Tony Hawk Skateboard Giveaway

by The Editors on March 31, 2009

4444644.JpgAbout an hour and a half ago (9:30 AM) Carlsbadistan-based pro skateboarder Tony Hawk Twittered a little message to his 200k followers: “Whatup Twit-talkers! I have a couple of complete skateboards to give away today. Stay tuned.”

Then at 10 AM he posted notes to the location of the first drop. It was on Palomar Oaks Way just south of Palomar Airport Rd. for the kids in the 760.

Sadly, we missed the Tweet by by 10:50 AM there was already a winner. It was Carlsbadistan’s KT Alch who said the location was “Right down the street from my office.”

Let the Twitter scavenger meme begin. . .and follow Tony because he says he’s got more skateboards to give away.
