Anti-a tragic.
Now, we used to say we put on our tights to put on the world. So I don't think it tarnishes the image at all.

  Those lip tricks were all proper.  Rewatchable for sure.   Prolly my favorite part from him so far.

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

because you have to warm up (eg. jump rope) before any "exercise" and stretch after you are finished

I would imagine that busting a basic vert run with some airs that you have been doing for 40 years is not as difficult on your body as busting a few flatground flip tricks as a warm up.

I'm sorry. - but he's kidding himself,  if he thinks he invented blindside feeble grinds to fakie in 2000.

I can't even bend my knees or back until I've skated 10 minutes and stretched.

@1:20



I can't even comprehend having a warm up run that goes: Lien tailslide, body jar, back tail, mute fakie, fakie disaster, back lipslide, slider to fakie, chink chink grind, caballerial.

I remember an interview with BoB saying if Hawk had decided to do mega ramp, nobody else would have stood a chance. Hawk is the man.

I remember Hawk saying he made a choice to stop being competitive at some point with not only others but himself.  I can imagine when the Mega Ramp came out, he probably realized he shouldn't even play with it because he could get obsessed.  He is an intelligent skater to say the least.

So good. There's 50 yr olds that still rip but I don't think anyone else is still going hard and capable of taking legit slams on daily basis like Tony is. The one after the 720 would've probably ended my session and he just went right back to it. Skateboarding couldn't have lucked out with a better person to be the face of the industry

Yeah , doubt it . Think he fucked up the year .
At the start he specifically says he is "revisiting some of the tricks he created " 
(some one did that trick at lances ramp in ban this -1989.)
Hawk probably did them years before that .

From the video description:

"I did 50 tricks that I've created (and/or pioneered on vert)".

Not sure if he pioneered them on vert or not, but he's not claiming to have invented all of these

Damn, that was good. I feel like the common sentiment among most good skaters is to value quality over quantity -- even if that means only having 5-10 very well performed tricks, but I think this goes to show that having volume like a T-hawk can earn you longevity, where as alot of Tony's peers from his generation all seem to barely have ten tricks. I'd definitely rather have 50 tricks than 5 beautifully styled ones. "It's not what tricks you do, it's how you do them"... Yeah right, get that shit outta here! I feel like from what we've seen out of skaters, prioritizing style over tricks gives you less shelf life, in a way. Either that or people like Tony, haslam, or Daewon are just an anomaly.

That's exactly what it is.
