This is Alby the coolest 13 year old skateboarding barn owl you will ever see! He lives at Folkestone Owl Rescue Centre, Kent.
Alby has developed a technique, which involves him swooping onto the board, using the momentum from his flight to push him along!
Folkestone Owl Sanctuary in charge, Brian Maxted, 73, observed Alby’s talent during a trip to the local shopping centre.
“I often take some owls into town to try and get some donations from shoppers,” the Telegraph quoted Maxted, as saying. “I had the owls out one day last week and a young lad stopped to look at them. He put down his skateboard and Alby, who’d been fast asleep, saw it and jumped on. Someone pulled it along the ground and he loved it so much, we had to get him one of his own.”
As the board comes to a stop, Alby takes off and flies in a small circle before re-landing on the board, pushing it along again.
Student Paul Lendon, 17, from Folkestone said: “I was stunned when I saw him riding along on his miniature board.
“I’m aware of the famous skateboarder Tony Hawk, but I’ve never before heard of Tony Owl.”

There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me. It’s because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way. This has caused my wife and kids pain and embarrassment beyond comprehension and I am extremely saddened to have brought this on them. I am truly very sorry for the grief I have caused them. I hope one day they can find it in their hearts to forgive me.”

Either way, this dude is just going to keep on truckin’.
