This 12-Year-Old's Skateboarding Skills Defy Reason

By Casey Chan on at

Riding three skateboards is hard. Riding a skateboard sideways on top of another skateboard is really hard. You might think this is building toward something — but nope, I’m just pointing out that Isamu Yamamoto is an actual wizard on a skateboard. And he’s only 12 years old.

Yamamoto has been skating for five years, and winning freestyle contests for about half as long. Some people are born to do one thing really well, but practising absolutely all the time can’t hurt either. Or maybe the gravity is lower in Kyoto.
