Fresh from pulling off skateboarding’s first-ever 1080, 12-year-old Tom Schaar made a guest appearance on Ellen DeGeneres' American daytime talk-show ...
While the main topic of conversation inevitably concentrated on the historic trick which Tom landed last month, the audience were also treated to another glimpse of the 12-year-old’s talent when he performed an exhibition on a specially-built skate ramp outside the studio.
Watch Tom hit his first 1080 while riding the MegaRamp at Woodward West action sports camp in Tehachapi, California, on March 26:
The trick, which comprises three aerial revolutions, is one of the hardest of all to achieve and many athletes have tried and failed to complete the move.
Besides getting the call from Ellen DeGeneres, Tom also recently got an invitation to skate the X Games Big Air competition this summer in Los Angeles.
