Hawk completed the first 900 に 1999 during the X Games. He came out of retirement to compete at this year’s event and was on hand to watch the youngster.

I jumped into the Best Trick event at @xgames this afternoon and managed to make a few things; it was my first time skating the event since 2003. So fun to be back in the mix! Congrats to Gui Khuri on pulling a 1080 のために (ゴールド),” Hawk tweeted.
