Tony Hawk fractures his leg but refuses to give up.
Tony Hawk has fractured his leg, which he concedes will have an impact on his skating career.
Hawk, who retired from professional skating in 2003, continues to skate on a regular basis. He announced his injuries on Instagram, stating he has a lengthy road to recovery.
Hawk said, with a snap of his X-ray and a video of himself on crutches: “Yesterday was a disaster. I shattered my elbow 20 years ago and was able to fully heal; however, the recovery from a broken femur will be considerably more difficult due to its severity (and my age). But I’m willing to take up the task.”

He went on to say: “It’s a funny irony that this occurred on the day of HBO releasing a teaser for Sam Jones’ documentary on my entire work, ‘Until The Wheels Fall Off,’ which focuses heavily on the philosophy of how I/we do this at our age. The answer is difficult, but it boils down to the fact that skating has given me a sense of purpose and formed my identity, and it greatly benefits my mental health.”
Hawk has said that he would continue to skate until he is physically unable to do so.
“Probably the toughest test of that faith will be a broken leg – with lots of hardware,” he added.
Despite the injuries, Hawk expressed confidence in his ability to return to skating, conceding that it may not be at full capacity, but that his age is starting to limit his boarding anyhow.
“I wouldn’t be here without my unwaveringly supporting, tolerant family – and all of you – for the love and support over the years; I wouldn’t be here without you,” Hawk closed his statement. “I’ll see you on the other side,” says the narrator.
