On the 20th and 21st of November, skateboarding came to the Grand Palais. Thanks to Quiksilver, one of the most iconic cultural and historic sites of Paris welcomed for the first time ever, Tony Hawk, the global icon of skateboarding, accompanied by the world's best vert ramp specialists. Together, they put on a show that will go down in skateboarding history.
On the biggest vert ramp ever built in Europe beneath the vast glass ceiling of the Grand Palais, Tony Hawk, Andy MacDonald, Sandro Dias, Jean Postec, Kevin Staab, Jesse Fritsch, Sergie Ventura and Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins sent shivers down the spines of the 5500 privileged spectators lucky enough to be there.
On Saturday 21 November, 22.30, during the Quiksilver Tony Hawk Show, the vault of the Grand Palais will vibrate to the great sound of Dead By Sunrise.
For the first time in Europe since the release of their first album, Chester Bennington's new group (Linkin Park's front man) will appear in the heart of Paris, in an exceptional setting with, as a backdrop, the biggest skate ramp in Europe and the legendary Tony Hawk.
At the Tony Hawk Show, Quiksilver will create an immense street park covering a surface area of 1200m2, with no fewer than 10 obstacles.
The street course is inspired by real spots: the blocks from Paris Bercy and Universitad Marble bench line...
