we're in Great Falls Montana there's a rather large skate park here from what I've read so we're gonna find out what end about for miles these kids are gonna lose their minds let me see Tony there's definitely something really special about showing up unannounced it's like you've just come in to ride I think the skateboarders appreciate that more than anything dange biggest places I feel like we're walking up to a Chucky Cheese or something that's saying we're not up here and you're down here that's saying we're all in this together yo what's up what's going on hey what's up and they know that they get that bond cuz really that's who we are anyway it's not like what would be a good marketing campaign you know oh let's just make ourselves look like we're regular guys and just show up and hang with the locals that'll be good press how is this place huh do you like it no man that's who we are that's where we're coming that's respect that's respect from from guys like myself that's respect from the skaters investigate and that's respect from Tony to everybody just showing a man that he's skateboard skateboard just like that next guy that all from the outside I was like what couldn't believe it how big it was probably one of the best parts that I've been to in my life kids are great they're like super sight they're like spazzing out I saw Tony everyone start walking up and then chaos just started breaking out you know I was just cruising a field a park out I heard every kid give me a your phone you've got to get down here there's pros you've got to just get down and shut up and get down here hello within like 10 minutes the crowd had doubled in another 15 minutes tripled and quadrupled it's fun to see that people start coming and realizing we're all there and how excited they are to be surprised like that our visit to Great Falls was the perfect example of what the secret skatepark tour is all about whenever open a skatepark I like to see if there's any sort of channel gaps the good one that I found there and Great Falls was in the form of a hole the only way to get to a frontside was to drop in on this like this Bank that wasn't level and you get one small pump it was probably like the fastest I ever had to set up for any sort of gap or trip the I just met Tony Hawk and maikelele Bay one song by the time we were sort of winding down or skating we were just chilling with the kids there you know literally just sitting on the ledges and talking about today so that was nice just because we don't always get to make those personal connections with kids then gap was awesome thanks miss really yes we had a serious crowd we have like small demo sized crowd so word travels fast in those small towns especially through the police our guys dealing with it you arrest people who saw a cop car like speed up like someone got killed or something they ran up to Sean and grabbed Sean Sean he's helping coordinate the tour put him in the car they had an agenda you know I mean they they wanted to start busting people because why because there's a crowd at the skate park is that so terrible it just seemed a little overzealous to me and all of a sudden the cops started picking out people that weren't wearing helmets and putting them in the car I mean come on did you put people who are excessively speeding in the car no but you're not wearing a helmet at the designated skate park area and it requires you to be detained in the back of the police Cooperstown is lucky to have they aren't even able to stay because these cops come in when you are a young person and Tony Hawk just came to your skate park and major day and then a cop comes up and shuts it down without any care about what's happening or any concern for who's involved it's ugly it's ugly and these are bad tastes and those kids will never forget it did you get all those cops with that and seriously have nothing better to do for cops in Great Falls Montana and that's the like the priority is to come to the skate park because the kids are wearing at home it's a great

    It’s a sign of the times. Kids are brought up to believe that the world is more dangerous than ever. So when they reach the age where they can become the police, your supervisor, or your boss. They follow every law and rule to the letter, without question or logic. If you ask them why, they tell you “because that’s just how it is”. I’ve never been a big subscriber to that philosophy.

    It's rare that I'll speak out against law enforcement. But this is definitely not good PR for the Department. I strongly encourage helmets but to be detained because you're not wearing one. Wow. I would like to see how the law reads. BS!

    Such horseshit. If there’s no victim there’s no crime, period. Same thing with a seatbelt law for riding in a car. It may seem petty and benign, but these sorts of laws are draconian and tyrannical. They give police officers an excuse to criminalize anyone they personally or the state has beef with. It is not the governments role to protect people from themselves. Sovereign individuals have every right to do what they wish, so long as it doesn’t harm anyone else. These cops are pigs.

    i guess they changed the rules since i used to ride there, i had my bike taken from me by a cop and was given an $80 trespassig fine and it took nearly 2 weeks to get my bike back after i paid the fine because the guy who was supposed to sing off on the paper that i had to release my bike turned me away every single day saying he didnt have time. totally doesnt surprise me that the cops came and hassled people. there was hardly a day i was at that park when the cops didnt come by just to yell at us

    The police blew a perfectly good opportunity to bond with the kids of the community! As a mature adult I am appalled!!! Those kids will NEVER forget this.

    Thanks for coming to Great Falls. I know just the other day, one of the members of Metallica showed up in Browning, MT to skate there. Random act of kindess for sure. I am not a skater, but my Dad was – I grew up around it. The biggest smile and the most happy I have ever seen him was always at a skate park. Thanks again, thanks for giving kids inspiration.
