Bonjour de Paris! We are in the City of Lights for the Quiksilver 40th Anniversary celebration… this is one of the most surreal experiences that the Stylesight active team has ever had the opportunity to be a part of. The Tony Hawk Show at the Grand Palais is truly going to be the most epic skateboarding event in the history of action sports… yes, we said it — the entire history of action sports — If you are not familiar with the Grand Palais aka the “Big Palace”, it is a large glass exhibition hall that was built in 1900, located in the 8th arrondissement in Paris. No big deal. We won’t give away too many details, but we can tell you that Quiksilver built a massive indoor vert ramp and street course that Tony and his team will be shredding on all day and night. Stay tuned for a full report next week… Heureux de la planche à roulettes!
