We get a lot of requests to make another surfing video game like the one we made years ago cleverly called “TransWorld SURF”. And it appears that now, Tony Hawk feels the same way about bringing surfing back to the vidiots. I liked our game and always felt that a game that meshed ours with “Kelly Slater: Pro Surfer” would be a hit. Anyway, we’ll keep you posted on the efforts…

In an interview with GameSpot, skating legend and video game staple Tony Hawk has spoken fondly, and none-too-subtly, of his wishes to see another Kelly Slater’s Pro Surfer game. Using the Tony Hawk: Ride controller, of course.
Chatting about what comes next for the expensive peripheral, Hawk says “I think that the first priority, beyond skateboarding, would be snowboarding because that would lend itself [to the board] a little bit easier [than other genres], and beyond that I’d love to do a surfing game. I always thought that Kelly Slater’s [Pro Surfer] was an underrated title for the PlayStation 2. I thought that people didn’t really give it the attention it deserved.”
