Mini Crusher: 8-Year-Old Skateboard Sensation Shreds at The Berrics

Sit down and zip around the world-famous indoor skatepark with Brazil’s little skateboard sensation, Joaquim Costa.

Joaquim Costa was just 6 years old when he hopped on his first skateboard. And he caught on to skateboarding fast. So fast, in fact, that he caught the attention of SkateNation‘s Tulio Oliveira.

Now, 2 years later, Oliveira is Costa’s rep and mentor. The pair continues to sharpen Costa’s burgeoning talent and build their relationship as travel buddies.

This short-but-sweet edit follows the super-psyched 8-year-old as he dishes out big sends at L.A.’s storied indoor skatepark, The Berrics.

Hit play and get some stoke by proxy.
