Have You Seen This? 8-year-old skateboarder shreds

Posted September 22

A KID'S WORLD — As a full-grown adult I swear it's a struggle for me just to stay on my feet at times. That means when I was a pudgy 8-year-old I basically just crawled everywhere because my balance was as solid as a toddler with an inner-ear infection.

OK, I wasn't that bad, but Sky Brown is the ultimate 8-year-old. The only proof you really need is to watch this video of Sky tearing it up on her skateboard. How good is this girl? Good enough to be invited to participate in the Vans US Open Pro Series.

If that wasn't enough she also is a competitive surfer and probably a heart surgeon, because at this point why not.

Most of us were trying to not be the most obnoxious human being on the planet as we entered out awkward stage when we were 8. Instead, Sky is a pro skateboarder and infinitely cooler than basically all of us. Keep it up, Sky.
