It's a delicate balance that every parent with young kids has to strike: Let them try fun, new activities, or say the dreaded, "No, that's too dangerous."
Wake-boarding is one of those things where that decision can be hard. On one hand, the sport can be dangerous and even deadly. On the other, if handled carefully, it can become a fun lifelong hobby.
This little guy is an example of the latter. Dad Rob Merback said this is his son's first attempt at a sport that his dad loves. You can tell Merback is being careful. The boat is going pretty slowly, and Merback makes sure his little one knows to hold on tight.
By the end of the video, it's clear he's having a blast.
So what do you think? Is this something you'd let your kid do? Would they have as much fun as this kid?
