Twelve year old Element team rider Tom Schaar has landed the first ever 1080º. It has been amazing to watch Tom’s progression over the past. He first caught our eye when at 7yrs old when he entered the Element am contest series, and his special talent for transition was clear. While we were sure his career would blossom, the rate at which he progressed is alarming. From his quick adaption to vert and the mega ramp, to becoming the youngest ever to do a 900º, he continues to blow minds and set records. We congratulate Tom for his accomplishment, and can’t wait to see what he does next.
California RampWorks was strategic in helping Tom see this trick to its reality. Check out exclusive interviews and the feature built by CRW that helped make it all possible. See further documentation and photos here.
