    Oakley’s Melbourne Skateboarder Renton Millar has been crowned the 2009 World Cup Skateboard Champion at the T-Mobile Extreme Playgrounds contest in Berlin, heralding a new era for Australian skateboarding. The 34-year-old Millar, who is known for his technical flip trick variations such as 360 flips and lives in Melbourne’s Elwood, started skateboarding in 1987, and has been competing on the World Cup circuit for the past 12 years. He’d been short of managing to break through to the magical top three until now, making his crowning a pinnacle achievement.
