My kids both got up and stayed up this past weekend also. Good feeling for me and also for them. My son even wanted to go again later in the day

My daughter is 10 and son is 8. They started about 2 years ago but never really took to it till this summer. We have learned to not wait till later in the day to ask them if they want to try. After they swam all day and were exhausted

My 8 and 9 YOs are really ripping it up this year for the first time.

Wish I had a picture, but we were running parallel to a late model $75k 'bu Wake Setter pulling a triple tube while my 8 YO was ripping on the wakeboard behind our old $10k PS (ski boat). Just priceless.

Epic summer in Seattle!

Great stories guys. I never considered asking my 7 year old daughter if she wanted to try. Just thought she was too small. So last night, as we were getting ready to pack it in, she said, "Daddy, can I see if the boots fit"; referring to her 10 yr. old sister's board. So she gets on the board and then wants to sit in the water with it. I thought, why not, so I pushed her out about 15 feet, told her "knees bent and arms straight", started pulling the line by hand and I'll be darned if she didn't get up. Put her out 50 ft. behind the boat, nice and slow, and up she popped. All those countless hours watching her brother and sister, she was ready!
