Okay, proud father moment here...

This summer my son was determined to learn how to slalom. We got him some Obrien Junior celebrities, which looked massive, but he had no problem with them. Here's a little video of his exploits...

Cheers,

Yuro

I guess he saw mom and dad do it enough that he figured it was easy... the wake behind the bu, even at 20mph is pretty easy for him too. Now all we need to do is get a course on our lake. We'll work on that next year. Thanks for all the responses! Cheers,

Nicely done.

Its always hard for kids to fight the temptation of looking down after dropping a ski...which usually results in a spill.

My little guy learned when he was 7 also now he is running the course and getting into 32 mph. I figure 2 more years and he will be better than I am.

That is one of the coolest videos I've ever seen posted on TMC. My wife and I unexpectedly welcomed our baby girl, Lacey, into the world on September 1st. Unfortunately, she was born 12 weeks premature, and is currently in the fight of her life in the NICU. I dream everyday of a moment just like the one portrayed in your video. I'm am confident that she's got the fight to pull through, and I will certainly keep your video in mind as she grows to love watersports just like her mom and I.

Thank you for sharing that special moment with the 'crew' family Rockon.gif

Science and determination is amazing, fight for her 1 battle at a time. Our oldest was an emergency C (pre-eclampsia) 8 weeks early, a little over 3 lbs. Lots of battles for him the first 6 months of life. Here he is on a wakeboard last month at age 10. He's a conerback in football too, and turning into a wonderful young man.

I am touched that this video has inspired so many people, thanks so much for the responses. Heiko, our son in the video, has a cousin who was also born premature in Calgary AB. He was also 12 weeks early, at just over 3 pounds. He spent the first few months of his life in NICU as well. I'm happy to say that he is 9 years old now, and a happy healthy boy. Although he doesn't water ski or wake board, he did try last summer (unsuccessfully but still fun). I wish you all the best in this difficult time, and my thoughts are with you. Here's to Lacey and her future on the water! Cheers,

Yuro

Cool video! Hats off to the little guy!! I watched it with my 7 month old daughter on my lap. I can't wait to teach her how to ski.

SpinXT, my thoughts and prayers are with you, your family, and your baby girl. I have faith that she will pull through and you will be the proud Daddy in the video in 7 short years!

God Bless!

With that level of determination, I would say pro level before he grows up all the way.
