Tony Hawk Jumps Ship

Tony Hawk Jumps Ship… well not really. A few weeks ago I posted how excited I was that Tony Hawk was going to participate at the Quiksilver Pro. He still is, but not in Long Beach. At the time I wrote the article,  I took this image off the Quiksilver Pro website which, in a way, made it seem like he would be here:

With the event less than a month away, Quiksilver gave us a full schedule with more details. As already mentioned on this blog in the article: Quiksilver Pro Concert Schedule Online, Shaun writes:

And the sports demos: note that the Tony Hawk Vert Jam will be in NYC, not Long Beach.  This continues to support the concept that its the Quiksilver Pro New York, not the Quiksilver Pro Long Beach, and events will take place as much in Manhattan as here.

I just wanted to make it clear that he wasn’t going to be here… of course after I told everybody I know that he would be….

*****For all you keen-eyed observers out there: Yes, that boat is the S.S. Minnow from Gilligan’s Island. Am I suggesting that Long Beach and Surfpocalypse are on a crash course? Oh… how dare you!!
