Dont get much better than that!!
I remember when my daughter went outside the wake for the first time (she was 9). It was big deal for her as well as me!! I know you had a grin a mile wide! I got so amped up I did a huge power turn..whoopps my bad but my daughter just got outside the wake for the first time and I couldnt wait to get back to her. She was pretty excited to say the least. She feared getting outside the wake on the tube and this was about her 5or6 time on the wakeboard.

Here is my little Ellie 4 years old, 37 inches tall, 34lbs, first love is wakesurfing but wakeboarding may be a close second.

What in the world is that in the water @ 0:41? It looks like a beam or something? What gopro accessory did you use to attach the camera to your board? This is great!

My husband used the GoPro Surf Mount. It is a old tree that has been in the lake forever, luckily it sticks out and we saw it. We were being extra careful I've already ruined one prop :).

Emma (6 year old) wakeboarding. Second attempt at wakeboarding. Working on her edging and crossing the wake for the first time.

That is good stuff.. I have a mount that may offer some great footage of the kiddoes.. hoping to get it out there one of these days..

I could try and make one for you to test out sometime.. it looks like you get out enough to give me some good feedback..

That is awesome. I need to get my son out there with us soon. He'll be 3 next season. Cool to see the kids getting out there and enjoying it. Start them young and they will do it for life. That's how I got hooked, my mom was pregnant with me water skiing.

stxr_racer 12-04-2013 5:16 PM

So Regan is super sick. Thanks for sharing.

JustBoat 12-05-2013 7:28 AM

How fast do you pull a 3-4 yr old wakeboarding?
Diana- How fast are you pulling her? I have a 3 year old and all we do is surf, but I want him to learn to wakeboard.

Thanks,

Rob

The most fun I have had in a long time was the first time all the kids and I rode in the same day. Here they are at 9, 5, and 3. It is hilarious watching my 3 year old coming out guns-a-blazen but he can't even get the rope tight when he rides he is so little and can't make it over the wake, he leans so hard but just can't get enough momentum to carry him over. I pull the girls behind the big boat at 18+ because thats about the slowest it will go without plowing.
