After a few failed attempts, Hawk finally hit the trick at an indoor halfpipe to the applause of those watching.
“I never thought I would be doing this at my age when I was young,” Hawk says in the video. “I’m still going. I’ll keep on going until the wheels fall off.”
Tony Hawk had attempted the stunt for years before finally landing the 900 at the 1999 X Games in San Francisco, the same year his son Spencer was born. The two revisited the moment Monday when the skateboarding legend once again attempted what is often known as one of the sport’s most difficult tricks.
“Spencer was there at my first one,” Hawk says. “Now he’s at my last.”
