Nic and Tristan Puehse are just eight years old - but they're already sponsored skaters. Find out more about these skateboarding twins right here.

Puehse Twins - Skateboarding Brothers

Nic and Tristan Puehse are fraternal twins (that means they look alike, but aren't identical) who started skateboarding when they were six years old. A year later, they entered their first skateboarding competition in the California Amateur Skateboard League and Tristan finished first for best trick, while Nic placed second. Since then, these skateboarding twins have had top finishes in dozens of skate comps and quickly made a name for themselves in the skateboarding world. Their natural athletic ability, and "no fear" attitude, as well as their twin appeal, have made them serious competitors and a hit with sponsors. The Puehse twins are now sponsored by Nixon, Dreggs Skateboards and NKE 6.0 - the new line of skateboard shoes and gear by NIKE.

Puehse Twins - Double Trouble

Nic and Tristan Puehse have yet to hit their ninth birthdays but they are already entering amateur competitions against kids three or four years older than them. The pair usually skate three or four hours a day and are homeschooled by their mom, so they have lots of time to work on mastering new skate tricks. Their skateboarding exploits have also taken them to China, where they did a skate demo in 2006 to show the Chinese how safe skateboarding can be for kids. Next up for the Puehse twins will be an appearance on the FUEL TV program, New Pollution in December 2006, which will feature profiles of up and coming action sports athletes. They have yet to reach the status of a Ryan Sheckler or make an appearance at the X Games but these two skating groms are well on their way.
