Willow Smith is an ace on a surfboard.

The pre-teen showed off some of her cool moves as she cruised the waves  while on vacation with her mother Jada Pinkett Smith on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai.

With her techno purple-grey hair slicked back, 12-year-old Willow was no fish out of water as she manuvered her green board with the rolling waves.

Willow obviously has done this before and stayed balanced on her bare feet with arms extended wide.

 

She was wearing a cute black two-piece suit with white strings and a big smile as she made her grand finish in the choppy whitewater.

The Whip My Hair singer was back to her dark hair, which was pulled back in a tight ponytail so it wouldn’t get in her eyes.

Willow wore an intense expression as she crouched down a little on the board with arms wide in serious surfer stance.

While 41-year-old Jada sunned on the beach with friends, Willow preferred to spend most of her time perfecting her surfing skills.

Willow did allow herself to spend some with her singer-turned-actress mother Jada.

Will Smith recently revealed to Metro some of his secrets to being a good parent.

‘We don’t do punishment,’ he revealed. 

‘Our concept is, as young as possible, give them as much control over their lives as possible and the concept of punishment, our experience has been—it has a little too much of a negative quality.’

Willow, as it turns out, is quite the independent young lady with her own blossoming music career and fashion tastes.

The Fireball singer turned heads at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards last month’s with her spikey hairdo and a textured white dress that featured caramel coloured detailing. 

Willow was initially cast to play Annie in Big Willie’s planned remake, but later dropped out due to her busy Whip My Hair tour.

In February, Beasts Of The Southern Wild star Quvenzhane Wallis was cast in her place.
