Tom Schaar pulled off the first ever 1080 on a skateboard at Woodward West action sports camp. Yes, it was on a Megaramp, but he’s only 12 years old.

Jacked up on Red Bull, Tom cruised into the monsterous wall of a custom built 27-foot ramp riding backwards and pulled off a cab-1080.

“For years the holy grail of all skateboard tricks, the 1080, has eluded the biggest and most talented stars in skateboarding. While many have tried, it was never landed — that is until now,” said the company organizer.

Shaun White, defending X Games Skate Vert champion, was believed to become the first to achieve the move.
