9-Year-Old Skater Girl Sabre Norris Lands 540 For First Time (Video)

When you name your child Sabre, there’s a good chance that they’re going to be pretty cool. Nine-year-old Sabre Norris from New South Wales, Australia, proves that.

She’s the daughter of Australian Olympic swimmer Justin Norris, and she’s already skateboarding and surfing competitively. Sabre recently landed her first 540 air on a halfpipe.

Sabre told The Berrics, a skating website, how she got her start.

“My skating all started because I wasn’t allowed to get a bike because we don’t have a garage. So my mum bought us skateboards instead,” Sabre said. “I’ve been skating for about 3 years.

“My favorite trick is a 540. I watched Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins do it on the Internet, and I just had to do it. I did some 720s too.”

She also said that she landed the 540 on her 75th attempt. She still doesn’t know how to ride a bike, though.

Sabre has been wowing skating and surfing judges in Australia, and they think she has the potential to be the next big thing. One surfing competition organizer even told the Newcastle Herald that she’s “frighteningly good.”
