At age 12, Tom Schaar landed skateboarding’s ﬁrst 1080. It was a career deﬁning trick that gained Tom international attention as well as a bit of a stigma within the core skateboard community as an ‘air baby.’ Since then Tom has proven himself to be more than a one-trick-wonder. From video parts for Element Skateboards in backyard pools to dominating the Vans Park Series Pro Tour, Tom has shown he’s able to adapt to any terrain. In this Rider Proﬁle we visit Tom’s house in San Diego California to discuss his career, his goals for the future, and to follow him on a ﬁlming session at Washington Street skatepark with his friend and ﬁlmer Chris Gregson.
