Question 422: New age hippie?

THis picture denotes a spoof of a fairly well known painting. This painting has been modified in a style to make it akin to a term popularised in the 1980's, but soon faded away from the lexicon as did its resurgence in the 2000's, and the reason it is fading away remains the same.
The term itself has spawned off several of its own terms, popular in their own rights, and has entered the Oxford English dictionary, as well as the common man's lexicon.
What the term denotes, to quote a famous exponent of it, who's name is associated with a sport that was ironically, most popular in the 1980's, is "all that was vile in the 1980's".

Fairly obscure, but hopefully there are enough clues in the question as well as the picture

Question:
Id the term

Clue:
The term has 6 letters.
The person is Tony Hawk( who made the quote)
