At only 18, Tom Schaar is already one of Element’s longest tenured skate team members. As a youth superstar, Tom gained global skateboarding notoriety for being the youngest ever skateboarder to complete a 900 on vert, the first ever to complete a 1080, youngest X Games gold medalist, youngest Dew Tour and Vans Pool Party champions, and even made an appearance on the popular US talk show, “Ellen”.
Recently, Tom has dropped the pads and began to conquer cement as an incredible bowl skater. Contest wins aside, in the last year he’s been interviewed by Thrasher and released a three minute solo part.
2018 will be a big year for Tom with a part in the Element video, “Peace”, competition on the Vans Skate Park Series, and preparation for Olympic qualifying. Welcome to the Pro Team Tom Schaar!
