Dad Takes Toddler Daughter Surfing On His Back
Here’s an adorable video I found on the I Love Surfing Facebook page.
There’s not a lot of information.
The caption just says, “What happens when it’s mom’s day off and your dad is a kick ass surfer!”
I know all the hyper-safety nuts will go nuts.
Where’s the little girl’s floaties?
What if she falls off?
Seems like dad and daughter have this one down.
I know my brother, sister and I learned to swim in the ocean waters of Santa Monica. I can’t ever remember having a floaty or vest on.
There’s something about learning to swim in rough waters with waves and riptides that teaches a respect and ease in the water. No false sense of security a backyard pool can lull you into.
My brother and his boys still surf in the waves off the coast of San Diego.
I’m hoping he gets a big kick out of this.
