America has many freedoms and challenges, some of those challenges are getting kids out of the streets, away from gangs and drugs and ensuring they become a prosperous adult of themselves. How does society deal with such issues and who stands up for those less fortunate? Well Tony Hawk and Ben Harper, two greatest talents decided to take a challenge and fund skateparks all over the nation.

With this issua at hand, Tony Hawk and Ben Harper joined their talents and came up with their idea of Boards + Bands- a concept so amazing that we decided to sit with Tony Hawk and Ben Harper them selves to tell us all about it. A casual preess conference turned into a great eye opening night, with one message spread across the room: build skateboard parks to change the course of endangered teenagers. This message was loud and clear and who else to voice it better than a professional skater and talented musician, Tony Hawk and Ben Harper, their goal is to auction skateboards and use that money to fund parks.

Ofcourse they are not just any skateboards, these boards contain famous songs written on them by famous artists like Ozzy Osbourne’s “Fairies Wear Boot” which is Riley Hawk’s favorite song. Owning a skateboard with those inscriptions on it is pricesless, but the outcome is irremarkable and very rewarding to low income communities.  imageCheck out Tony’s Foundation and go bet on one of those special skateboards. We did Ask Tony Hawk if there would be any Slayer songs in his upcoming Tony Hawk Video game and sadly that is not in the playlist but stay tune for the Video Game Release. Check out this sites for more info and reviews.
