The Puehse Skateboarding Twins

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.

A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
