A few weeks ago, Kip wanted to try to water ski while we were at Maple Lake. The only skis available for our 8-year-old to try skiing with was adult sized skis. Denise did some land instruction with Kippy before she tried it in the water.
Let the boat pull you out of the water and keep your straight-back-chair position until you are all the way out of the water.
Hold your skis about shoulder width apart and don't let them wobble back and forth.
First, Kippy tried about 5 or 6 times with Denise giving her instructions in the water, but her legs were not strong enough to keep the large skis together. She kept a great attitude and after everyone warmed up, she wanted to try again.
This time, Steve and Lance went in the water with her and they tied the two skis together to help stabilize her.
Kippy, don't ever lose your willingness to persevere and keep on trying!
