I'm all for cool barefoot pictures, and introducing kids to the sport to keep it from fading away in the wakeboard world we live in. As a father of a 6-year old who barefoots, this stunt should be left to two adults in my opinion.

If all goes well, cool picture. Too big of risk though for little reward.
Looks a bit dangerous to me but I don't foot and by no means passing judgment. However, I have never seen a graceful ending to a barefoot run--- how would you stop with a kid on your shoulder?

Short little face plant video I made for Instagram. This is what happens when you don't barefoot for a month...
