Forget the streets!! A couple of skateboarders took their talents to an airport … doing insane moves all over the vacant lot — just like a Tony Hawk video game!!
It all went down in New Orleans, Louisiana — where Red Bull Skateboarding hosted its “Terminal Takeover” event and turned the empty Louis Armstrong Airport into a skate sesh.
Just like in Tony Hawk Pro Skater, the athletes had to pull off some dope tricks to gain points — including flips, board slides, 360s, aerials, and grinds — to unlock the next level.
Rising stars Jake Wooten and Vincent Matheron were up for the challenge … ripping through the airport’s terminal, baggage claim, sitting area and ticker counter.
Skaters Alex Sorgente and Devin Flynn even launched out of the jetway tunnel right onto a ramp on the open and active airstrip.
“Getting to live a video game fantasy I have had my entire life is special,” Wooten said. “So, thank you to everyone who was involved in any way this year.”
Kareem Campbell — skateboard star who’s known for his “Ghetto Bird” trick — was also out there reppin’ … just like the Tony Hawk video game he’s featured in.
