A 12-year-old slateboarder is flying high.

Tom Schaar is believed to be the first skateboarder ever to land a 1080. That's three rotations in the air. He accomplished the feat after just a few attempts, and then went on to do it a second time.

Schaar is in the 6th grade and is just under five feet tall.
