That's 1 brave little kid.

Good thing at that age though is they know no fear, so they'll usually just pick themselves up and have another go. If his dad rides too, the kid is bound to look up to him and want to copy everything he does. I got a son, nearly 3 and he's the same...just wants to be like his dad and follow everywhere I go

I look at it from a different place. My son (11) rides w/ me and wants to do a lot of stunts,drops,ect. I let him do a lot up to 4 or 5 feet. He's a very good rider, but ol' Dad is the one who gets scared for him. I hold him back alot,guess I don't have the kahunas to let him go wild. One thing I have taught him is look at every stunt befor you do it,takeoff,landing,runout,ect. It's a learning process for all of us.

Heh, nice. My niece is 6 and she doesnt even know how to ride a bike w/o training wheels, let alone jumping with it.

I guess the less they weigh, and the shorter they are, they dont fall as far or get hurt as badly.

Yeah... he'll learn proper balance techniques sooner or later.. still quite impressive that he does what he does at his age. I would have never considered such things at that age.

Well 6" was a bit of an exaggeration, maybe the highest was around 10"

But comparatively, the kid doesn't kick my ass. He bends me over, spanks me twice and builds a robot that destroys me with a sword made of glue and paper clips.
