Well, my 6 year old has been all over me to ski and it warmed up enough to get her in the water Saturday. She is hooked. Every time we pulled into a new cove, she would ask if it was her turn. Still gotta work on the form and get her on one, but it is a great start. This is the real reason to get out of bed in the AM.

Excellent Pics! Nothing better than a family together on the water........ :D

The form comes in no time at all!!

Great idea with the boom!! I was thinking about how to work with my 3.5 year old (maybe not this summer!) on helping him get used to skiing and boarding. The boom looks like the way to go.

He already has tubing figured out........ :o

That is great. A little off topic here, but how much does a boom run? I'd really like to have one handy for teaching.

I got it on e-bay, but I saw one in Shadetree power sport (I think that was tha mailer) for $349 and I think shipping was free.

Congrats.

That is what I did with my twin daughters when they were 5.

They are now 20 and still skiing. It is a great lifestyle.

Keep up the good work.

That's great, Stevo! Great pictures. This may be the summer for some of our nieces, age 4 and 8. We'd have taught the 8 year old by now, but she doesn't get out on the water with us much.

Awesome shots, I wish someone would've taugh me to ski at a much younger age. My mom's family was huge into it, but no one thought to teach the younger kids. I didn't learn until I was like 18.

Very cool. :cool: I bought a barefoot boom primarily to teach my daughter the same thing. I just showed her the photo of your daughter as some encouragement.

BriEOD,

I will have to tell my daughter she is now the poster child for aspiring young skiers to be. I too purchased it for teaching purposes. Worth every penny.

I purchased my boom used off ebay in 98 when I bought my boat and there is no telling how many (probably 100's at this point) kids and adults I've taught to ski with it and only have had one bad experience and that was when working with someone who said they were a good barefooter (absolutely not true) that wanted to try something they'd seen me do and they broke their arm in the process.
