What is Tony Hawk’s bloodboard?

In August, Hawk teamed up with Liquid Death, the water company which claims to “murder your thirst,” to create 100 limited-edition skateboards.

These boards have been reported to be infused with Hawk’s actual blood and each will contain a vial’s worth of Hawk’s DNA, mixed in with the paint.

Hawk said in a press release: “I am deeply thankful to have a connection with my fans, and I appreciate how Liquid Death connects with theirs.

“This collaboration is taking those connections to a new level, as I have literally put my blood (and soul?) into these decks.” 

The limited-edition boards will be painted red and feature a graphic of a man whose head has been replaced with a can of Liquid Death. 

How much are Tony Hawk’s bloodboards being sold for?

The boards will retail at $500 each with a portion of the profits going to anti-plastic nonprofit 5 Gyres, and Hawk’s organization The Skateboard Project.

Following Hawk’s announcement, Lil Nas X, who outraged fans earlier in 2021 for releasing his “Satan Shoes,” which also contained human blood, was quick to point out the double standards.

On Wednesday, August 25, the rapper tweeted: “Now that Tony Hawk has released skateboards with his blood painted on them, and there was no public outrage, are y’all ready to admit y’all were never actually upset over the blood in the shoes? and maybe u were made for some other reason?”

Following his response, the comment has since generated over 35,000 likes and led to other’s commenting on other Instagram posts with the same phrase.

How can I buy a Tony Hawk bloodboard?

There are only 1000 of the limited edition skateboards, all of which sold out within 20 minutes of becoming available, according to a report by ESPN.

Each skateboard, which is screen-printed by hand in Southern California with a blood-infused graphic, also comes with a letter of authenticity.

Ten per cent of the proceeds from each board will go toward helping rid plastic from our oceans and build skateparks in communities.

The boards were being sold by Liquid Death.
