Watch Tony Hawk skate the world’s first-ever horizontal loop

For The Win

Tony Hawk dreamed up a challenge and Sony helped turn it into a reality. Behold the horizontal loop — believed to be the first-ever of its kind, says the 47-year-old skater.

In the video he says before attempting to tackle the loop, he had no idea what he was doing. He posted a couple of his fails on Instagram. This, per the caption, is his 12th try.

Ouch. It’s impressive his body can still take a beating like that, especially considering Hawk started skating at 9 years old. Thirty eight years and he’s going as hard as ever.

Eventually, he nails it.
