Meet Skateboarder Tom Scharr, The Coolest 12-Year-Old Ever

Amelia McDonell-Parry / August 6, 2012

When I was 12, I was writing “Star Trek: The Next Generation” fanfic, crushing on the guy at my local videostore, and wondering when my boobs would start fitting my training bra. Tom Schaar, on the other hand, is a 12-year-old pro skateboarder who’s pulled off the first-ever 1080 trick. In the Bing video above, Schaar talks skating and smokes Damian Fahey in a go-kart race. Feeling like a slacker yet? [Bing]
