Tony Hawk first landed the two-and-a-half-revolution skateboard spin known as a 900 at the X Games in 1999.

Seventeen years later, at 48 years old, the man's still got it.

In a new video by Ride Channel, Hawk took to the halfpipe to attempt the 900 again—17 years to the day after his first successful spin. It took a few tries, but he stuck it. According to the video caption, it could have been Hawk's last 900.

That's legend behavior.
