11-Year-old Brazilian Skateboarder Makes History By Landing World’s First 1080-Degree Turn


Gui Khury On Becoming First Skateboarder To Land 1080 On Vert ...

In case you missed it, 11 year old Brazilian X Games athlete, Gui Khury became the first skateboarder in history to land a 1080 on a vert ramp! 

The young skateboarding prodigy was congratulated by many of his heroes, including skateboarding hall of fame legend Tony Hawk.

The Brazilian youngster wasn't even born
 back in 1990, when, at the time, 22-year-old Tony Hawk completed the first 900-degree turn. However, at only 8 years old, Gui completed his first 900-degree turn.





Flash forward two decades after Hawk’s accomplishment, Gui says he was able to complete the jaw-dropping 1080-degree turn by using his time off from school, amidst the pandemic to train. Upon expertly landing the triple-turn earlier this week, Gui says he could hardly comprehend his achievement.

“I was like, oh my God, what did I just do?” Gui Khury told Reuters. “I was just like OK, I landed it. Now I am going to celebrate.”

Gui later told reporters that he celebrated by sharing a bowl of macaroni and cheese with his family.
