Water skiing is both a recreational activity and a competitive sport enjoyed by many throughout the UK. It 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.
There are various forms of the Water Skiing. Tournament – involving a combination of slaloms, tricks and jumping – is the classic form, but in recent years variations such as Kneeboard, Cable Wakeboard, Boat Wakeboard, Barefoot and the high-octane Ski Racing, at speeds of 200kmph, have evolved to cater for different tastes.
