The Starkey Hearing Foundation provides hearing-impaired people in developing countries with the hearing aids they need. Tony Hawk traveled to Johannesburg on its behalf; he brought Shawn Hale, David Loy, and South African skater, Thalente Biyela, with him.

They helped fit kids for hearing aids. And skaters being skaters, they couldn’t help themselves – they brought their skateboards, too. See what went down at the Skateistan Skatepark.

How can anyone hate the Birdman, he is such an ambassador for skateboarding and has done so much to give back to the community. Thank you, Birdman. You are a legend!
