Pretty sure we are done with cable.
My oldest son has been riding boat since he was 5 and started cable at 8 years old. He is no Parks but the kid has a decent bag of trick at 16 years old and can ride with any crew. He slaloms and barefoots as well/. So that's Cam.
Ian, now 14 has also been riding forever but never had the stoke of Cam and is limited to W2W a 180 and skate but has good fundamentals and enjoys riding (if I drag him out on the boat). He does not enjoy cable and only rides cable once a year at the Free For All when we all go.
Kaitlin is 12, been riding since probably 4 but prefers to wake skate and wont really do anything else. Cable skills are limited to making a successful lap.

This years injury report:
July 2017, Grassy Key Cable- Cam eats it on the slider two days into vacation and breaks his femur. $10,000 later, two vacation trips ruined and this years Colorado ski trip cancelled. Missed junior year football, wrestling and Lacross seasons.

May 2017 Ian misses on a 180 and takes an ugly back digger. 4 day headache, enters the Protocol and misses all of spring ball. Wont go near a board.

June 2017 Kaitlin misses a pop on her skate, strains her groin and is sporting a very unlady like scar up her left shin.
Hasn't rode since.

The wife no longer rides at all sighting lady problems.
I take a foot session now and again and have a low-risk set routine I do on the board but am terrified of smoking a knee.

Been a tough summer. Im not ready to sell the boat but it may soon be time to do just that.
My whole crew went down in one season.
