This 12-Year-Old's Skateboarding Skills Defy Reason

Riding three skateboards is hard. Riding a skateboard sideways on top of another skateboard is really hard. You might think this is building toward something—but nope, I’m just pointing out that Isamu Yamamoto is a goddamn wizard on a skateboard. And he’s only 12 years old.


Yamamoto has been skating for five years, and winning freestyle contests for about half as long. Some people are born to do one thing really well, but practicing absolutely all the time can’t hurt either. Or maybe the gravity is lower in Kyoto.

Check out more of Yamamoto’s videos on his YouTube channel.
