Wait, what, a 6-month-old?

The 30-inch Zyla, who doesn’t yet walk, skied across Lake Silver in Winter Haven, Florida, last Thursday.

Excuse me?

She stood on junior-size water skis that were attached to each other by wood. She gripped a handle bar attached to the skis.

USA Water Ski spokesman Scott Atkinson didn’t return a phone call and email inquiry about whether Zyla had set a youth record.
