Tony Hawk Hossegor 2008

Andy MacDonald Hossegor 2008 - Main Event

The Quiksilver Pro France 2008 Hossegor started with the "Tony Hawk Ramp Skate Show", strange title but amazing show. Tony Hawk was joined by Jess Fritsch, Sergie Ventura, Andy MacDonald, Kevin Staab, and from Europe Pete King, Jürgen Horwarth and Sam Bosworth.

A practice session took place the day before the event, with Kelly Slater seen watching Tony Hawk skate - that's two of the Quiksilver Super Pro's in the same spot at the same time.

The main event went off in front of a huge crowd on 20th September 2008. I photographed the action from the press pit in front of the ramp - sadly I didn't make it onto the platform no press pass this year. For me Sam Bosworth was the star of the show.
