Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk has been making some interesting moves within the past couple of months. On January 14, Independent Trucks announced that Hawk had re-signed with the Indy team after more than 30 years of separation. Tony’s first truck sponsor was, in fact, Independent, before he became the figure who rolled Tracker trucks into the spotlight. After the Birdman left Tracker in November of 1998, he went on to help start up Fury Trucks. 10 years later, Hawk went on to join his most recent truck sponsor, Theeve. Today, Hawk is back on his original team, Independent Trucks. We’re guessing he’ll stay there for a while now, seeing that his son Riley Hawk is also riding for Independent as well. To add to the excitement, Hawk also made the switch from Birdhouse Wheels (formed by Hawk and Per Welinder in 1992) to Bones Wheels on November 9th, 2012. On November 13th, Bones Wheels made a second announcement that legendary freestyle skater Rodney Mullen had also joined the team. Talk about epic moves. We’re excited to see what happens in the future with the new teams. Bones Wheels has already released awesome new Pro Models for both Mullen and Hawk. We just got a new shipment of them in so feel free to check out our website for new products and details!
