– Parker 'Parks' Bryant became world's youngest wakeboarder
– Kid is only 6 months old, but he's already got some skills
– His parents were training him to hold the balance and grip tightly
Parker 'Parks' Bryant from Singleton, New South Wales, Australia is now world's youngest wakeboarder as he beats Zyla St Onge from USA, who is only 17 days older. The kid is only 6 months old, but he already has something to show the world.
Video was taken on Runaway Beach on the Gold Coast. Boy is not yet able to walk, but he evidently knows how to wakeboard. His parents say that they were training the child to hold the balance and grip tightly.
Parker was wearing special footwear and a life jacket to stay safe during his ride, but his father admitted they were nervous about boy's safety anyway.
Parker 'Parks' Bryant was named after Parks Bonifay, American professional wakeboarder, who is world's youngest waterskiier. He was 6-month-and-29-day-old boy then.
'There's no plans to become a wakeboarding champion yet, but we definitely plan to have another go.' — Mr Bryant said to the media.
