Tony Hawk on his skateboarding success: I didn’t rest on my accolades
Tony Hawk on Giving Tuesday
Skateboarding icon Tony Hawk is partnering with Hot Wheels to release a new line of skateboards for kids to ride with their fingers instead of their feet.
A "fingerboard" allows kids to simulate their favorite tricks using their middle and index fingers via a mini skateboard. The Mattel-owned scale model car company's emergence into the fingerboard market will directly compete with X-Concept's Tech Deck fingerboards which have made the products since the 1990s.
The new skate line called "Hot Wheels Skate" is set to release in early August. Hawk's fingerboards will be sold exclusively at Walmart and will come with play sets, ramps, and skateboard features.
"I’m excited to finally introduce this epic new line of fingerboards in collaboration with Hot Wheels," Hawk said in a statement provided to Fox News Digital. "These products were created for Fingerboarders of all experience levels to master tricks, working their way up from a kickflip to creating their own cool, never been done, combinations."
