Every Friday, we showcase the best videos sent into us by our friends and fans in a little something we, and the rest of the Internet, like to call Fan Friday.
The level of youth skateboarding is absolutely mind blowing right now. A 9-year-old girl recently landed a 540, and now 8-year-old Minna Stess from Petaluma, California dropped in on the MegaRamp at Woodward West in Tehachapi, California on July 3. Stess, who's favorite skater is Bob Burnquist, stood atop the 27-foot quarterpipe and dropped in clean. She was nervous at first, but as soon she rolled away her first thought was that it was really easy.
Even though she is only 8, Minna has been progressing to this point for some time. When she was 3, she went to see the X Games 3D movie and saw Burnquist riding the MegaRamp at his house. As soon as she saw it, Minna poked her mom and said, "I want to do THAT!"
