Since Auburn was born eight weeks early, his parents weren't sure if he'd be able to water ski so young, his parents said. But when he began to start trying to stand up on his own, they thought they'd give it a try — first in the living room, then in the backyard, Absher told ABC News.

“He's got himself a death grip on that thing,” Absher told ABC News. “His hands were not taped at all, he's actually holding on, he's got a real strong grip.”

BuzzFeed News has reached out to the Absher family for more on their son's awesomely early athleticism.
