This 12-Year-Old Freestyle Skateboarder Will Blow Your Mind

By Joseph Chung

I think I just discovered the greatest freestyle skateboarder in the world, and the best part of it all is that he’s only 12 years old. I grew up playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater as a kid when the X-Games were at an all-time high. Watching Tony Hawk, Bob Burnquist and Rodney Mullen shred the ramps was every kid’s dream. It’s insane how much the skateboarding scene has grown. What was once deemed vandalism is hitting the mainstream, and I have nothing but joy saying that.

This kid by the name of Isamu Yamamato is absolutely nuts on the wheels. I don’t even know how to explain how crazy this is. He does moves I have never seen before. Even the king, Rodney Mullen, would be proud and impressed. Just watch and be mesmerized by the greatness.
