Just when we thought we saw the last of Hawk this year at the Olympics, the American made headlines once more with an interesting new Skateboard model. In a collaboration with water company Liquid Death, Hawk actually agreed to have a part of him in the board works.

The icon donated a vial of his blood to be mixed with the paint which was used to make these special edition skateboards! Liquid heat confirmed the same by showing the process of injecting the blood from Hawk’s arm and using it with the paint of the board.

The fact that so many of these skateboards will be open for purchase leaves many baffled as to how much of Tony Hawk they will actually be getting. Surely a mere vial can’t find its way on everyone’s skateboard? 

Although every board won’t satisfy vampiric desires of having a vile full of Hawk’s blood used in the paint, a rep from Liquid Death has assured fans that every board, selling at $500 apiece, will have a part of Hawk’s DNA in them. There are only 100 of these boards on sale, making them an extremely rare and valuable set.

“I am deeply thankful to have a connection with my fans, and I appreciate how Liquid Death connects with theirs,” Hawk said, completely on board with the idea. “This collaboration is taking those connections to a new level, as I have literally put my blood (and soul?) into these decks.”
