You're never too young to bodyboard. In a new video that's quickly going viral, a man captured his son's first ocean bodyboarding experience.
Also, his son is only 9 months years old. As you can imagine, the son doesn't play much of a role in the mechanics of bodyboarding -- he pretty much just lays there as his dad propels them in and out of oncoming waves.
But the boy’s expression is priceless, going from confused to slightly scared to cautiously happy and back again. We can assume his young mind is trying to wrap its head around the experience.
It's not entirely clear where the video was shot, but based on the father's Vimeo page, it's probably Puerto Rico.
While some might want to paint this stunt as reckless and even dangerous, the son never appears to be in any danger. In the caption for the video, the man explains his close connection with bodyboarding.
"This is the best sport for you [sic] spiritual, mental and physical health," he says.
And for the rest of us, it’s a fun little distraction.
