Oh man, is Justin Bieber better than Tony Hawk at skateboarding?!?

Well, no, but there's at least one thing Bieber can do with a deck that Hawk apparently can't: The inward hardflip. Speaking to TMZ Sports about new video game Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, Hawk mentioned that he'd seen Bieber skate before, and he happened to pull off the trick in front of him.

"I have seen him skate, actually," the Hawkman said. "You know what? He impressed me with an inward hardflip. It's a trick I've never been able to do in my life, and he pulled one right in front of me. I was like, 'All right, there it is.'"

The trick looks something like this, by the way:


Hawk is repping the release of Pro Skater 5, out later this month, one of the 11 games we're most psyched about this fall. Lil Wayne is a playable character; he also shredded on the game with Hawk and Conan O'Brien the other day. You've been informed. Go forth and shred. Sadly Goldfinger's not on the soundtrack, despite all that early sound advice we gave Activision.
