Check out 12-year-old pro-skateboarder Tom Schaar!

Ultra-talented kid alert!

BING caught up with pro-skateboarder Tom Schaar as he competed against host Damien Fahey in a go-kart race!

The prodigy is the only person known to have landed a 1080 on a skateboard, doing it first on a mini mega ramp in March 2012. He did it in competition at X Games Asia in April 2012 for Mini Mega gold.

Growing up watching the Nickelodeon show Rocket Power, he’s often called “Otto Rocket” for his skateboarding intensity.

Damien and Tom discussed how he pulled off the first ever 1080 trick. Oh, and he’s only 12-years-old.

Watch and learn.
