This has been getting lots of traction on the web. How to do it? Continual practice and the ability to put fear aside or simply stare it down. He's probably spent hundreds of hours practicing as compared to 5 minutes on video.

I used to work with Tony Hawk's brother, Steve Hawk, who is 10 years older than Tony. It was his job to go and pick his little brother up from the skate park before dinner. Tony would work at a trick over and over again until he got. I'm sure his body has taken a toll from all that trial and error. I have an issue with error side of things when it comes to flipping oneself in the air. I'm surprised these guys don't break their necks and I'm also surprised more people don't drown surfing Maverick's.

Malcolm Gladwell's recent book Outliers was a fun read. Basically you need to spend 10,000 hours doing something, probably something your passionate about.
