Pro skaters Tony Hawk and Aaron “Jaws” Homoki teamed up with Sony, 900 Films, and the Zero Gravity Corporation to try to pull off weightless skateboard tricks while in zero gravity.

“We’ve been battling gravity our whole lives. Today we get to try some tricks that we only ever dreamed about,” Hawk said.

Armed with 4K Sony cameras, Hawk, Homoki, and the production team filmed and floated inside a Boeing 727. The zero-gravity aircraft mimics the varying levels of reduced gravity, including that of Mars and the Moon. During each pass, Hawk and Jaws try tricks that would be difficult or even impossible on Earth. They tried rotating through the air, trading boards, and spinning boards around their legs.

Also, check out this behind-the-scenes video which shows how difficult it was for the camera crew to do their job inside the aircraft:

Zero Gravity flights are available for outsiders, too, if you can afford the reservation fee, which is around $5,000 (or P232,347).
