Dad Takes 9-Month-Old Surfing

In the "I can't believe it's true" news of the day, a dad took his 9-month-old son bodyboarding and recorded it on a GoPro for us all to marvel it. Jorge Tirado, 43, of Puerto Rico, is a surfer dude through and through and decided early on that his son will also share a great love for riding the waves. The incredible footage shows Tirado and his son riding into some fairly large waves, with the baby looking nervous the first time the cold water touches him. The baby is then all smiles as he starts to enjoy the ocean.

Obviously, not everyone thinks this is an awesome thing to do with an infant, and Tirado's video has been met with many critical comments. According to the Daily Mail, Tirado defended his actions by replying "My son's first try. Thanks to everyone. I encourage you to safely bring your kids to the ocean, after all the ocean is the where it all began."

What do you think, is this something you'd ever try with your baby?
