Kerr is the daughter of longtime Tour competitor and aerial wiz Josh Kerr, and to be sure, the apple has not fallen far from the board sports tree in that family.
“I’ll say, ‘okay,’ and just sort of sit there and cringe as she drops in, but sure enough she always pulls it off. ‘” At just 11 years old, Kerr is probably five or so years from joining the World Championship Tour, proudly carrying on the family torch.
Kerr has been splashing around on a surfboard since she was four years old, finally getting serious about the sport, which she’ll no doubt dominate one day, at the ripe old age of seven.
Who knows what growth spurt lies ahead, but in the coming years, Kerr has the foundation to be just about the best board sport athlete on the planet.
Kerr was born in Australia but has grown up in Carlsbad, California, which is about as close to heaven as you can get for a kid who loves surfing and skating more than just about anything.
The chances are pretty good that if you competed in a kind of board sport triathlon against 11-year-old Sierra Kerr you’d lose–badly. Don’t believe it?
