12-year old Tom Schaar lands the first ever 1080 while skating the MegaRamp at Woodward West in Tehachapi, CA. When I was 12 there was no way that I would have ever even thought about dropping in on the MegaRamp, let alone doing a few rotations while I was 20-feet in the air.
“He did it on his fifth try,” his father, Nick Schaar, told ESPN.com in a phone interview. “He warmed up with 10 gay twists [a fakie to forward mute-grab 360], half a dozen 720s, and I think he threw a 900 in there. Then he did the 1080 on his fifth try. Then he went back and did it again the next day.”
