Tony Hawk will eternally be the G.O.A.T. of skateboarding. There have been different legends in the game, however few has come near reaching Hawk’s pinnacle of fame—and none have had as a lot of a cultural influence as “The Birdman.”
Though we don’t see as a lot of the 49-year-old Hawk as we used to, each as soon as in a whereas the legendary skateboarder pops again onto the radar. In the latest episode of The Super Slow Show, a new YouTube sequence that options celebrities doing cool issues in gradual movement, Hawk stepped in entrance of the high-tech, high-speed 4K cameras, trying to present the world a slow-motion glimpse at a “heelflip sex-change melon grab.” (We didn’t provide you with the identify, and for the file: GLAAD particularly recommends avoiding the term “sex change,” and favors the term “transition”.)
This transfer is sort of as loopy as its identify, and one Hawk admits he’s solely tried a handful of instances all through his 37-year profession.
Be warned: The ensuing footage will completely blow your thoughts, so be sure you press replay a few instances.
Sure, watching the godfather of skateboarding throw down this transfer is fairly superior. But watching him do it at 1,000 frames per second is so, so, a lot cooler.
