TEHACHAPI, Calif., Tom Schaar, 12 is flying high. He's 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 6th grade, and measures just under 5-feet tall.
