The parents of 7-month old Ryder have quite a hit on their hands with a video that looks like the baby is water skiing.

In fact, Ryder is simply being pulled along the shoreline of a lake in Queensland, Australia. He has such good balance!

The video has earned both encouraging and disparaging comments on YouTube, with some applauding the parents for spending outdoors time with their son at an early age and some wondering about the child’s safety. Although he’s not actually “water skiing”, he appears to be holding onto the bar on his own, and 7 months is pretty early to learn watersports.

See for yourself:

    That baby is lucky to have parents like that… I believe if it scared him they wouldn’t do it… But he clearly looks like hes having the time of his life…. His parents have his safety down pack…. Keep living you guys far out
