MasterCeddy
He is now 48 years old and recorded himself recently landing a cleaner 900 than this one lol.

The hype around this trick and the late 90's revival of skateboarding sparked entire industries of clothing to video games and in part helped fund todays "street fashion"
TI Pilot
Came here after seeing him do it again 17 years later. Watta god
MrCorivatt
1:15 This is why he made it
Nataly RAW

Tony Presidio
You see every skater was happy for him no envy that's what I call sports.
Liuhuayue
1:35 Wow, Tarzan the Disney movie was being advertised. 1999 was a long time ago...
Beyonder555
Doing a 900 is better than the day he married his wife and having any of his kids combined. 
Jesse
The announcer really annoyed me in this video
tweetweettiger
What's most impressive is he did it at a height of 6'3''. How many good skaters or snowboarders are that tall and can pull tricks that..
RetroMamba
Who remembers tech decks?

Kaioken MillyRock
Some say the announcer is still screaming 900!!! to this day
Jakob Gibhardt
He wasn't wearing the helmet because he could fall, but because he needed something to protect him from the hype at 1:49
Russel Keith
Tony hawk, Dave mirra, Travis Pastrana. the holy Trinity of the xgames
CrustyMilk
"this is the best day of my life, i swear to god" Baby: Am i joke to you?

Andrew Mitchell
Larry Fine....... Tony Hawk is a Legend. End of Story
DubQWST
Doing it is hard enough, doing it under pressure like that in front a large crowd yelling is just GODLY.
s0thndr
I was at this X Games, but did not see this live. I had no clue this was his absolute first 900.
Luke Wilson
Skateboarding's ultimate champion!
littlerascle59
I still remember watching this live. I literally cried tears of joy when he landed it.
Syafiqah Bisnu
Legen... wait for the 900!.... DARY! LEGENDARY!!!!
Expoilin
1:56 im guessing thats Spencer Hawk, in 1999. I wonder if he saw this video of himself.
Natsu
why doesnt he revert to keep the combo going
brian plum
Truly stood the test of time. To this day no one has landed a 900 in competition. 19 years an counting

Roman Ordunez

Tom Tom
If he didn't land the 900 he would probably never have invented rollerblading
Scratch Beats
Nine! Nine! Nine! *doesn't land it* Nein!
Real Deal
We can all thank the Shaman at 1:18 for casting a powerful skateboarding spell on Tony giving him the power to preform the trick.
wegottagamer
This has given me goosebumps. LEGEND.
Vazzily

Freakybananayo
Why are there different sponsors in the background each time? 0:37 Starburst, 0:40 Marines, 1:01 Taco Bell,
Larry Fine
tony hawk took like 30 years to learn that. the other kid? what 4 years? calm down hater.
Larry Fine
so what is tony hawk doing these days? hes a lazy fuck. he should be out sticking 900s.
Aly
That was also 14 years after Tony Hawk did the first one. 14 years after the first sub 4 minute mile people were doing that left and right, it's not that hard to believe when this kid has been skateboarding his whole life
Larry Fine
yeah but that kid does 900s too on regular vert and sticks them like its his job.
Danny V.
X Games 99' was Legendary
itsnotbutter13
He's had a couple of divorces since then...
NAGRich2347 Official
I love you I can skate and scooter because of u gies luv u
Paul Sutherland
To all the chillin's out there. I have a kid and am married and both were some of the most difficult days of my life, where almost 100% of our energies were devoted to doing something very hard that could go very bad and still there was no way of backing out because of either biologic or social pressure. Having a wedding is not the best day of anyone's life, and your wife pushing out a baby is a scary unbelievable experience. The sheer joy of fulfilling a trick is in the frivolity. Bravo hawk
Paul Sutherland
Was glued to the screen watching this live in '99. Love this moment, thanks for having it online to relive.
SoulDalto
good for you... your mom must be proud!
naneek92
9 9 9 9 9 9 900!!!!! Woooohoowjwksowjsosj

People who are honestly not impressed with this clearly don't skate and have no idea how hard that trick is...
blarg healingcat

Ch1ris23

DrDope164
To be honest i am not impressed at all.
K. Owski
so being married and having a child is a bad thing? what the hell man
Ultra Magnus
Nearly anybody can have a baby. Only one person had done a 900 at that time.
eternalending
I like how he kisses his wife and son and then basically tells them to fuck off because a skateboarding trick is more important than them.
blkfish92
I thought the same thing lol
RastaToad
nope, still beats those.
fuck google+
wow he twirled around on a skateboard.....
Duke Lettieri

TheSpencer911
This is definitely the best 900 ever done. Many of the other ones have been accomplished on Mega Ramps with greater speed. This 900 is by far the most impressive.

It's easy! Fill up your special meter then press right, down, circle. Simples.
Tanner Mulford
I was wondering where the board was too as i watched this again, they need to build a Xsonian muesum
