AUSTRALIA -

He's not old enough to walk, but that's not stopping a 7-month-old boy from learning how to water ski.

Ryder Blair was recorded by his parents learning to ski on a lake in Queensland.

The boy's proud mother, Tamara, posted the video on YouTube, and the short clip has received more than 10,000 hits.

Tamara said her son is not in deep water and is being pulled by someone on shore, instead of a boat.

In the video, Ryder is seen smiling as he's pulled on modified skis along the shoreline.

"We used our GoPro to capture this moment," Tamara said. "[The] next step is to get him beside the boat next season when it's warmer again."
