The Kid Should See This

Tony Hawk goes for the 900 at 48 years old (Bleep included.)

Exactly seventeen years after he became the first skateboarder to land a 900 — “a 2½-revolution (900 degrees) aerial spin performed on a skateboard ramp” — skateboard legend Tony Hawk attempts to land a 900 at age 48. Watch his attempts via this RIDE Channel vid. Please note: There’s one well-earned bleep.

And below at the 2m5s mark: Hawk lands the 900 on June 27, 1999.
