There are so many milestones for a baby – walking, talking, waterskiing.

Wait – waterskiing?

In this video, a seven-month-old Australian baby named Ryder scores high on the cuteness and bravery scales by waterskiing.

The boy’s mother writes on YouTube, “He is not actually behind a boat he is just being pulled along the shoreline.”

Well, that’s a relief. As Ryder can no doubt tell you, you have to crawl before you can walk, so the same can be said for waterskiing.

It’s pretty cool stuff and if he continues to master it, we can only wonder how long before his folks decide to teach him snorkeling.
