Tony Hawk and Andy Macdonald are feeling nostalgic for 1999. 

One week after posting a highlight video of their vert doubles run from the X Games 22 years ago, Hawk and Macdonald got together in person to recreate the iconic moment for the 2021 crowd:

After posting our 1999 doubles run last week, the feedback was incredible. I received thousands of comments about the love for that era of skating. The nostalgia was so strong that @andymacdonald & I decided to do it again, 22 years later - complete with @selema on the mic. Enjoy pic.twitter.com/DRHWgWsA1e

Hawk and Macdonald were the most dominant athletes at the X Games for an eight-year period between 1995-2003. 

They combined to win six individual gold medals and six gold medals in vert doubles, including five consecutive years from 1998-2002. 

At the 1999 event in San Francisco, Hawk and Macdonald beat Bucky Lasek and Bob Burnquist to win gold. They finished with a score of 95.50 on their second run.
