Tony Hawk Is Still Hitting 720s In His 50s

Videos by OutKick

Tony Hawk used to be the best skater in the world, but now he’s 52 years old and hardly any of us expected him to be near a half pipe. Well, apparently he’s still doing 720s in his spare time, while most of us will spend our 50s financing a cherry red Corvette that smells like cigarette smoke.

Since Tony can’t do anything wrong, I guess now would be the perfect time to ask for a remaster of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2.

And props to whoever left the video uncut and showed how psychotic this guy still is about skating. The guy has the heart of a champion.


Our “everyone gets a trophy” generation can learn a ton from this video. Even Tony Hawk fails more often than he succeeds, so why shouldn’t all of us expect to fail before we ever succeed?

Tony Hawk is still the man.
