September 15, 2016 – Roman is not your ordinary grom. At the ripe age of 11 years old, Roman Hager has already beaten many goals that most skateboarders wish they could have accomplished by their late teens. While dreaming big takes Roman to places he’s never been before, he humbly admits that his success lies in the palms of others. Roman thanks his parents for being supportive for always taking him skating every day that his schedule allows.
Along with his own persistent attributes, Roman’s commitment shows in everything he does. Pursuing skateboarding isn’t the only thing that brings him joy. Skim boarding provides Roman a break from skating and to clear his mind, he competes often with victorious results. This versatility mixed with a competitive commitment to skateboarding and skim boarding just goes to show that Roman just can’t be beat.
Keep up with Roman as he continue to climb up the ranks by following his website Thelordoftheboard.com
