Sabre Norris is a 9-year-old surf and skate prodigy and a name you will want to remember. Granted, it’s not an easy name to forget, but this is an Australian girl who is destined to be the first athlete to rule both sports.

In the above clip, a collaboration with Australian singer (and “Bra Boys” movie director) Kid Mac, Sabre attempts to become the third female in history and the first Australian female to land a 540. She is successful, but only after attempting the same trick 100 times a day for over a month.

“I had heard of Sabre’s attempt and just thought it was a great, uplifting story,” Macario De Souza, a.k.a. “Kid Mac,” told GrindTV. “Her dedication is incredible, and it felt like her quest fit the song perfectly.”

Sabre’s father, Justin, is a swimmer who won bronze at the Sydney Olympics and whose passion for surfing has fueled Sabre’s passion for that sport. “Her talent is unbelievable; she is by far the best 9-year-old surfer I have come across,” said And King, Surfing Australia’s Head Coach. “Her dedication is also unrivaled. On the first night of a camp here at the High Performance Center, she wrote some goals in paper and stuck it above her bunk bed. The goals were to have won an X Games gold medal in vert skating and be the surfing world champion … by the age of 16. I have absolutely no doubt she will achieve those goals.”
