Move, er roll, over Penn Badgley: You may have the moves on your skateboard, but you're not the only one.

After training mice to surf, Australia resident Shane Willmott has now gone on to teach them to ride skateboards. If you take a peek into his Gold Coast backyard (more like skatepark!), you'll see the rad rodents tearing through air and even rings of fire on mouse-sized skateboards.

"They love it," Willmott told Today. "Mice are built to surf and skate because their center of gravity is so low.

"When they do fall off, they want to get straight back on board."
