Tony Hawk Demos That Real Hoverboard That's Coming

November 17, 2014

This is a video of Tony Hawk and Dave Carnie demoing that real Hendo Hoverboard that's coming out. I still have beef with Tony Hawk though because he's one of the people responsible (including Doc Brown himself!) for that other hoverboard commercial that was so obviously fake it blew my mind that every single idiot I know on Facebook thought it was real. I've since deleted all those old, stupid friends and made new ones. So far it's just me and the three fake accounts I use to interact with myself so I don't feel lonely, but I feel like 2015 is going to be a big year for new friendships. And I'm not just saying that because of the fortune cookie I got last night, because that shit read, "There's no such thing as an ordinary cat." Oh like hell there isn't! Tons of my friends have them. Obviously, I angrily demanded another cookie, which they refused, and I stormed out of there so angry I forgot my chow mein leftovers. My fortune should have just read, "You'll be skipping breakfast and lunch tomorrow."

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to dr venkman, who splits his time between developing hoverboards and new, safer ghost containment units.

    At the 0:40 point: "... this can make a serious difference in solving a lot of serious problems..."

    am i mishearing him or unable to see the bigger picture? "you're misquoting!" How? "hes actually talking about 'solving a lot of serious problems... with his personal financial situation'"

    Still does not work on water...

    I pee'd a little.

  • Kane Harrison

    So, it's a small hovercraft with no propulsion or steering that can only be used on a specific surface. People are gonna buy this POS?

  • dougfunnay

    Dude theyre only $10,000 the better question is how can people afford to NOT buy this POS.

  • Tyguy

    I don't understand why people don't get that this thing can't steer. It's over-hyped.

  • shashi

    Do not worry, anyone with the ability to use their brain will realise the lack of control in this current model when they see (world famous professional skater) Tony Hawk absolutely not skating it and instead flailing around like a blancmange on a lazy susan.

  • Tyguy

    Haha

  • Fred

    The wheel must have seemed pretty over hyped too until someone stuck four of them together...

  • Tyguy

    Really? Did you really just comment that?

  • TheQiwiMan

    "Yeah, yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they SHOULD!"

  • o0THX11380o

    And now you're selling it YOU'RE SELLING IT!

  • shashi

    @theqiwiman:disqus " I think things are a little bit different then you and I had feared..."

  • Benmark

    Oh, they definitely should.
