Britain's youngest ever medallist was born in Miyazaki, Japan but she now splits her time between Japan and California. When she's in the latter, Sky makes the most of the seaside location. 

"I think surfing helps with my skating – it’s pretty similar – so if the waves are good, I will surf for three to four hours,” she told The Guardian, revealing she wakes up every morning at 5am to hit the water.

After going to school in Orange County, she reportedly skateboards for up to three hours – so that's a whopping six hours of exercise a day!

Sky reportedly lives in Huntington Beach, which is also home to skateboarding star Christian Hosoi. Speaking of her home life, she told Daily Pilot: "Huntington Beach is awesome. It has really good skate parks and amazing waves. People are really friendly. It’s perfect for me. Christian has been a family friend and part of my family since I was very small."
