Legendary Skater Tony Hawk (And Many Others) Joins Rapture Bomb Armageddon


So, the world didn't end. Sort of anticlimactic, no? But the apocalyptic letdown didn't stop you guys from pulling off some
fantastic rapture bombs.
We've got another batch of our favorite bombs—plus super grindmaster
Tony Hawk rapturing himself.

Hawk's adorable daughter doesn't seem too thrilled that her dad got sucked up to the great half pipe in the sky.

As always, keep 'em coming! The world didn't end, and neither should the #rapturebomb barrage.
