Photograph By Red Bull Content Pool

In 1980, Steve Caballero invented the Caballerial: a fakie 360 ollie. In 1984, Mike McGill spun 540 with the McTwist. In 1985, Tony Hawk landed the 720 (fakie to forward). Fourteen years later, in 1999, Hawk landed the first 900 on vert. In 2012, almost 13 years after Hawk's 900, 12-year-old Tom Schaar landed the first 1080. Wow.
