The sad truth is that we are all getting older, including skateboarding legends like the one and only Tony Hawk.  Hawk was skating during  a Quiksilver demo on Saturday and did not nail the landing.   He instead nailed his pelvis.

Hawk tweeted about the fall shortly after the event. “Did a tailbone 5 & my foot was a little off, sent me into b/s revert (chicken-neck) to flat. Hit my back & head HARD. Waiting for CT results.”

As a follow-up tweet from Hawk revealed, those results came back and with a diagnosis of his injury as a ‘pelvic vertical shear injury’. I’ve never heard of such a thing, but I bet it hurts.  A lot. Also hurting a lot? Getting power bombed in an MMA fight.  Or hit with a line drive, foul ball from your own teammate.

Over the years Hawk has suffered much worse. He’ll be fine and back out thrilling crowds in no time.
