Skateboarding legend and familiar-looking guy Tony Hawk has partnered with Hot Wheels on their first ever fingerboard line. It's called Hot Wheels Skate, and the collection includes a wide range of fingerboards and fun skatepark playsets that will include elements like giant piranhas, roller coasters and donuts. The fingerboards even include little shoes for your fingers, which seems ridiculous but it will actually help beginners pull off some more complex tricks since they clip onto the board.
That said, Hot Wheels notes that their focus with the Skate line is to put a more imaginative spin on fingerboarding, as opposed to companies like Tech Deck that focus on reproductions of real-life skateboards and ramps. If that sounds good to you, Tony Hawk's Hot Wheels Skate lineup is exclusive to Walmart, and you can check out a breakdown of the fingerboards and skateparks that are currently available to pre-order in the collection below:
