I was pulling my 11 year old last night and he was working on his reverse back wrap. He stepped on the tail and fell toward the boat and his arm went through the handle. I had pulled the throttle back immediately which I always do on trick falls and he didn't get dragged too bad. We did take him to the hospital and he is okay just a little sore.
He was using our trick handle with a harness on it but we didn't have a release on the boat. I am going to do two things. First I am going to get a release that we will use for all trick sets. Second I am going to get a separate handle for him to use for hand passes that includes some sort of handle guard.
He is hoping to be feeling better to ski in our state championships this weekend. The doctor said he should be fine in 3-5 days.
