OFF THE WALL

Skateboarding pros (and Tony Hawk's kid) come out for the big money

Started in Orange County in 2008, the Maloof Money Cup came to New York City for the first time last year. Building a killer street course in Flushing Meadows, the tournament's founders Joe and Gavin Maloof (whose family owns the Sacramento Kings) donated the course to the city. And today they're back for a second year, with more than $450,000 in prize money at stake. This is a rare chance to see gravity-defying moves from pro skaters, such as Chris Cole (who is very close to winning the cup's $1 million bonus prize for the skater who can win four Money Cup events in a row), as well as some very talented amateur street skaters, including Riley Hawk (the 18-year-old son of the legendary Tony).
