Short clip of my son learning heel side jumps. This is his first year riding, about his 4th time. Sorry poor quality video from iphone but it's better than nothing.

Nice, that is great looks like he is doing really well. Something that helped my nephew was to have him cut all the way across the wake after he lands. It will help stabilize his landing and prepare him for wake to wake jumps and tricks. Tell him to learn how to do it riding switched, easier to learn now than later. He looked like he is a natural, espicially considering it was his 4th time.

He usually does continue on and jump off the other side however, he mentally convinced himself that he was going to actually make it wake to wake this time. Lol!

I love the fist pump! Shows the excitement of accomplishment, which is why I try to talk newbies out of tubing. Nothing like the smile on a kids face when he/she climbs back into the boat and says “I did it!”.

He's ready to surf for real I think. He understands the sweet spot and how to stay in the pocket now so tomorrow up to his feet he shall go. it will be no time til he's better than me. One can only hope.
