Hey Dave, pretty cool, I didn't know you were having a kid also. We just had our baby girl the other day.. now I'm winding down the rush of the last few days, killing some time on WW so I had to click on this thread
I totally know what you mean, my parents had a 28' cuddy cabin bayliner moored out in Lions Bay growing up so I spent lots of time on the water, but never got a chance to strap on a board until my 20s. I can't wait to get my little girl on the boat and give her the experience of the lake life I didn't have. Maybe I'll see you out on the water with your son this summer.. he'll be good to go in a couple months for sure.
To the OP.. that is truly awesome.. finding a sport, any sport, that keeps your kid stoked and focused is the best. I can't wait to share your stoke in a couple years when I get my girl behind the boat for the first time. Keep on getting out on the water with him, sounds like that's the best bond you can have.
