9-year-old girl can’t ride a bike, but she can do a 540 on a skateboard…finally

May 30, 2014 By Joey

Since her family doesn’t have a garage, Sabre Norris’s parents opted to get her a skateboard instead of a bike. She’s just 9 years old, but the young Australian was determined to master an advanced skateboarding trick.

Norris resolved to learn a maneuver she saw skateboarding star Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins do online, a 540. As motivation, she placed a rock on a table each time she failed to land the trick.

The girl fell over and over again and continued piling rocks as she attempted to land the difficult trick, but on her 75th try…

Afterwards, young Norris said, “I still can’t ride a bike, but I can do a 540!”
