Ok so this footage is from 2013 – that said it features Tony Hawk – who is pretty much deemed “old school” these days with him hitting his mid 40s this week
Also doing the loop is definitely an old school skateboarding trick – in fact Duane Peters did it 10 years before Tony h did (if you look closely you can spot Duane giving advice in this footage)

After the collapse of the skatepark in the late 70s early 80s the focus for vert skating was half pipes. What was left of the industry at the time encouraged kids to build their own half pipes and to hold their own contests. Some of the most exciting skate contests in the Mid 80s came out of Texas.
