FIRST they got tubed - now these radical rodents are ripping it up at their own skate park.

After achieving worldwide fame by teaching his pet mice to surf, Gold Coast man Shane Willmott has now trained them to ride skateboards.

These gnarly little dudes "drop the vert ramp" and get airborne on mouse-sized toy skateboards in a mouse-sized skatepark built by Mr Willmott in his back yard.

The furry daredevils even fly through a ring of fire, News Corp reports.

Mr Willmott, who has been training mice to surf for about 10 years, said he decided to teach them to skate because it was too cold in winter to take them to the beach.
