Making the old man proud

Posted by Ken Campbell September 2, 2011 0 Comment 575 views


He won’t be five years old until January, but he’s been telling me for months now that he needs his own paddleboard. As he’s gotten bigger – and heavier – I’ve begun to see things his way.
We found an old windsurfer for free (does anybody even do that windsurfing thing anymore?) and got him out on the water a couple nights back. He’s a natural, popping up and paddling off on his own right from the start. He’s still a little nervous around the big boat wakes and I give him a tow when the current is strong, but I expect he’ll be surfing by next summer.
Pretty sure I couldn’t be more proud.
