garrison and Matt Buyten. The tour will also feature the signature giant traveling Boom Boom HuckJam halfpipe, with Moto Ramps and Jumbotrons. Fans will be able to interact, win prizes and even be involved with the actual show. This year, the HuckJam will also feature video turntablist Mike Relm, a unique performer whose music and video show is truly cutting edge.

Where to Catch it

The Boom Boom HuckJam hits up 24 cities across the U.S. The tour starts on Friday, July 18 in San Antonio, TX and ends in Irvine, CA on Sunday, August 24. For more information about the Boom Boom HuckJam Tour visit www.boomboomhuckjam.com.

    I prefer hip-hop because you learn all the spins and things like that! I think that you get a lot more exercise doing hip-hop then ballet! ;)
