Wow 1 session. Pretty intense how he launched out of the ramp and nearly broke himself off completely. 50!

Rad. Radder when I realized it was one sesh. That last trick was quite steezy. Is it bad that I canít remember what any vert trick is called? Other than spins, shuvs and grinds I couldnít name any of them.

That was so sick!  Maybe I missed it, but I was hoping to see the 540 Varial where he tosses the extra Varial with his hand like he does in the The End.  I loved/love that trick.

Hawk can do whatever he wants though.  I still have to thank him for getting me into skating, THPS fully made me become a skater.

Amazing

Anyone remember the interview Tony mentions how he doesn't stretch? He just shows up to every ramp and does the same warm up run to loosen up

Kinda jarring to him say that this would be the last time he would do some of these tricks. Especially since he did them so well. Happy birthday!

Sick. As much as he's the most famous corporate money maker etc. ever. You don't keep doing this without pure love for skating. You have to respect it. My goal is to do ollie up curbs and do really long manuals still at 50 so he's bananas.

That was so great. If it really was one sesh it's superhuman but even if not it was incredible.

Birdman is too sick. He made them all look so easy.

I saw your mom do a ollie to cooch drop straight down the big black pole, it was gnarly. she defiantly shut that shit down.

that was inspirational. the crazy thing about these birthday trick videos is you have to do more tricks the older you get.

All those lip tricks were so fucking cool.

Especially when you realize there's no 900...

Is it bad that I canít remember what any vert trick is called? Other than spins, shuvs and grinds I couldnít name any of them.

If you turn on captions, it tells you trick names and the year he first landed them

Oh shit!  That's awesome.  Some of the names seem a little suspect or not what I'd think to call them but still sick to see.

I would have just done a 5-0 and called it a day

Think of someone you know who is 50 years old. Imagine that person rolling down a driveway on a skateboard.
