    Awesome! Such a great feeling to see your kid make it up and have fun! My girl had her first slalom deep water starts on Saturday, and was standing on the ski well! And best thing is she had fun, )and is hopefully putting the wakeboard away for a bit! )

    Great to see!
    We had an excellent time this past Sunday, the water's finally 70F so the kids are interested. Sometimes a little sibling competition helps get the ball rolling.

    8 year old skied combo's off the boom.
    10 year old skied rec course on combo's
    6 year old got up on combo's off the boom - first try ever!

    Now everyone had to out-do the other and step up their game.

    8 year old skid combo's with short rope off the boom
    10 year old dropped a ski short rope off boom and got up on 1 ski on boom
    6 year old repeated combo's off the boom

    Also a Proud Dad!
