YouTube Skateboarding Twins Switch To Tennis

13 year-old fraternal twins Nic & Tristan have enjoyed an exciting past six years as world renowned skateboarders.

They are YouTube sensations whose skateboarding videos have now been viewed nearly 13 million times and are among the most-watched of all-time. Their skateboarding skills have led to many sponsorships, including a 4 year contract with Nike which they signed a day before their 8th birthday.



Their popularity has led to a feature film, much national media coverage/collaborations including:

  • Evening News with Katie Couric
  • ABC Nightline
  • Two Appearances on the Ellen DeGeneres Show
  • CNN
  • New York Times
  • Video with LL Cool J
  • Video with English Beat


      Here is their sizzle reel:

    They starred in their very own feature film "Nic & Tristan Go Mega Dega" which was released on DVD last year.

    This past January in a surprise move, they decided to give up skateboarding to focus on their new love ...tennis! This August 1st, the family moved from California to Hilton Head island for a change of pace and climate. Nic & Tristan are now training at Van Der Meer Academy. Since arriving, they have been having a blast, enjoying island life and training at the academy. Their YouTube tennis channel is www.youtube.com/puehsetennis.
