Alana Smith, age 12, lands 540 Mctwist

While most 12-year-old girls are busy throwing imaginary tea parties or buying Justin Bieber albums, Mesa, Arizona’s Alana Smith has been putting in time in a 12 foot vert ramp, turning heads with her phenomenal ability.

Over the weekend Alana thrust her name into the skate world spotlight by landing a 540 Mctwist, making her only the second female in history to land the inverted flip variation. Lyn-Z Adams Pastrana, wife of motocross racer Travis Pastrana, was the first back in 2009. The fact that Alana pulled off this feat at age 12 begs the question, what will she be landing when she’s old enough to drive a car?
