"Keep going until the wheels fall off."

Seventeen years after Tony Hawk landed his first 900 during the X-Games in San Francisco, the pro skater decided to attempt the trick one more time, at the age of 48.

Although Hawk is still an incredible athlete, he clearly took a beating while attempting to land the 900.

After countless falls, Hawk finally landed the trick.

After ripping off his gear he hugs his son Spencer and tells the camera that this will be the last time he ever attempts the trick.
