Red Bull transformed an empty airport in New Orleans into a real-life version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 with Kareem Cambell, Jake Wooten, and more. These professional skateboarders zipped across ticketing counters, baggage claims, open concourses, and even an active tarmac in NoLa. This abandoned terminal of Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport was designed by Goldstein Parham & Labouisse and originally opened in 1959.
This terminal is a dream for skateboarders as it consists of two sections, East and West, connected by a central ticketing alley. Four concourses, A, B, C and D, are also attached to the terminal, complete with a total of 47 gates. There is a vaulted arrivals lounge at the head of Concourse C and the adjacent, western half of the ticketing alley are actually a part of the remaining portions of the airport’s 1959 terminal complex. These professional skateboarders would definitely have a ball at Beijing’s new Daxing International Airport.

Skate anything you want to in the room, really get creative in there. We are trying to spread out across the whole delta region. I would like to see a real skate park in New Orleans,” said Wooten.
