Tony Hawk?s Gigantic Skatepark Tour 2002.

"What a great collection of shows and extras! This series aired on ESPN in the latter half of 2002 and if you missed it, now is your chance to get it. Some of the highlights that stand out in my mind include Kerry Getz, Eric Koston, and Willy Santos getting SUPER tech all over the place; Mike V. destroying himself to pull off the gnarly stuff; Tony Hawk, Bob Burnquist, Bucky Lasek, and Shaun White just killin' it on vert. Basically, everyone on this tour rocks. Too many riders, tricks, locations, and situations to exhaustively list right here, so buy the DVD and check it all out for yourself!Some of the more interesting extras that were never aired include Tony getting kidnapped by the B-team; Getz and Chalmers tearing up the real streets of St. Paul, MN; Kris Markovich and Sal Masekela getting ready to throw some blows after someone put something in someone's drink; and Bam's gruesome trip to the dentist (hey can I have that tooth?).The current DVD format has more options compared to the 2000 and 2001 discs. You can now play all shows consecutively instead of just one at a time. You can also pick individual shows and navigate to specific tour stops therein. It is interesting that some of the original music in certain segments has been changed. I've always felt that skateboarding and video making are works of art and this kinda sets a different tone/mood when watching parts that I am thoroughly familiar with. Also, the "Best Of" segments, where the boyz are reminiscing about the tour, are not included. Anyhow, if you have the series taped as aired (and are cultish on anything and everything Hawk), you might want to hold on to those cassettes even after getting this DVD.Sadly, this is probably the last of the "Gigantic Skatepark Tour" series, however, I do believe that the 2003 "Secret Skatepark Tour" will be coming to DVD soon. Check out Tony's website for details."
Pretty good, but...

"The 2001 is better in My Opinion, 2001 has better/more skateparks/screwing around, although there are more skaters in this one, not as much skating. A must have to complete the series though, this was the last one they made :(-Leo"

"If you have seen the previous two then this is a must,..even if you haven't this is great! Tons of killer skate footage and behind the scenes stuff. All the best are back and then some. Mike V., Bam, Bob, Riley, Sal, Rob, Mirra, Rooftop, Shaun White and so many others. Hell they end up with two buses full of pro's. There is so much footage that is take a few times of seeing it to get it all in. The bonus footage is great as well-(poor Shaun White gets a huge payback). Outstanding DVD!"
