Tony Hawk remains one of the world’s greatest skateboarders, which is quite a feat at age 47, when most pro athletes are already well into their retirement. Hawk, though, is still breaking boundaries in the sport. In collaboration with Sony’s Action Cam, Hawk recently built and successfully skated what’s being purported as the first-ever horizontal loop ramp.
As you can see, it takes Hawk a few tries to complete the stunt, but when he does it’s pretty stunning.
“People keep asking me questions, like, ‘How do you approach it?'” Hawk says in the clip. “I don’t know. I’m just going to find out the hard way.”
That’s pretty much been Hawk’s motto throughout his career. That’s the same way he approached the 900, which led him to become the first skateboarder ever to complete the two-and-a-half revolution aerial spin off a skateboarding ramp in 1999.
We can’t wait to see what Hawk will do next.
