World renown skateboarding legend Tony Hawk has a lot of titles and accolades thus far, but he can now add one more.

Hawk is now 47 years old, but age is not slowing him down. He recently created the world's first horizontal loop, once again defying the laws of gravity.

In reference to trying to figure out how to skate the loop, Hawk explained, "I don't know. I'm just going to find out the hard way." Hawk did figure it out, and recorded every step of the way, with the help of Sony.

Hawk shared his dream of this creation first on Instagram in a video with the following caption.

"I wanted to do a vertical spiral (sideways loop?) so I pitched it to Sony @actioncam as a video project… and suddenly it was a reality. You can see the panic, struggle, and frustration unfold Nov 19. "Watch out, you might get what you’re after” #SonySpiral#ActionCam#SonyActionCam "
