Tamara Blair posted this video of her son on YouTube that shows him learning how to waterski, and it became a viral hit. Ryder Blair is just 7 months old and decked out in a tiny life vest, skiing through the water at Lake Dyer in Queensland, Australia.
It looks like baby Ryder is going pretty fast, but his mom let concerned commenters know he isn't behind a boat.
"Please note: he is not actually behind a boat he is just being pulled along the shoreline. Next step is to get him beside the boat next season when its warmer again."
