Ever wanted to ride a skateboard with Tony Hawk‘s blood INSIDE of it?!
You’re in luck … ’cause the skate legend has just released a line of boards that have a vial of his blood infused into the decks’ paint jobs!!!
The 53-year-old skater teamed up with Liquid Death, a canned water company, to make the rides … and they’re gnarly.
Liquid Death documented how they were made in a video released Tuesday … showing how Hawk’s blood was drawn from his arm and eventually poured into the red paint that was used for the skateboards’ graphics scheme.
Liquid Death says the boards — which feature the company’s “It’s the Thirst Executioner” character holding a hawk skull and a bloody ax — are limited to a quantity of just 100 … and are currently selling for $500 apiece.
The water co. adds that each ride will come with a certificate of authenticity … and Hawk says he’s in love with it all.
“I am deeply thankful to have a connection with my fans, and I appreciate how Liquid Death connects with theirs,” said Hawk, who added that he just recently became an ambassador for the water company.
“This collaboration is taking those connections to a new level, as I have literally put my blood (and soul?) into these decks.”
Hawk continued, “And I take pride in knowing that organizations fighting plastic pollution and creating skate parks worldwide will be supported through our efforts.”
Hawk says a percentage of the proceeds from the rides will go to Hawk’s The Skatepark Project as well as 5 Gyres, an environmental nonprofit organization.
