Skateboard legend Tony Hawk has retired from competition, but he still performs with his traveling Boom Boom HuckJam, which arrives on Wednesday at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa.
The show, featuring skateboarding, BMX and motocross, takes place on a $1-million ramp system, which includes a huge half-pipe circled by a motocross track so riders can launch over the skate ramp.
Hawk and the big-name skateboarders who come with him are all in their 30s, still living out their slacker dreams and raking in tons of money along the way.
The Boom Boom HuckJam hits Tampa at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 to $85. The McDonald's/POWERade Street Corner Village, with games, demonstrations and appearances by BMX star Dennis McCoy and freestyle motocross rider Dustin Miller, opens at 4:30 p.m. 813 301-2500 or Ticketmaster; www.BoomBoomHuckJam.com
