7½-Month-Old Baby Water Skiing: Child Abuse Or Good Clean Fun?


You be the judge. Things you should know, however: 1. This happened in Australia, and may be the least dangerous thing they tend to do there. 2. Mom claims he’s not being pulled by a boat. That won’t happen until he’s almost two. 3. Baby’s name is Ryder. 4. Kid can later say “I learned to water ski before I could walk” and be accurate.

From the YouTube description:

This is our son Ryder learning to ski at the age of 7.5 months at Lake Dyer, Queensland. Please note: he is not actually behind a boat he is just being pulled along the shoreline. Next step is to get him beside the boat next season when its warmer again. We used our GoPro to capture this moment.

Not impressed until I see him holding the bar one-handed, waving to the crowd with the other.

Yep, thanks Christian Post.

    this is awful! If that baby let’s go he will smash his head or worse!

    sara: SMASH his head? it’s WATER you idiot! you’re probably looking for the term, “smack”. The child, not a baby, is clearly having fun and has a firm grip…meaning, for his age, he knows what he’s doing or can follow simple directions. Maybe if YOUR child tried it, he/she WOULD probably “smash” their head…because the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree; i’m saying you and your children are imbeciles, fyi.
