Sabre Norris, 11, was selected as a wildcard by surfing champ Sally Fitzgibbons to compete in the The World Surf League Sydney International Women’s Pro Qualifying Series on Thursday.
Ahead of the competition the little legend took part in a side-splitting interview in which she called her dad ‘fat’ and said she would spend her winnings on doughnuts, leaving Today Show team in stitches during a hilarious interview, quoted from Daily Mail.
She began the interview by telling the co-hosts how excited she was to be the youngest surfer ever awarded a wildcard into a major Australian event.
“I can’t believe that Sally gave me the wildcard, it’s like I can’t believe out of all the girls in the world she’s chosen me,” the 11-year-old said with a huge grin on her face.
“I feel really excited but I’m also a little bit nervous – sometimes I feel like I’m going to vomit when I get nervous,” she continued.
Sabre then revealed that even if she places last there’s a $250 prize, and she’d love to spend it on doughnuts.
When asked about her parents, the pint-sized grom revealed her dad used to be an athlete, but claims he is now ‘fat’. “My dad was an athlete but now he’s pretty fat.” she said.
Sabre then revealed that her dad ‘used to eat two litres of ice-cream a night’ and had to ‘suck in his gut for photos’ as the co-hosts dissolved into fits of laughter.
