6-month-old water skier breaks world record

She may not be able to walk well, but she can definitely shred on the water.

6-month-old Zyla St. Onge from Polk City, Florida, broke the Guinness World Record Saturday for being the youngest person to water ski, traveling a total of 686.4 feet, according to ESPN.

The clip, which was released by the World Barefoot Center in Florida, shows Zyla sporting a pink life vest as she rips along the water to a crowd of supporters. 

On Friday, Zyla made her first attempt, but was only able to make it 62 feet. However, on her second attempt on Saturday, she was able to smash the previous record held by Parks Bonifay, who was six months and 29 days old. Bonifay broke the record in 1982, skiing 100 feet.
