A 17-month-old Iowa boy is learning to water ski.
Watch Flynn Van Osdel as he skis behind his family’s boat in Davenport.
While it may not seem “normal” for a 17-month-old to learn to water ski, the Van Osdel family is part of the Backwater Gamblers Ski Show team, so starting early seems natural to them.
Flynn is officially the youngest member of the team, and his dad says he hopes water skiing will be part of his son’s life for years to come.
The Backwater Gamblers Ski Show team currently has more than a dozen kids under the age of five on the team, most of them were born into ski team families.
