    I tried taking some wakeboarding shots of my son's from a chase boat this weekend. This first set is of my youngest son doing what I believe is called a Tantrum:

    Thanks everyone for looking. I like shooting from the chase boat. It gives a different perspective.

    They want me to ride in an inner tube behind the boat and take pictures right in front and below them. I may have to get some type of water proof housing for that though.

    Thanks for the link Panos. Maybe I can do it now.:eek: :biggrin:

    They have a photographer who wakeboards with them. He shoots this way all the time. The big difference is that he gets alot closer. I'm still kind of nervous about that though.

    Awesome shots -- if wakeboarding is what it takes to get in shape and have muscle definition like your son does, I guess I'll have to learn wakeboarding ;)

    Great series, but the second one is a the stand alone photo for me. Great shot.
  14. Holy Cow! Fantastic shots you've pulled off here of pretty amazing physical feats! Your son really has this down pat! Great job in capturing all of his moves from start to finish. Wow!

    Very cool shots! Nicely done. Looks like he was having fun too!
  16. Hey Rex... These are a cool set of shots... Were you in another boat running parallel to him and did you crop these? Really well done....

    Thanks everyone. He has been pulling against a boat since he was 4 years old. They quit for a few years but bought the boat last year.

    The shots are cropped.
