In the world of skateboarding, the 1080 aerial trick was believed to be somewhat of an impossible feat since no skateboarder had ever completed the trick.
The 1080 trick is an aerial move that is three consecutive revolutions in the air and even legends such as Tony Hawk were unable to do it.
Enter, 12-year-old skater Tom Schaar who attempted the trick on the MegaRamp at Woodward West action sports camp in Tehachapi, California.
After a couple of prior failed attempts, Tom was able to finally pull it off and make history:
