SKATEBOARD superstar-in-the-making, Zion Effs, may be just eight years old, but he’s already tearing up the skateparks of the world. The talented youngster’s incredible abilities have caused a stir in his home-town of Miami, where he’s been honing his skills since the age of three.

Now eight, Zion has skated everywhere from Marseille to London and Italy, and has traveled the United States winning numerous competitions around the country.

Zion told Barcroft Media: “I love <a href="" target="_blank">skateboarding</a> because I can do it for myself and I don’t have to worry about anybody else… I want to continue skating for the rest of my life."

His dad Richie says that even when Zion started as a 3-year-old, he didn’t want to do the regular tricks that other kids would do; he wanted to do the technical stuff, the tricks that seasoned and pro skateboarders would do. Now people are freaked out by the tiny pro, because he can do all these things at just 8 - can you imagine what he will do 8 years from now?

Now, having mastered some of the hardest tricks in the sport, Zion is joined at the skate park by his brother, Jax, who, at just two years old, is already proving to be somewhat of a skate <a href="" target="_blank">prodigy</a> himself.

Zion can be found on Instagram @zioneffs, and fellow future skate star, two-year-old brother Jax Decker Effs, is @jaxdecker_effs.
