Tony Hawk Lands The 900 At 48 Years Old

Once again proving he's superhuman

Exactly 17 years since he landed the very first 900-degree spin on a skateboard, Tony Hawk has done it for the final time – at the age of 48. The vert maestro pulled off his most recent 900 back in 2011, and had long claimed that it was his final one – and who could blame him – but at almost 50 years of age, the Birdman had one more up his sleeve.

While the slams are brutal and draining, Tony was always going to land this. This is dedication, determination, and mental toughness at its absolute best. This is a legend. Hit play and watch it go down in all its glory.
