While some kids spend their time finger painting and playing with toys, other prefer to test the limits of gravity and go as fast as possible. With the popularity of the X Games, as well as the many action sports video games available, kids are beginning to pick up extreme sports at a younger age than ever before. Here are three kids who have found success in extreme sports at a ridiculously young age, going higher and faster than people twice their age.
