Max Abramov doesn't let anything stand in the way of the next cool trick.
After losing his legs when his bed caught fire as a baby, Max found a new home with his adoptive family in St. Petersburg, Russia.
At first, he used a skateboard just to get around. But after seeing how easily he mastered it, his mom decided to pair him up with a professional.
Now, the 10-year-old works with his coach, Pavel Mushkin, to nail complex moves.
Max's skating — and incredible resilience — even caught the eye of legend Tony Hawk, who called Max his new favorite skater.
The shout-out got Max a lot more Instagram followers and fans.
Max dreams of being a world-famous skater some day and maybe even competing in the Paralympic Games.
And although skateboarding isn't currently a Paralympic event, it just might become one, thanks to Max.
