Bam Margera is out of rehab and catching up with old mates in a heavenly reunion anyone who used to own a pair of Etnies is sure to swoon over.
Be still, my beating inner-emo kid’s black heart.
Tony Hawk, pro skater, met up with Bam in Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia, recently and the nostalgia is strong in the comments section.
Hawk shared a picture of his reunion with the MTV professional prankster, who made his name alongside Jonny Knoxville, Steve-o, Chris Pontius, and the late, great Ryan Dunn, as part of the CKY and Jackass franchises.
Hawk captioned the picture of the little get-together with his usual lightly jesting manner:
So fun to catch up with this Jackass.
One person, trapped in a time-warp, asked ‘Holy moly, what year is it? This is like… My teenage years watching MTV.’
Another confused commentator, unsure about the exact position in which the pair were placed, said, ‘Two legends standing or sitting right there’ and added Bam and Hawk are ‘the two who changed and made my life a lot better.’
A third added: “Legends, heroes of mine growing up, both u guys!”
Bam and Hawk go way back, having met through the professional skating community they both helped to build and bring to the mainstream.
Hawk even invited Margera to make an appearance in the third instalment of his Pro Skater gaming franchise.
But the reunion is particularly sweet to see since it marks Margera’s exit from rehab, after a longstanding battle with alcohol and drug addiction.
The CKY vet checked into rehab for the fourth time, sharing a heartfelt letter with fans at the start of this year, saying he was more determined than ever to end his decade-long destructive relationship with alcohol in the brave – and charmingly funny – note.
He called us all ‘cocksuckers’, too, true-to-form:
Posting a photograph of the candid letter to Instagram, Margera explained:
I have spent enough time grieving over Ryan Dunn through alcohol. I’m 39 years old, the party is over. I don’t plan on drinking anymore.
I have wasted too much time at the bar and all my friends who needed decades of help are now sober. I would like to join the sober parade.

I recently had the privilege to shoot with the legendary @antoncorbijn4real in connection with the @tonyhawksignatureline launch. The photos are being released tonight at Paris Fashion Week alongside the apparel collection preview (available to retailers worldwide mid 2019).
Tony Hawk, now 50, has famously mentored a lot of young skaters through the peaks and troughs of the public and professional life which comes along with skating superstardom, and now helps underprivileged kids in America through his charitable foundation.
Viva La Bam!
