12-Year-Old Lands First 10-80 On Skateboard

12-year-old Tom Schaar landed the first 1080 move on a skateboard last week at the enormous MegaRamp in California.

Many stars of the skateboarding world have tried to do three complete revolutions in the air and then land it but none had been successful until Schaar pulled it off on his fifth try.

Schaar had been skateboarding for eight years but first tried the MegaRamp last year and learned how to skate on the 70 foot (21.3 metres) tall ramp that launches skaters up to 15 feet (4.5m) in the air before trying the 1080 last Monday.
