It’s one thing to see a little kid skateboarding. It’s another to see a stereotype-defying little girl skateboarding. And it’s entirely another to see Paige Tobin.
Paige is a 6-year-old Australian who doesn’t look like the typical skateboarding fanatic. In one of her recent videos that have gone viral, she’s decked out in a pink tulle party dress, rainbow-striped socks, and a leopard-print helmet. Certainly not the typical attire of a skateboarder about to drop into a 12-foot bowl. But she is, and she makes it look so effortless.
In her recent viral video, the young lady fearlessly stands at the top of the 12-foot drop. Without skipping a beat or showing any hesitation, she nails the drop, better than many grown men can do. She’s commanding the whole bowl, and you really get a sense of how young she is when the video switches to a wide shot, and we can see just how small she is. But, it’s her unwavering confidence that makes this video, and this young lady, something really special.
