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"

Came here after seeing him do it again 17 years later. Watta god
Nataly RAW

The announcer really annoyed me in this video

And Thus The Tony Hawk's Video Game Series Was Born!

Doing a 900 is better than the day he married his wife and having any of his kids combined.

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..

Who remembers tech decks?

1:35 Wow, Tarzan the Disney movie was being advertised. 1999 was a long time ago...

1:59 Tony Hawk: This is the best day of my life Tony Hawks baby from 1:57 : -.-

Tony hawk, Dave mirra, Travis Pastrana. the holy Trinity of the xgames
brian plum
Truly stood the test of time. To this day no one has landed a 900 in competition. 19 years an counting
Joris Harms
I'm from the Netherlands, not wanting to come across as overgeneralizing (I hardly know anything about reallife skaters) but I always imagine them saying 'cool dude' and eating pizza all day and landing the most ridiculous stunts all day long XD is this accurate?
Kaioken MillyRock
Some say the announcer is still screaming 900!!! to this day
Dylan Slater
Tony Hawk gets his mates running the show to ban Tas Pappas from the best trick contest without giving him a reason other than "sorry mate you're not in it" so he had no challenger to be the first to land the 900. No one ever reports that though to they? 🤷‍♂️
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
Tony Presidio
You see every skater was happy for him no envy that's what I call sports.
breezetix
1:56 im guessing thats Spencer Hawk, in 1999. I wonder if he saw this video of himself.
Syafiqah Bisnu
Legen... wait for the 900!.... DARY! LEGENDARY!!!!

I wasnt into skateboarding but I had Tony Hawks games and loved them, he is such a good dude and I always hope he does well in life he really does deserve it and he seems like such a good man! even as a non skater he is part of my growing up. God bless Tony!

I loved this spark in the skateboard and Xgames community. Now we're doing 1260s with ease and intertwining tricks within it. Son of a.....

Kisses his child carried by his wife, “ThIs is the best day of my life! I swear to God!”
Tom Tom
If he didn't land the 900 he would probably never have invented rollerblading
DubQWST
Doing it is hard enough, doing it under pressure like that in front a large crowd yelling is just GODLY.
Christopher O'Keefe
So amazing ...a true champion...his legacy and contributions will ultimately live on.. 😊
Joe Cockerline
The greatest moment in skating history, period.

Not one cell phone in sight. The glory days

Damn I'm 26 now and remember watching x games. And tony hawk being repetitive with the 900 till he landed it my jaw dropped! Haha

This was on television for so long after this happened. Legendary.
Lance Uppercut
Wow that feeling 🤟

“This is the best moment of my life” kisses his kid on the forehead

Tony Hawk, the kind of dude that would cross a Picket Line without a seconds thought.

Epic moments in skateboarding history!

Evi1M4chine
And I still remember when skateboarding and sports events were seen like opposites of each other. With something like it becoming an actual sport being as unimaginable as … damn I wanted to say footbag becoming an Olympic discipline, but apparently that is now a serious sport too!
nikon d3200
I love tony hawk the skateboard is like a vice never leaves his feet
Creep Green
for some reason i have only seen tony hawk riding in contests its rare to find footage of him just street skating doing kick flips and shit!! maybe i have missed this footage as i am noob to skating

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

He's had a couple of divorces since then...

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

DrDope164
To be honest i am not impressed at all.
M Schmeff
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
