Dad Teaches Baby To Surf, And She Instantly Becomes A Pro

You're never too young to learn how to ride the waves.

Kristofer Strong, of Clearwater, Florida, decided to teach his 7-month-old daughter, Madison, how to surf -- on the safety of his own carpet, that is.

"[My wife] Jennifer and I have always made every effort to go the beach; it's become a second home for us," Strong told The Huffington Post. "Madison, being born in Clearwater, naturally has sand and saltwater in her veins. At only 7 months, she's still learning life lessons, and becoming a beach bum baby is one of them."

Well, our day is officially made.

    My now almost 11 year old with her PawPaw who isn't with us anymore. He sat like that with her all night she had bad gas as a baby and her tummy was hurting. Lying like that seemed to help so he rocked her all night. One of my favorite pictures of my daddy and my baby.
