Congrats! Just wait till he will be pulling off tricks that his old dad can't do!
So I do have a side question for all you wakeboarding dads. Do you ever get a bit nervous about starting your kids off young? I started 2 years ago or so and I love it. So I definitely would want to pass the 'joy' down to my kids. But on the other hand, I think about it and I'm just not sure if it's a great idea. Lets be real here. Wakeboarding is pretty high risk when it comes to injury. I've played sports all my life and never been injured. Usually nothing but bruises and sore muscles. But 2 years wakeboarding and I've already had a few semi serious injuries. I don't know any wakeboarder that hasn't had some kind of reconstructive surgery or at the least some kind of semi-serious injury (muscle tears,rib injury,ear drum injury, knee/ankle injury, etc). The same can't be said for just about any other 'normal' sport. Injuries happen, but generally to the unlucky few. So I feel like I might be a little nervous about starting out my kids young and having them 5 injuries deep before the age of 16! What is everyones thoughts on it?
