Shrewsbury – Lucas Moelk, 4, spent many of his days hanging around a skatepark even before he could walk. The main reason is because his father, Jason, owns Subliminal Skatepark in Shrewsbury. Lucas has become one of the youngest skating sensations.
“It was never forced on him,” Jason said. “He watched other skaters and just wanted to do it.”
The preschooler rides pretty smoothly around the skatepark, as seen in his YouTube video, which so far, has accumulated over 500 views – and it's only in its first week on the web.
“He's always played around with a board, but this past summer, he really picked it up,” said his dad, who is also a lifelong skater.
Lucas is starting to land some tricks, consistently executing ollies, kick turns, and drop-ins on smaller ramps. Local skate enthusiasts expect the boy to have a very bright future in the sport.
