How old were you when you scored your first keg? My guess, is that you weren’t still in nappies? A video has appeared on Vimeo of a dad taking his nine month old son out for a ride on his Bodyboard and paddling him into his first few waves. It is the first time we have ever seen a baby getting barrelled!
The video has been uploaded by Jorge Tirado, who took his son out for his ever experience in the waves and managed to capture the moment they got tubed together on a GoPro mounted on the Bodyboard. At first the baby appears to be quite shocked and frightened but when he is actually inside the barrel, it definitely looks like he was enjoying the moment.
There will no doubt be some people who consider this quite reckless and others who think it is a good thing to do and it will help the young lad to grow up with no fear of the water, but what do you think? Could this help the young boy grow up to be a ripper or was Jorge putting the baby at risk? Either way, getting pitted at 9 months old is no mean feat! The video of Jorge and his son in the tube is embedded below.
