Tony Hawk Does A '900' At Age 48 Because He's Still The Man

Is this his last?

Watch Tony Hawk repeat history.

The skateboard great caused quite a stir when he completed a "900" at the 1999 X Games. The 2.5-revolution (900 degrees) aerial trick off a ramp was considered skateboarding's "Holy Grail" at the time, ESPN wrote.

In a nod to his feat, Hawk, now 48 years old, attempted another 900 on Monday, 17 years to the day of his original.

In the new video, the legend experiences trial-and-ouch before finally landing the big one. He throws off his helmet and pads in celebration, hugs his son Spencer, then basically says it's his last 900.

Say it ain't so, Tony.
