Well... I think its pretty cool.

My 6 year old drew this over the weekend. Its actually a drawing of my cousin's 195 (the flower on the back is the give away) instead of our 205 but hey the kid's got talent.

Cool picture....

Does the 6 year old ride yet?

Not too early to learn.

It looks like he has interest in it.
I have a five year old that I hope will learn the knee board this summer.

I think its supposed to be a flag. No beer on the boat on the lake. DUI laws are pretty tight in California.

He is totally interested. He has been up on with his mom on our other cousin's barefoot boom, but we havent been able to get him up on his own behind the boat.

He wanted to try our last trip but the water was damn cold. Didn't stop me from going out, but no one said age makes you smarter.

Probably this next trip he will try again. I think this is the year he does it.

SDMC; Very nice! My daughter and I made a clay exhibit not too long ago that was fun!

Get a good print, frame it and hang in prominent part of your house! Will be rewarding to many and you will surely get another!

I'm almost 25 and I still can't draw a decent stick figure. You may have the next Vincent Van Gogh on your hands. That would make for an early retirement for mom and dad.

Thanks for the comments guys. Pierce (the artist) got a real kick out of the fact that all you saw it and had nice things to say. Made his day. You should have seen his face light up.

SD, good stuff. What wakeboard are you going to try to teach him on? I just got my boom because trying to teach my 6 year old daughter to ski with deep water starts at the end of last year was not working and boarding can't be far behind. Gotta teach them to ski first so the sport isn't totally lost.

We have a 2004 Gator Chopper 125 and then some Liquid Force Micro bindings. Its small for the kids, but should last them until they know what they are doing.

As an aside, skiing or riding behind the boom is by far the easiest way to get them to learn. So far it has worked with almost every kid we have done it with.
