Their runs are usually for about 5 minutes. They could go longer but they start laughing so hard at each other that they loose their concentration. They work well together and do a good job of coordinating their movements to control the board. Both of them started wake surfing last year but did not really get into it until this summer. A couple weeks ago, they wanted to try doubling up on a single board but I didn't think they'd even be able to get up. Low and behold, they dropped the rope and free surfed. It was a blast to watch.

Question to all of you with kids that wake surf. How are you starting your kids? I have been trying to start mine in the water, but they can't seem to dig their heels in hard enough to stand up on the board. 13 year old no problem but he wakeboards so he has a little more experience. 9 and 11 year old are struggling and I don't want them to give up. Appreciate your insight.

treiter,
My son Alec has been surfing behind our boat since he was 6(The 10 year old in the pic). He started on his stomach and elbows like a kneeboard. Now he starts to stand on the board in the water, as soon as the board gets under him I starts moving, he's so light he's standing before I even throttle up!
