It all went down -- hard -- during a skate demonstration at the Action Sports Weekend event at Downtown Disney's Main Plaza in Anaheim, CA -- where Tony attempted to land a 540 ... and failed.

Tony was forced to roll on over to the UC Irvine Trauma Center, where according to Tony's blog, he was treated for a sheared pelvis and hematoma.

Tony has since Tweeted, "I will no longer take walking for granted."

So I actually interviewed Tony about 30 minutes before this crash. And I specifically asked him about saftey...which clearly made him uncomfortable...and he said...well, you can watch the video here. If you want...

Sheared off. If the definition means it was cut off then it's proper. If he just scraped it badly, then that's a better example.

Either way, I am sure it's very uncomfortable.

Too old? Hardly. Three days before this he did a 900 in front of 25,000 people in Barcelona. If you don't know skateboarding, a 900 is the trick that made him more famous and only 3 other people have ever done them. At 42 Tony is still one of the best skaters in the world. More likely the reason he fell was just that he was exhausted from being in Europe for 2 weeks and was jet lagged one day later. The man can still skate.

That sucks for Tony he needs to retire anyway.

TMZ PLEASE get some F*king moderators for your forums, I am sick and tired of these BS advertisements for dating or neo-fascist conservative douche bags. All you guys have to do is add a little bar at the bottom to flag something as abuse like ALL websites have. Thanks.

as he is a multi-millionnaire, I would say it's more than just a hobby.
