An 11-year-old Brazilian boy has made skateboarding history after becoming the first-ever person to land a 1080-degree spin on a vertical ramp.

It’s been over 20 years since skateboarding legend Tony Hawk completed the world’s first 900-degree spin. The 1080, three full rotations and a clean landing, has been seen as one of the “holy grails” in the sport.

He pulled off the historic feat using makeshift skateboarding facilities in his grandmother’s back garden as he trained during the coronavirus lockdown, report Yahoo.
