A Skateboarding Spectacle Like No Other

Hold onto your hats, folks, because Sky Brown, the teenage tornado of skateboarding, teamed up with TAG Heuer to unleash absolute mayhem on the River Thames! Yes, you heard that right – we’re talking about a floating half-pipe, two double-decker buses, and the backdrop of Tower Bridge. It’s like something out of a Hollywood blockbuster, but even better because it’s real!

So, picture this: a custom-built half-pipe, soaring over four meters high, perched precariously between two London buses. Oh, and did we mention it’s floating on the Thames? Because it is! If that doesn’t scream “epic,” then we don’t know what does.

Enter Sky Brown, the pint-sized powerhouse and TAG Heuer’s youngest Brand Ambassador. With more tricks up her sleeve than a magician at a birthday party, she took to the half-pipe like a duck to water. Or should we say, like a skateboarder to a floating ramp?

From gravity-defying flips to mind-bending spins, Sky wowed the crowd with her signature moves, including the legendary Japan Air. Seriously, watching her pull off those tricks while hovering above the Thames was enough to make your jaw drop faster than a skateboarder wiping out.



And let’s talk about her choice of timepiece – the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 Solargraph. Not only did it look sleeker than a freshly waxed skateboard, but it also withstood the extreme pressure of Sky’s insane stunts. Talk about a watch that’s built to last!

But the fun didn’t stop there. After the spectacle, TAG Heuer generously donated the half-pipe to Flo Skatepark in Nottingham, because why let the fun end when you can keep the good times rolling, right?

In true Sky Brown fashion, she summed up the experience with her trademark enthusiasm, saying, “I was hyped to get involved in this idea! Being able to share my passion for skateboarding with the public is something I love to do, and this is the perfect place and way to do it.”

And you know what? We couldn’t agree more. Because if there’s one thing this event proved, it’s that when you mix skateboarding, TAG Heuer, and a floating half-pipe, you get pure, awesomeness.
