    Considering that is what made tony hawk huge, I would have to say that`s impressive. Unfortunately he learned how to do it like 13 years late.

    "Considering that is what made tony hawk huge"

    First of all, this statement is just wrong. Tony Hawk is the Rodney Mullen of Vert. He has invented so many tricks, it`s impossible to nail down one as his best.

    That`s Bob Burnquist in the video.

    How good is he? That 900 was Switch-stance.

    That is basically the same as writing with your opposite hand.

    The 900, even this long after Tony did it first, is still the holy grail of vert. For Bob to do it switch, is just simply amazing.

    (Just so those of you who don`t skate, or don`t know.)

    If someone didn`t know who Tony Hawk is, I really doubt they would know who Rodney Mullen is.

    "So what exactly makes this stand out above any other skateboard vid?"

    It`s on a mega-ramp. Which means he`s coming in with way more speed and going much higher than a regular vert ramp. And, as already mentioned, the 900 is hard as hell to do.


    Also, "Trick-Boarder"? Who the hell says that?

    This post really gets under my skin. I even registered just to speak my damn mind. First of all, it`s a FAKIE TO FAKIE 900! That means he was skating with his back to the ramp and landed backwards also. It`s BOB BURNQUIST.
    GIVE THE MAN PROPS, TOOLS!

    If you knew the difference between a fakie 900 and a 900, you`d understand my post was definitely warranted.

    What bothers me is : It`s obvious the uploader saw this in slow-motion and thought WHOA COOL, not realizing that this has never been done before. Please give credit when the credit`s due. Uploader, know you are a deutschbag.

    It`s not a fakie 9. I just noticed.

    Burnquist if goofy footed.

    Wouldn`t that just make it a nollie 900?

    I used to skate street. I`m not sure how that translates to vert.

    Just google Bob Burnquist. Or Google mega-ramp. I bet you`ll get a Fakie to Fakie 900 result. THEN try telling me that wasn`t a Fakie to Fakie 900. If you don`t know, you don`t know. Know THAT much, at least.

    @ snewzors-Mate-much like you said, I thought "hey, cool" and thought I would submit link-as for being a "deutschbag", yes I am of the german descent, I just fail to see what that has to do with me suggesting the link-the term you wanted was "douchebag"
