Either way, you'll possibly be doing a tailslide all the way home when you discover the King of all things skateboard, legendary Tony Hawk, (NO not the one with the fridge - that's a different Tony Hawk!) is coming to Brighton.
Tony Hawk and the Birdhouse team will be heading to Brighton on 21st July in a spectatcular finale to a European tour that takes in Berlin, Rome, Barcelona and yep, Brighton.
Taking place at the Old Paddling Pool, near the West Pier the event will open with a collection of the UK’s top vert skaters, including Quiksilver skater Sam Bosworth, winner of the X Games Ams (US).
Maximo Park and Christian Stevenson
They'll be some tunes too - on the mixing side, the British deck star, Christian Stevenson, whose passion for skateboarding is not a secret, will mix during the show.
A night of skate frenzy will be followed up with the headlining music act, Maxïmo Park. The Newcastle five-piece is amongst the UK’s most popular British Indie rock bands, with a Mercury nomination already under their belt.
