Old Dude Nails 900

Tony Hawk is almost as old as me. 17 years ago he was the first skateboarder ever to perform a 900 (two and a half full revolutions) in competition.

At 48 he decided to do it one more time.

In Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee series, the episode with Chris Rock, he says something like:

To learn to do a skateboard trick, how many times do you have to get something wrong first, until you get it right? And you hurt yourself and if you learn to do that trick, now you got a life lesson. Whenever I see those skateboard kids, I think, those kids will be all right.

Watch a 48 year old try to do the trick one more time:

Here’s him doing it the first time. Wasn’t easy then either…
