Tony Hawk is an icon in the skateboarding community. Earlier this week, the 53-year old was involved in a skateboarding accident and broke his leg in the process. Now, he seems to doing better while going out and about.
Tony walked the red carpet of of his HBO documentary unassisted at the 2022 SXSW Conference and Festival just days after snapping his femur. While attending the premiere of Until the Wheels Fall Off in Austin on Friday night, the athlete rocked a black jacket, jeans and a pair of Vans sneakers.
Tony showed no signs of pain from the break. He was seen chatting it up with executive producers Mel Eslyn and Mark Duplass as well as director Sam Jones. Fans are certainly happy to see their beloved skateboarder in recovery.
Earlier this week, he shared the news that he broke his leg and posted a series of photos of his recovery that included X-rays of his leg injury. On Monday, the athlete also reflected on breaking his elbow 20 years ago as he said, “this recovery for a broken femur will be much harder because of its severity (and my age).”
You can check out the pictures from the red carpet event below. Stay tuned to Thirsty for future updates.
