Flying high: 10-year-old finds success at skateboard competitions
Wednesday, March 30, 2011
Manny Maire is a typical 10-year-old.
He is in the 4th grade at Thorpe Gordon Elementary School. He plays guitar in the Rockestra at Class of Rock, 2503 Industrial Dr. He likes snowboarding, surfing and playing video games.
But he’s also highly ranked in the world of skateboarding.
His dad, Tim Maire, bought him his first skateboard when he was just 5.
“It sat there for a few months, but when I took him out skating, he seemed to be a natural,” Tim said.
