Jan. 31 (UPI) -- An 11-year-old Virginia boy earned a Guinness World Record for the most ollies on a fingerboard in 1 minute.

Julian Kuczma of Chesapeake said he was introduced to fingerboards -- miniature skateboards designed to be manipulated by the fingers -- by his friends and some YouTube videos.

"I started trying to do tricks on them and picked it up pretty quickly," Kuczma told Guinness World Records. "I would fingerboard just about everywhere I would go; at school during lunch, at home, and even when my mom forced me to go shopping with her and my sister."

Kuczma decided to challenge the Guinness World Record for the most ollies on a fingerboard in 1 minute. An ollie is a trick where all four wheels of the board leave the ground and come back down to land.

Kuczma successfully broke the record with 128 ollies in 1 minute. He said he is considering taking on more fingerboarding records in the future.
