Get ready, Mumbai! Tony Hawk, the legendary skateboarding star is coming to town and will will be heading to Mumbai in December 2011 for the first ever skateboarding demo in the country. Tony is the brand ambassador for Quiksilver – the iconic clothing and accessories brand – and they are doing the honours by bringing him to our shores.

Quiksilver is the world’s leading outdoor sports lifestyle company, which designs, produces and distributes a diversified mix of branded apparel, footwear, accessories, snowboards and related products.  The company’s apparel and footwear brands represent a casual lifestyle for young-minded people that connect with its board-riding culture and heritage.

The reputation of Quiksilver’s brands is based on outdoor action sports.  The company’s Quiksilver, Roxy, DC, Lib Tech and Hawk brands are synonymous with the heritage and culture of surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding

Accompanying Tony Hawk will be some of the best ramp riders such as Kevin Staab, Andy MacDonald, Sam Bosworth and young prodigy Mitchie Brusco. They will defy the laws of gravity on a monumental vert ramp (450mts. high, 19mts. wide and 18mts. deep) shaped by G Ramps. The massive half pipe will be settled by Quiksilver for one single show scheduled on December 3rd at the school grounds behind Dhirubhai Ambani International School at Bandra-Kurla Complex in Mumbai.

Hosting The Tony Hawk & Friends Show in Mumbai gives Quiksilver a unique and sensational opportunity to celebrate the launch of the brand in India and the recent openings of the first 3 stores in the country in a 5 months period.

Last September (2010), Tony Hawk made a rare exhibition for the Quiksilver Pro New York opening with an unprecedented vert demo held in Manhattan. The upcoming Mumbai show promises to be one of the most spectacular and unusual of the skateboarding Master.

The British deck star is a man of many talents.
