Sure, but can she pull a McTwist over a helicopter?

I can believe it, and I wasn't around to observe her progression.  At least she didn't say "Oh my God".  That seems to be the default utterance in every situation.

/Her skateboard skills are better than mine, so kudos to her

But can she eat 10 crackers in under a minute?

I bet her dad kicked her onto the flat bottom all the time for her to get that good.

Dang, I wish I could do that..

The bigger story is a 9-year-old that can't ride a bike.

She's a little short on the landing, and she doesn't really get over the coping, BUT:

She took a pretty good slam there, so it totally counts.

Did they rent out the park or are there so many ramps nowadays that every kid gets their own? I'm quite jealous and screw the bike, she got the better of the two.

Nice to see someone of the appropriate age riding a skateboard rather than some 28 year old bro

When I was around that age, my dad built me a half pipe like that in our back yard. It was awesome!....for about 2 weeks. Dad used untreated plywood he found lying around and it rained a lot in Washington state. I was just learning how to skate and I can remember going down and hitting a warp in the wood sending me head over heels. This was back in the 80's so no one wore helmets, luckily I landed on my shoulder and just suffered a few minor bruises. Never used the ramp again after that, and you could almost watch it deteriorate over the weeks. Around week 4 the nails started to pop out, and week 6 is when holes started forming. That thing was truly a deathtrap.

I could ride a bike at 6 but still couldn't drop in with out eating dirt. let alone do a 540 like that.

I bet she plays baseball like a girl.

Umm, great story and all, and  I don't want to be this kinda guy, but plywood? ... to make a half pipe? I mean, plywood, to bend to do a 180 degree half circle?... umm plywood?

Plywood has some give, but I don't see how it can be made into a halfpipe in large sheets. and small tiny pieces would have so many possible bumps.... i just don't see how it was even done in any possible sane way.

No, she's a little girl so her default utterance was to scream like she had a whistle stuck down her throat.
This is why I'm getting my boys snipped.
