Before Tom Schaar could vote or participate in any of the rites of passage afforded by adulthood, he had already made skateboarding history by performing the first 1080 on vert, before spinning one in the X-Games in Shanghai in 2012. He was 12-years-old. Six years later, Tom's persistent winning and style evolution have taken the high road to pro status on long-time sponsor Element in 2018 and a role in the brand's full-length Peace (2018).
Growing up fast also meant ditching the pads and embracing the challenge, speed, and feel of concrete bowls, allowing him to let loose and expand his already dangerous trick vocabulary, provided he can keep his mind off video games.
