12-Year-Old Lands World’s First 1080 on a Skateboard [Video]

 

If you think you’re a very accomplished person, ask yourself, have you set a world record in something resembling a sport? Have you set a world record in anything? Did you do it before you were 13 years old? Well, 12-year-old Tom Schaar performed the first ever successful 1080 on a skateboard. He landed the feat, which consists of three full spins in the air while on a skateboard before it hits a surface, on the MegaRamp at Woodward West action sports camp. His father, Nick Schaar, said after warming up with a host of other maneuvers, Tom successfully pulled off the 1080 on only his fifth try.
