Bid on Paul’s ‘Blackbird’ Skateboard
Paul is one of many notable musicians who have personalised skateboards which are now up for auction to raise money for the Tony Hawk Foundation charity. The foundation supports recreational programs with a focus on the creation of public skateboard parks in low-income communities.
The auction is part of the Tony Hawk Foundation’s Boards+Bands program where a select group of professional skateboarders were invited to donate their personally ridden skateboards and submit the name of their favourite songs. Their boards were then sent to their favourite musicians with one simple message: “Please write the lyrics to my favourite song on this skateboard, and we’ll use it to create more skateparks for kids.”
Paul, Tom Petty, Ben Harper, Bob Dylan, Jimmy Cliff, Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys, and James Hetfield of Metallica have all hand-written the lyrics on these one-of-a-kind skateboards, which will be auctioned on eBay to benefit the Tony Hawk Foundation.
Fans can bid on Paul’s skateboard HERE! The auction closes on 13th December.
