While most babies his age are just getting their crawling legs, one baby in Australia is getting his sea legs, or ski legs to be more precise.
Ryder, a 7 1/2-month-old from Queensland, is a YouTube star after his parents posted a video of him learning how to water ski.
Though his head barely peers over the ski rail, little Ryder, strapped safely in a life jacket, stays upright above the waters of Lake Dyer in Queensland.
Just in case anyone think Ryder might be moving too fast, his parents posted an important disclaimer on YouTube.
“Please note: he is not actually behind a boat he is just being pulled along the shoreline,” they wrote.
The precocious tot won’t have to wait too long though. His parents say they will get him behind a boat, “next season, when it’s warmer again.”
