Today in Huntington Beach, skate icon Tony Hawk will come out of retirement to reignite his rivalry with longtime peer Christian Hosoi.
The two will join fellow skate legend Lance Mountain alongside side young rippers Tom Remillard (who placed 2nd last year), Kalani David, Ben Hatchell, Robbie Russo, Curren Caples, Kevin Kowalski, Pedro Barros, Div Adams, Kyle Berard, Ben Raybourn, Josh Mattson and Andrew Langi as they compete for the Coastal Carnage title.
We were on site for the qualifiers yesterday and captured photos of the likes of Eric Koston, Kenny Anderson, Rune Glifberg and a barefoot Sammy Baca. Enjoy.
You can watch the competition live on Fuel TV today starting at 4PM PST.
