12 Year-Old Tom Schaar Lands The First Ever 1080

Step aside Tony Hawk (just kidding, Tony is a hero), Tom Schaar has landed the first ever 1080 on a skateboard. The young skate prodigy, who wasn’t even born when Tony Hawk Landed the first ever 900 in 1999, has somehow managed to land a 1080 degree turn.

The best thing about “X-Games” type sports is the amount of progression that you see year to year. One can only wonder how long it will take for someone to up the ante one more time and pull off a 1080-kickflip-backflip-indy-grab (you know what I mean).

Check out this awesome achievement in the video above, my favorite part right at the end where he shrugs and says “I did a 1080” – uber casual.
