Got the 3 1/2 year old nephew on the board this weekend. He was pretty fired up. He is too small to muscle around the smallest wakeboard we have so it took some help but I think he's on his way! Can't wait to teach him his first spin

BTW, any of you parents out there who might have a kids board that you child has outgrown, let us know because Jared's mom and dad are on the hunt for a smaller board.

Ahhh that is too cute! He's swimming in that jacket too...what a cutie! One of these days when I have a *gulp* kid of my own...I hope to get them out there as soon as possible. Me being 5'2" and my hubby not terribly tall or big...thinking that making a football player isn't going to happen but by god I got a chance at a wakeboarder :-)

This kid is either going to be big into wakeboarding or motocross, or both. All weekend he either wanted to be in the water or riding around on the 50's with us. He is definitely making his uncle proud.

that is so AWESOME!! try and get him a smaller vest along with the board, but man that is the future of the sport for sure!! As far as motocross goes, PULEEEZ point him into the wakeboarding. Too many broken bones, accidents and trauma surrounding the motocross. I know I am opening myself up to some "moto flaming" but I stand by it.

That is so cute, there is your future pro wakeboarder or motocrosser. I hope one day my newphews too will wakeboard. I know you are very proud of him.

he can barely hold the handle, the thing is twice his height. they should make grom handles also.

Started by pulling him across the shore. He was able to get up but he couldn't turn the board very well. Behind the boat I was able to go next to him on a kneeboard and hold the tail. It was kind of tough but It helped him control the board so he could get the feel for it.

Ready for round two this weekend and hopefully it goes well again. Gramps is bringing a smaller board for him to use.

good luck! It looks awesome. We taught our kids how to ski by having my husband hold on to the back of the ski's to help stabilize while they get up.
Keep it up and let us know of his progress!
