Tony Hawk has shared a really sweet video of his young daughter overcoming fear and taking on her first drop-in on the skateboard.

And, just like her famous skateboarding father, she completely nailed the move.

Hawk is one of the most famous, successful, and influential skateboarders of all-time. He is renowned for his licensed video games on PlayStation and Xbox, for his mid-air tricks on the board, and for his 10 gold medals at the Summer X Games.

Though the 50-year-old Hawk has 40 years extra experience than his daughter Kadence Hawk, 10, skateboarding clearly runs in the family.

But in a post tweeted on Sunday, he said he may well have been more nervous than she was when she first attempted the move.

"My daughter overcoming her fear in real time (wait for it)," he said. "I might have been more nervous than she was."

Watch the clip right here:

The clip has proved a viral hit with Hawk's fans because in less than one day, it amassed more than 5 million views.
