WARRNAMBOOL'S Billy and Jesse Abrahams are hoping they can stretch their five minutes of national fame on Saturday into a full-time career.
The 13-year-old twins featured on ABC News24's Weekend Breakfast with an "edit" they compiled on skateboarding for ABC Open's 110%.
South-west-based ABC Open producer Colleen Hughson worked with the boys who were recently ranked the number one and two under 16 skateboarders in the state on a series of clips and interviews for the project.
Their mother, manager and sponsor Priscilla Abrahams films most of their competitions and training.
She said it was an exciting time for the family.
"You always hope it gets some coverage," she said.
"Any coverage is good coverage at this stage. But we didn't expect them to hit TV so soon."
Billy and Jesse spend most afternoons at Warrnambool's skate park and most weekends travelling to competitions or training at The Shed, an indoor skate park in Cranbourne, Ms Abrahams said.
"They're active boys," she said. "They've always ridden skateboards or scooters. They're just naturals and they work very hard, they practice and practice."
The brothers recently acquired Ringwood's Simply Skateboarding as their major sponsor and have been admitted into the South West Academy of Sport as its first skateboarders.
The sport provides a healthy dose of competition between the boys, their mother said.
"Say they're in a competition with 10 kids. It's not about the eight other kids, it's about each other," she said.
"But that's what gets them to where they are."
Ms Abrahams said she thought careers as professional skateboarders were well within reach for her sons, who practice bowl, vert and street styles .
