I don't surf but isn't the point being able to stand and balance (which comes after walking) ?

Nathan Carroll was the winner of the USA National surfing championship when he was around 15 years old. He then went on to professional surfing for a living when he turned 18 and traveled the world for the next 5 or 6 years going in all the big contests.

That's cool. But my question was wouldn't you want the child to be able to stand and balance before starting them off on a board ?

Nope. Tim created a true Aquaman with that boy the way he did it.

That is awesome I have to say. I tried teaching my kids some things at very young ages and some stuck better than others. My daughters are the better pistol shooters of the lot and I'd hate to see what my 30 yr old would do to a guy in a knife fight.

I started my son riding without training wheels at 3. He was on his dirt bike without training wheels at 4.

POCO here can already see a fault or loss. Had one the other day where POCO showed a lost leg and they came and pulled the meter until the problem was fixed.
Turns out the meter base needed replacing. They didn't remotely turn it off but it did show on their system.

Congrats on being a Grampy Mikey!
I've got 8 and another on the way!

ALL FROM ONE DAUGHTER!!!

A few months ago I changed a meter base because the power company was getting a high temperature reading back from the smart meter .
From the looks of the meter base it was a correct reading .

So they do have it built in to self diagnose. Good.
