SK8-TV is a program shown on Nickelodeon that began in 1990 and was originally hosted by Matthew Lillard (who went by the name Matthew Lynn at the time) and Skatemaster Tate. The set for the show was built on location at the Pink Motel in Sun Valley California which was famous for its large fish shaped pool that was ideal for skateboarding. It hosted a wide variety of skateboarders such as a young Tony Hawk and many others that went on to become famous and well known. It was directed by Stacy Peralta, who later went on to direct the retrospective documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys. It later resurfaced on the now-defunct Nick GAS channel in 1999 and aired until 2005.
