He then moves towards her, holding her hand while she steadies herself before she finally takes the leap. 

The video has since received more than eight million views and been flooded with comments from fans praising the 10-year-old for being so brave. 

“So awesome to see her overcome her fear there and take that first step (and not fall face first like I would),” one person wrote.

Another added: “HELL YEAH YOU GO GIRL!! I’m 27 and I am too scared to do this lmfao she’s hardcore.”

The heartwarming video prompted others to share their own experiences of being a beginner and teaching their own children to skate. 

“So awesome. My daughter just started little drop ins… could use a better teacher though,” one person wrote.


Another commented: “Probably the most difficult and crucial thing of parenting: avoiding to transmit our fears and help them overcome their own.”

A third added: “You never ever forget the first time you drop in. EVER!!! Any skater knows what she felt.”


Hawk is widely regarded as one of the greatest skateboarders of all time.

He won 10 gold medals at the Summer X Games and in 2009 was inducted into the Skateboarding Hall of Fame at its inaugural ceremony.
