Tony Hawk skateboards through Badlands in western South Dakota

Legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk shredded through the Badlands — and snubbed the rules — while visiting the national park with his family on Sunday.


“Driving through Badlands with my family, no other cars in sight. Saw a downhill section and stopped so I can skate it,” Hawk wrote on Twitter.


The 52-year-old then casually cruised down a section of smooth pavement next to the Badlands’ unique rock formations, according to a short video clip he posted.
