Kids these days.

Remember back in day when skateboarding icon Tony Hawk landed the first ever 900 at the X-games in 1999. People went ape sh*t and it was hailed as the impossible and never to be repeated blah blah blah.

Well a 12 year old boy from California has become the first skateboarder to land a 1080 (that’s three full rotations) and only a few people where there to witness it happen live. Tom Schaar, a six-grader, nailed the triple spin on his fifth attempt.

Nicely done laaitie.

Ya..still doesnt come close to that ollie i did over a brick that one time.

“A 12-year-old boy crushed the dreams of famous and amateur skateboarders this week when he set a world record to become the first person to land a three-rotation 1080 move.

Tom Schaar, a six-grader, pulled off the maneuver consisting of three full rotations that has been unsuccessfully attempted by the sport’s best for years.

The boy who is less than five feet tall completed the difficult trick at the Woodward West action sports camp in Tehachapi, California.” [Mail Online]
