My brother in law does skate ministry and has known this kid and his family for a long time. So cool!
Unfortunately, that wasn’t a 720. A 720 requires 2 360-degree turns, which would always land him facing the same direction he started in. What he did was a 540 – one-and-a-half turns, not two full turns.
It was a terrific jump for an 8-year-old, but not a 720.
Just watched it again and I am an idiot – full 720, and I’ll go hide now :) Way to go little man!
