    This past weekend, we went to a beautiful peninsula called Buzios. We happened to be right near the same beach where my daughter learned to surf a couple years ago. On Saturday, my almost 7 year old son decided he was ready to give it a go.
    He got up on his first wave and after a half hour lesson, was hooked. He wanted to go for another half hour so I rented him a board and took him back out at the spot where he'd just finished his lesson. Dude probably got 12 rides in an hour, fell off, laughing his head off and was just plain stoked.

    There's no choice but to be stoked when you have FPE for a dad! Looks like a big wave charger to me.

    Dude, Yes! :dude: Genuinely stoked for you and your boy. Can't imagine how tired you must be after having your Heart explode over and over again for a couple hours. Right on brother. Right. On.

    Great story Eric. Anxiously awaiting the warmer weather here in NJ so my daughter can take some lessons. She has been asking me all winter. can't wait. My son may be a little longer. But I never wanted to pressure them. When they are ready then I will encourage whatever they want to do.
