    Dangle a bodyboard and a surfboard in front of him... and let him make his own choice, pops.
    Good idea. This method can also help identify whether or not he's a loose wrist mo'

    Thanks guy's, it was a fun day for both of us. Last summer was the first time he really pushed to go. I was afraid that getting him in the water too early might have spooked him since he resisted for a few years. I let him call the shots during that time and he finally realized it was a lot more fun in the water than boiling on the beach. We had a session last year right before dark and were splitting this little waist high peak. It was probably the most fun we ever had together. When we got out he walked over and gave me a hug which is kinda hard to come by the older they get. Nothing better than hearing your kid call out an outside stomach high set in warm water with an empty beach and the sun going down behind the dunes .

    awesome! that reaction he had on the last wave is priceless. I give surf lessons all summer which is more of a novelty for tourists to tell their friends that they "surfed" while on vacation. Probably around 5% of the people i give lessons to have had the same reaction your son had - pure stoke.
