Watch Gui Khury Land a 1080
Many years ago, Tony Hawk cemented his legend when he landed the first in-competition 900 at the X Games. That was probably at the pinnacle of skateboarding‘s popularity with the general population. Right now, though, skateboarding could be on the verge of a huge leap in popularity thanks to the Olympics. Don’t forget about the X Games, though! The 2021 X Games just happened, and once again history was made.
Gui Khury was taking part in the Skateboarding Vert Best Trick competition, the one where Hawk once landed a 900. Khury didn’t feel like that was enough rotations for him, though. He successfully landed a 1080, the first ever at the X Games. Yeah, it won him the competition, obviously. Want to see history being made? You can watch Khury’s X Games 1080 in the video above. All he needs now is his own video game.
