11-year-old Spinderfella Lands 1080

by The Editors on May 9, 2020

We never really thought the skateboarding 900 was that big a deal. Yes, we were at the X-Games that year, but left after watching Tony Hawk fail for what seemed like hours. True, he eventually landed one (long after the “event” had “officially” ended) and the world was amazed, but that extra 180 just didn’t seem historic to us.  

Now, Gui Khury, an 11-year-old skater from Brazil, has kicked up the spin to 1080, with a strikingly similar hand drag. Nice work, Gui. But can this be the last of the spin-to-win era? Please? Maybe just leave the 1260s and 1440s to Olympic snowboarders.
