All of the proceeds raised will go to his non-profit organization Skatepark Project.
With the help of Melbourne-based custom vinyl factory Small Run, The Avalanches have pressed a limited edition run of their latest single “Reflecting Light.”
Only 12 copies of the 7-inch exist and Hawk happens to own one of them. Some fans might even notice the X-Ray scan on the vinyl from when Hawk dislocated his fingers in June.
“In a tribute to the ‘bone records’ of the 1950’s Soviet era, (where banned western records were cut onto X-Ray film and smuggled into the USSR to avoid authorities) we’ve come together with the one and only @tonyhawk for a unique one off pressing.”

Just received my x-rays from Saturday’s debacle. They had to cut my ring off before returning my bones to their full upright and locked position. My fingers are still sore / stiff / swollen but mostly functional. And I still love my job. 💀🤘🏽 #duskydigits #bruisedbonesbrigade
