Why do I feel like Tony's going to call me "champ" and take me out for ice cream after this video?

The 900 is so easy to do. Just hit front down and circle (or B).

He looks like when a movie makes a character older by just giving them grey hair.

Tony Hawk is apparently 51 now, but he still sounds like a rad 80's teenager both in name and in voice.

3 things this video taught me:
1. If YouTube had been around when I tried skateboarding as a kid, I might have been able to ollie after watching the slowmo in this video, and I wouldn't have given up so fast.
2. Tony Hawk cannot do every trick in the book. I had literally no idea. I thought he was superman on a skateboard.
3. He's a really humble dude and I would like to be his friend. Ok, I already knew that one, but it needed saying again.

I really appreciate that they showed his “fails” I think it’s so easy to compare yourself with other people especially pros but it’s nice to see that they’re not perfect either
