Water Skiing is a sport in which an individual is typically pulled behind a boat over a body of water, skimming the surface. Water skiing typically begins with a deep water start, with the skier crouching down in the water. When the skier is ready, the driver accelerates the boat to pull the skier out of the water.

Through all of the levels (beginner through advanced), one of the most common mistakes I see as a coach is skiers’ initiating the edge change with the upper body. This results in loss of outward direction, and in return causes the finish of the turn to be delayed.

1 Get up and comfortable on your slalom ski. Instruct your driver to drive straight. 2.Ski carefully to the outside of the wake, 35 to 40 feet from the midpoint of the wake. Avoid letting the rope go slack at all. 3.Bend and lean slightly forward, transferring more of your weight onto your board.


The Beginning Water skiing was invented in the United States in 1922 when Minnesotan Ralph Samuelson built the first pair of skis and was towed on them behind an outboard-powered boat. What Samuelson originated became an exhibition sport on both sides of the Atlantic in the 1920s and early 1930s.
