The game box for the 11th game in the main series of the Tony Hawk video game series.

Tony Hawk: Shred is the eleventh installment in the Tony Hawk series of video games. It is the successor to Tony Hawk: Ride, a peripheral-based, motion controlled skateboarding game.

Shred introduces a snowboarding mode to the series as well as "Avatar" and "Miis" supports on the Xbox 360 and Wii versions respectively. A "surfing" mode was worked on for the game, but was soon scrapped due to funds and short amount of time to work on it.

The initial price for the game was $120 for a bundle including the skateboard controller and approximately $50 for the stand-alone game. During its first week on sale in the United States, the game sold 3,000 copies; combined with the negative reception, the Tony Hawk franchise was put on hold.

In December 2011, Tony Hawk himself made it official at the 2011 Spike Video Game Awards that the series would return in 2012 with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD.
