Tony Hawk Lands His Last 900

And it's still just as impressive.

  • Even if you don’t know sports, or skateboarding, you know the name Tony Hawk. Actually, he’s probably the only pro-skateboarder most people can name, and there’s a reason for that. He’s incredibly good at what he does.

    Seventeen years ago, he became the first person to land a 900 at the Summer X Games — that’s two and a half revolutions in an aerial spin on a skateboard ramp, sticking the landing of course. Now, at 48, without the fanfare of an actual competition, he took on the task of completing what he’s deemed his final 900. The video shows a number of failed attempts, but the moment of triumph when he manages to land it, 17 years to the day after his first legendary 900, is worth the wait.
