48-year-old Tony Hawk landed a 900 on the 17th anniversary of first landing the trick

Wow.  Just wow.  Tony Hawk is now 48 years old and still shredding like he’s 30.  It’s been 17 years since he first landed the 900, and to celebrate he decided to land it again.  He says this will probably be the last time he completes the trick, but who knows…

Best YouTube comment:

The real test of skill will be if he can land the 48 at 900

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is a Modern Take on a Nostalgic Video Game

One of the most iconic video games from my childhood is without a doubt the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series.  No matter what console you were playing on, it brought endless hours of entertainment.  It also made me think I was a waaaay better skateboarder than I actually was.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 will release on September 29th of this year.  You can pre-order here.
