    Taking my son out on the Sea-Doo for the first time!

    I was finally able to take my son out on the Sea-doo for the first time this afternoon. He's 18 months old now, but he was born almost 3 months early and was only 2 pounds, 5 ounces when he was born. He spent 9 weeks in the NICU, but is doing great now and is a completely normal 18 month old. He was a natural on the water and had a great time. Every time I dropped him off at the dock he tried to climb back on! It's pretty cool to be able to share something I love with my little man.

    Thanks to WICKEDSEADOO for hooking me up with a new X-charger so I could get back on the water. Very standup guy to deal with and great communication.

    You will never regret the time you spent with your son; you'll only regret the time you didn't. Teach him to have confidence in himself and allow him to follow his passions.

    That's great Vikes! My youngest daughter was a pre me and was 3.2. It was scary as hell when she came home. She was soooo tiny. 25 days for her in neo-natal icu.
    Now she is 11, about 5'2", and rides a stand-up.
    Congratulations and best wishes. Great times for you both.

    He's a natural, looks like he's enjoying the hell out of it.

    Pretty close! He has red hair and fair skin so we want to make sure he doesn't burn. His Grandpa, who also has the same hair and complexion, has had some issues with skin cancer so we try to be really cautious with him. We use what looks like a glue stick on his face so that is why he looks so pale.

    Thats awesome. My little one turned two in February. She love riding as well. Everything is about timing. We go Yo The local lake around 9 am. Stopping at dunkin donuts first. We ride and fish on and off till 12-1230 and then gets tired. We ride one last ride cause if we don't she flips lol. She thenfalls asleep while riding cause she can't miss a thing god for bid then take the ski back while she falls asleep while riding put the ski on the trailer and drive home. We both win hahaha

    Love it! My boy (now 11) has been riding and enjoying other hobbies of mine with me for years. We shoot, jetski, 4wheel, fish, everything together.
