12 year old kid pulls first 1080 skateboarding!??!?  Reply with quote  

So, um yeah. When will skateboarding (or other "extreme" sports) reach a zenith? This is honestly getting out of hand.

As a skater of over 20 years myself, this kind of shit is both inspiring, and disheartening. The latter simply because I never had the balls at his age to attempt anything like this.

I can't embed because I can barely post, takes me like 10-20 tries hitting the submit button... Just takes me back to login. Anyone else having this problem?

Embedding seems to work fine for me... This is pretty cool. I guess this kid stuck a second 1080 later that day just to prove he could do it.

I imagine you didn't have a ramp like this on your driveway growing up though. With a crazy ass ramp like that, I'd be busting 1800's like nothing. :)

Kids nowdays have all the good shit. At 12 I was skating my crappy ramp made of cinderblocks and splintery wood

Exactly. You can't do this kind of shit in pools are the local skate park. That said, good for this kid. If he could hit those consistently he'd get sponsored and start winning some competitions.

I assume he's already sponsored if he has a ramps and videos with production value like that.

Pretty impressive, I assume it has to be easier to do a lot of spins if you're that little, than if you're a fully grown man.
