Skateboarding icon Tony Hawk stuck his first ollie 540 in 1989. Decades later, he decided to retire the trick. Today, Hawk completed it one final time and then broke down in tears.

“In 1989 I started trying ollie 540’s as a joke, since it seemed there was no way to keep a skateboard on your feet throughout 1 1/2 spins in the air,” Hawk said on IG. “But at some point I started scooping the tail with my back toe, which kept my feet in place for most of the spin.” He then continued to perfect the ollie 540 for the next 32 years. This is the last one.

Thank yew, legend.
