Nice shots Brian.
Has she tried a wakeboard yet?

She mentioned it. Although I'm a little leary forking out cash for something she isn't going to use, i.e. skis.

that's why I brought up the idea of passing along/renting equipment along to these other TMC families with younger kids... we're gonna have them.

Brian,
great kneeboard pics

how does she start out?
belly, knees, stand?
beach start?

Hear ya'
It would be nice if you could borrow one to try for a bit.
Looks like she'll do fine on it.

She's got great balance to be able to stand up on the kneeboard. if you buy her that board she will be hooked and never look back.

Brian--She starts on her stomach and than climbs up to her knees (deepwater start). To get onto her feet she transitions from to knees to one foot on the board and one knee. Then she lets go of the rope with the hand opposite of the foot she already has on the board. Next, she applies equal pressure with her foot and hand to balance the board and transitions from the knee to having both feet on the boar and one hand. Last she slowly stands up.

She is so light it's easy for her. I've tried a few times and just eat it.

Dude,

I got a $25 1st generation Connely Wakeboard on E-bay so I wouldn't have to fork out a couple hundy on a dust collector.

Look for an old Hyperlite or CWB that has the velcro straps that go over the top of the foot and a bungee that goes over the heel.

You should be able to pick one up pretty cheap and you'll be able to see if she's interested in learning.
