    I have to brag, although it took a long time for my son (who is 9 almost 10) to finally jump, he did last night!!! He had a grin from ear to ear! Tonight going out again and pulling him faster as he was trying already to jump the wake. Mind you it wasn't a huge jump, just got the front wing out of the water, but you have to start somewhere!

    This is a huge step because he was adamant that he was not going to jump...evidently, having a friend in the boat who on the second time ever on the ski, jumped it and it made his competitiveness come out! Yeah!!!!

    He couldn't believe it was so easy and so fun! I guess my ski time just got cut more! lol!

    You will be so proud! I am still jiggy with it! Last night he got a bit more out of the water and had two face plants but that didn't stop him. I had some anxiety about him tanking and not wanting to continue...but I worried for nothing! He is stoked to go to the Murray Mini and ski with Hutch doubles...(Hutch told him the last time he skied with him that he wouldn't ski with him again until he started jumping)!

    Good luck with your kids~!
