The first 30 seconds of my daughter's first time up on a wakeboard.
Not sure you can see the expression on her face in the first pic...
...but after a minute she was much more comfortable.
My son and his first time on ski's. He went several minutes down on his butt like that. We kept coaxing him to stand up but he just kept shaking his head nooo.
Finally he decided to stand up a bit and was enjoying every bit of it.
Sorry the pics are so blurry.
