The pictures are of my father-in-law wakesurfing for the first time. Though his form isn't the greatest he got up on the first try. Did I mention he's 78 yrs young?

Awesome for him. Fixed your photo post. Please don't be offended.

Fantastic! At 78, I'm hoping I'll know who I am and still feed myself. Our family has a history of going downhill at an early age so I am celebrating my golden years right now.

Thats cool. I taught 4 people last weekend and all were up in 2 tries. Thats how I teach getting up on a wakeboard also. They get the feel with the surf but not the hard hit. Works really well. Once they feel the motion of getting up, it is essentially the same with the wakeboard.
