Element Skateboards today welcomes Tom Schaar to the Pro Team. Element's celebration of Tom comes after ten years together and seeing Tom mature from prodigy to one of the world's best transition skateboarders.

Tom started skating for Element in 2008 at just 8 years old. His list of accomplishments range from recent full video part, Vans Skate Park Series World Championship, X Games and Vans Pool Party victories, to being the youngest skateboarder ever to spin a 900 and first skateboarder ever to land a 1080…

Element Founder, Johnny Schillereff says "Tom is a gentleman, ripper, friend, family and officially a professional skateboarder! Congratulations and thank you Tom for ten years of dedication to Element. It is an honor to have been with you and your amazing family since the get. We love you Tom!"

Element presented Tom with his first board last night at surprise party at Tony Hawk's indoor ramp in Vista, CA with the Element team, hundreds of family and friends. Tom signed limited edition boards that are available now on elementbrand.com right before boarding a flight to Australia to participate in the annual Bowl-A-Rama event in Bondi Beach.

Congratulations Tom!
