This 17-year-old skateboarder’s skills are bordering on the superhuman
While we’re all being told we need to exercise more by the PM, 17-year-old skateboarder Isamu Yamamoto doesn’t have any such problem.
Watch what he did for the unofficial World Freestyle Round-Up 2020, which sort of happened via the internet because of the coronavirus.
We believe that’s what the youngsters call “sick moves”.
Kelvin Liu spotted Isamu’s video on Twitter and shared it from his account, from where it went viral within hours.

Our favourite comment, however, was from actor and director, Taika Waititi, who said this:
Insane how realistic this looks. CGI has come so far. https://t.co/hkAaHRchb0
