ABSTRACT
The article discusses the skateboarding skills of 9-year-old twins Tristan and Nic Puehse, in relation to science and the law of gravity. The two have done frontsiders and kickflips in China and are one rotation away from landing pro skater Tony Hawk's 900 tricks. Skaters use gravity to help them get moving. They also use their centers of gravity to turn their skateboards.
