Wahoo! today i surfed behind the boat and threw away the rope! My mom apparently uses a different method for getting up. A few weeks ago I was out with my friends on lake Sammamish. Everybody else was surfing and it looked fun so I tried too. It took a few attempts but I eventually got up. I only got up for about 4 seconds and didn’t even get over the wake, but it was fun. When we were in Moses Lake on the boat with my family I decided to try again. At first my mom got in the water to help me get up. I wanted to do it by myself and so she got back in the boat. I got up all on my own. I’ve been going almost everyday for a week. It is fun. I can now ditch the rope.
