Given the amount of people that have actually tried out the new Hendo hoverboard, the 'world's worst' title might just be going to Tony Hawk.

Whilst Tony Hawk is a skateboarding legend, it seems that his well-honed skills on the ramps were not transferable unto the unexplored world of the hoverboard, as proved by his test run of the Hendo prototype just yesterday.

His attempt clearly wasn't a patch on second man on the moon Buzz Aldrin's go earlier this month.


Okay, it was a bit better, but not that much. Because, he fell over... a lot.





Three times.


Just to be clear, it is **this** same Tony Hawk we're talking about.


Yes, this one.


To be fair, he did eventually get the hang of it though.


We'll see you on the track, Hawk.
