Transcendent Skateboarding

I remember where I was when this happened. Without a doubt one of the most beautiful skateboarding moments EVER.

Before his final run- the last run of the event- Bob Burnquist was sitting in second place behind two-time defending champion Bucky Lasek. Burnquist produced a flawless run, including multiple tricks that had never been seen before, and as a result, were unnamed. During the run, commentator Tony Hawk went hoarse and nearly lost his voice while screaming in disbelief. Burnquist was rewarded with a 98, the highest score ever given in skateboard vert.

Even if you are not into skating...this truly transcends the genre. Enjoy.
