Athlete Bio

Not yet old enough for a driver's license, skateboard prodigy Tom Schaar, 15, already has 12 X Games competition starts and made skateboarding history when he became the first to land the 1080 on a skateboard. At X Games Austin 2014 he became the youngest X Games Big Air gold medalist. He's also competitive in vert, where he has landed a 900, and in park, where he won the prestigious 2015 Vans Pool Party. The three-time X Games Big Air medalist entered traditional high school in fall 2014 and has to return after X Games to take his finals.
