This Two-Year-Old Girl Is Already A Skating, Surfing And Snowboarding Star

This Two-Year-Old Girl Is Already A Skating, Surfing And Snowboarding Star

A toddler in Australia is wowing the internet with her impressive board skills, having already conquered the land, sea and slopes by the age of two.

Young Coco, who is aged two years and three months, first got onto a board at the age of five months, when her mum Molly helped her 'roll along' when they were on a camping trip.

Since then, Victoria-based Coco has embraced skateboarding, skating and snowboarding, with her mum saying she just 'shines' when she's doing her thing.

Molly, 29, tells LADbible: "I've grown up on boards, I surfed and skated while I was pregnant and Coco was then born watching me on boards and she was drawn to it.

"First roll along on a board at five months whilst camping and the rest is history. She just loves giving anything a go."

The 'toddler mini shredder' even has her own Instagram and TikTok accounts - where she has more than 10,000 combined followers, who can see her skills in action in videos shared by her mum.

But despite her impressive following online, Molly maintains that Coco is just like any other child.

Molly continues: "She's a down-to-Earth, well-rounded kid.

"She loves ballet and dolls, she plays with trucks and cars, she loves nature and being out in the world learning and doing things. She's humble and is often recognised down the street."

Molly, a primary school teacher and photographer, says she likes to encourage her daughter, but says the passion all comes from Coco.

"I just try to offer her every opportunity whether it be a skill, or an experience, and then let her follow her interests based on what I have offered her," she says.

"She has a passion for board sports; She just shines when she's on a skateboard and loves it.

"She would ask to go skating everyday when she just turned one, she knew what she wanted and I facilitated it.

"I found a professional skate coach who would teach someone at such a young age and I knew she was in good hands and got to excel at what she loved - their bond is incredible.

"We both have strong beliefs that you do things that make you happy and she can stop anytime, also highly regard safety, she knows how to put on her safety gear and how to fall properly, she's never been hurt."

And it looks like Coco has no plans to stop with her hobbies - not even letting a pandemic stop her.

Molly adds: "She's had to spend most of this year in lockdown and took it like a champ, used our own skate room but misses the skateparks and her skate mates.

"I'm taking lessons to catch up to her so we can skate together."
