Tony Hawk Lands 900 At 48!

Alright, today is June 27th, 2016 and it is 17 years to the date that I landed my first 900 at the X Games in San Francisco. A lot has happened since then in my life. I mean, it’s been the craziest roller-coaster ride, and it really was the apex of my competitive career and so I’m going to try a 900 today. Because I feel like I can, and uh, I never thought I’d be doing this at my age when I was young. I really didn’t think that was a possibility, but I’m still going and I’ll keep going until the wheels fall off I guess. (chuckles) *expletive* Spencer was there on my first one, now he was on my last. Bye. *Outro music playing*

  1. even in video games i remember doing 900 in Tony Hawk playstation games an shtt was hard to pull out perfect 900 each time

  2. I admire tony so much. He didn’t have to do this but props to him for wanting to and a big congrats.

    Also, he shouldn’t be driving after taking slamming hits to his head I mean helmet or not, that’s got to fuck you right up……..

  3. And that's why he is the best their ever will be in skateboarding history…. the fact that he came back and did this in his later years…. awesome job Tony…. proud of you man….

  4. For someone who skated that long it must be difficult to get the lift and brace for his knees. I bet that's why he's so frustrated because he knows he has the skill but his body is slowly falling him. Legendary stuff

  5. I am 48. I started skating as a 13yr old, watching Tony lead the Powell team in the mid 80s. He was then, and is now, a living legend.
    I'll still jump on a board here and there and go for a casual rip. That's about it these days.
    To be 48 and still able to stick a 900 just is a…🤯er.
    He has been so consistent his entire life. That's what puts Tony in a league of his own.

  6. imma be honest he might as well come back to skating cause nobody can do that shit on a bad day like he can tbh. on a good day i bet he would fucking slam that shit tony hawk a fucking beast imma be honest.

  7. Mean while your average 48 year old man is too lazy to get up and grab a beer. Motivation for all you guys complaining that you're too old to do anything 🙂

  8. A thing young people can't imagine is the fact that when you are 48 you get tired very quickly. That's a pain in the ass, really ^^
