Great looking girls.

Yes, they are quite expensive. But worth it.

NICE! buying one board setup for 2 girls to share is a great thing.

Come talk to me when they are 18 and heading to college. A new wakeboard will seem like buying a pair of socks by then.

(I wouldn't trade my 2 kids for anything however!) :D

Give 'em cash and tickets to vegas or even Cancun to save money on wedding... "eloping is an alternative"

Great stuff there! My daughter only knee boarded once and mostly just tubes with friends. My son is the one that wants a new board, new bindings, new jacket, new gloves, etc....

Roger Jersey Dave, they get more expensive as they get older (17 yo twin boys) but, they're more fun! Dave, what's that college thing? Your daughters look completely stoked!Someone once said to me "your children are beautiful and don't look anything like you!" I had to pass it on!:D

Victoria (right side) is five, Jenna (left of course) is nine. They see daddy wakeboarding and falling all over so they think they can do better. (they probebly will) Wife wanted them to start on a kneeboard but they wouldn't have it. They wanted a wakeboard to put up in the rack next to mine. My youngest has no fear and the oldest is kinda "blond", so we will see how this summer goes.

Any activity to spend time with the kids is a great activity. An activity you like too, just gravy! Bonding time on the water, on a boat. Life just does not get better that that.

My daughter was 9 when she started (11 now). She picked up the basics rather easy. My 15 year old son makes me look pathetic on a wakeboard.:D Good times.

sounds like a great summer ahead.

I'm hoping to train my little guy to be a spotter this year, but with his determination and love for the water, it is more likely I will become the spotter and him the skier!

Make that +2!

While my son is only 8 months old I figure if I get him interested in barefooting it allows him to use his natural equipment and limits that which I must purchase!!!

Make that +3

You have MANY years of good times ahead of you (until the boys start calling the house ;))
Take my word for it, enjoy their younger years while you can because they will be asking for the keys to the car before you know it.
