A 12 year old kid could be the next Shaun White or Tony Hawk. Tom Schaar has landed what used to be an impossible move, a 1080. That’s right, 3 full rotations, 1080 degrees around and 100% impressive. Check out this little bit of skateboarding history being made in the video below (the magic moment starts at about 1:10) :
Still, its very impressive and certainly nothing that Tony Hawk or Shaun White has accomplished on a skateboard. Its been about 13 years since that day in 1999 when Tony Hawk hit the 900 and now that trick has finally been surpassed. Young Tom Schaar just might have a bright future ahead.
