12 year old kid lands the first recorded 1080 on a purpose built skate ramp. And it was only his 5th attempt. Kudos indeed. Oh and did I mention he was 12. I truly thought this was only ever going to be seen in Video Games.

Impressive.
But, hasn't a 1080 already been landed on both snowboard and skateboard? So, isn't it just a BMX feat?


just roll with it nerd

He's probably going to go back on a scooter and do kick flips for the rest of his life anyway.

Snowboard yes, skateboard no. It was the first time on a skateboard.

step 1, jump out of airplane with skateboard taped to your feet.

step 2, spin around a lot of times.

step 3, pull parachute and land safely.

btw I'm 12 years old.

Pretty awesome, most of my skateboarding experience came from Tony Hawk's pro skater 2 so I didn't know it hadn't been done yet.

Pssht, 1080 is so old school.

I hear 4K is the cool thing now.

I counted 3. And he took off front foot forward and landed front foot forward so it had to be 3 full rotations.

The fact that it was done on a ramp built specifically to make a 1080 possible kinda defeats the purpose. Any skilled skater could do a 1080 on that ramp, which makes this kid simply the first person to use this ramp for what it was built for.

I would sooner congratulate the builder of the ramp than the 12 year old.


It made more sense in my head.
