HarrymFrom the San Jose Mercury News:

One of the nation’s best young skateboarders lives in San Jose, but is never allowed to grind, ollie or kick-flip unless his folks are around.

Harry Murphy, who also has his own sponsor, is only 8 years old.

“I still don’t like to let him out of my sight when he’s skating though,” said dad Paul Murphy.

Even under careful supervision, with a helmet always attached, little Harry is living his dream. In the first grade, he wrote an essay about his desire to become a sponsored skater. A year later he is one.

“As soon as I started,” Harry said, pushing back red-brown curls spilling from his helmet, “I wanted someone to sponsor me.”
