Tony Hawk #2.
Remember the night when skateboarding made ESPN's SportsCenter?
Tony landed the first 900 after trying the trick off and on for a decade at the 1999 X-Games. It should be noted that Danny Way almost made one in the Santa Cruz Speed Wheels video Risk It from 1990.
I miss when wheel companies would put out videos. It's probably not feasible in today's economy.
The only photographer who caught the trick on film was Rob "Whitey" McConnaughy.
