David Small Barefoot Clinic in Washington State with Big A and his goats :)

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

Adin Danneker put this clinic on on his private lake in Olympia, Washington.

Adins perfect water ski lake


On Adins lake there are two decent sized turn islands which were getting a little over grown so on one of the days where it was a little windy we took some time out, took an hour drive and bought a couple of goats. The kids at the lake named them Jerry and Dude.

The transportation of the goats to the turn island on the lake


Once back to the house we transported them across to the islands where they proceeded to eat non-stop and get visits everyday from the kids that live on the lake.
Adin built his house and has an amazing set up with his boat slip leading straight from his garage to the lake and the boats already set up and hooked up to his tractor in the garage so its as easy as opening a door and backing it in!! Also in the garage is a big flat screen and a Audi R8 to take out on the few days a year there its not raining in Washington 😉

Adins toy for when its dry out :)

We had a tournament the weekend after the clinic so Adin and I were working on trick runs and trying to clean up slalom so as not to get cut. Adins multiple turns at the end of the week were great and he skied up a storm in the comp with a high 5000 point trick run, nearly equaling his PB in slalom and landing most of his inverted jumps!!
Jerry Kanawyer came to the clinic and we continued on from what we were working on while I was at Jerries place. He got better and better at his surface turns as well as figuring out some new slalom techniques. We jumped a bit while at Adins and Jerry is getting a good inversion on a 10 foot line which is very similar to a long line jump.

Jerry Kanawyer getting ready for battle ;)


The best way to learn the inverted style is directly on a Barefoot International boom (lifted very high) until the technique is perfected and there is no fear in the skier coming in to the ramp. If it doesn’t go as planned go to the WBC shoe skis and start on these. Then a it is best to have a slow progression from the boom by going on just the V of the handle. After this you just inch the line out until on a 10 or 15 foot line off the boom.
Jerry also skied great at the tournament in all 3 events, and did great which was nice to see.
Doug Jorden also came over and did a lot of Barefoot jumping as he is also learning the new inverted jump technique. Doug jumps a good distance on the long line but in a traditional style and when trying to invert long line he has a small mental block and pushes the handle down. What was done to try to overcome this was to keep him on the boom but extend the line further and further out until he was jumping on a 45 foot line! Impressive!

I was there for 4th of July where we went to Lake Silverado in Adna for some skiing and fireworks which was better than anything public we could have traveled to!!!

Had to get a patio heater going as the sun set on Lake Silverado while we waited for the fireworks for the 4th of July celebrations.


Val Shinn came and had a day in sunny Washington where she worked her backwards position as well as sorting out her slalom. Judy Myers who is 68 came and skied with us for a few days. Even after a recent injury and a couple of months out came back and was working on her front one foots and her backwards position as well get getting her edging out of the wake sorted on the long line.

John Macdonald, Judy Myers, Claudia and Dave Landon and myself (David Small)


Claudia and Dave Landon came with 82 year old John Macdonald for a day. Claudia worked on her front one foot and toe hold position as well as getting her first backwards one foot on her feet (which Dave was jealous of). Dave was also working on his front position as well as his backwards one foots which looked good on the WBC shoe skies but he was a little slower than Claudia on transferring it to his feet.

Dave Landon sporting the head zone helmet


Im sure Claudia did he one foot at the end of the day so that Dave didn’t have a chance to get back out there to try to equal her… great marriage rivalry. John Macdonald is going strong and at 82 years young is an amazing skier!! He skies no problem skiing on the boom or long line and was working on butt riding out of the wake so he could stand in calmer water.

82 year old John Macdonald doing his flyer at Lake Silverados competition


With the help of the head zone (turned all the way up..lol) he figured out how to get out of the wake and nearly did a full wake crossing which would give him a US record for his age division!! GOOOOO JOHN!!

82 year old John, myself (David Small) and 68 year old Judy Myers on the start dock

Jay Leuek had a day skiing with us where he learned his back toe holds and step position as well as sorting out his front position… he found that byb not plowing it made his life a lot easier to progress.

Jerry Kannesky doing some dry land practice


Jerry Kannesky came over for a day and a half and its great to have him around. He is extremely passionate about barefooting and brings a lot of energy to the boat! In just a day Jerry got his back to fronts feet to feet on the long line, all 4 turns on the boom on his feet in one pass and the step ones and hop on the boom!! He hadn’t jumped much before and got out there on the boom and in a couple of jumps was doing some great inverted jumps and landing pretty much feet to feet. Amazing!

Jay showing us great form on a back toe hold on the WBC shoe skis


Cheers Adin for having me back out to your pad dude!! I always have a great time over there and Ill be looking forward to seeing you over at Nationals!!

David Small California Barefoot Water- ski clinic

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

I arrived in to San Fransico on the Saturday where Mr Jerry Kanawyer himself picked me up .  What I had forgotten was that it was his birthday so he didn’t get a happy bday straight away from me so I apologize for that Jerry.  Jerry has been on the US barefoot Water ski team for years and has always been a great US team player!!  His nickname is Flipper which for those of you that don’t know where it came from….  He is one of only a few people in the World that do all 3 flips in their trick runs….. the wake to wake, wake, and regular flip!!  Rather him than me.

Jerry Kanawyer flipping

Jerry lives in Brentwood on one of the best ski lakes I have been to (it could be a couple hundred feet longer if you wanted to be REALLY picky).  It is died blue to stop the weeds growing in there which also makes the lake look like a swimming pool and with it been located in California it’s as warm as a bloody swimming pool as well…… perfect!!

Diablo Shores

Jerry got in to a car crash a few years ago and if he take a good hit he gets a head ache so he was skiing with a helmet on but when looking on the net we found something better…….. HAHAHAHA! You crack me up Jerry bird!!!

Jerry sporting his head gear

While I was there Jerry made great headway on his front and backwards one foot slalom as well as figuring out the line step position one foots and hops as well as working on breaking his old school bad habit of stepping through on his surface turns. Jerry is also in the process of learning invert jumping which he is doing great on and is always good fun to teach.

Jerry bringing the landing gear down after an inverted jump

Andy Conway was there for 4 days and work a lot of slalom and line step position one foots as well as trying to sort out his surface turns.

7 year old Jackson showing us all how its done

Early in the week we had a 7 year old boy called Jackson that had beaten leukemia and was out there barefooting on the short handle off the boom!! Talk about inspiring, this kid was amazing!!!

On the Wednesday we took a trip out to the Delta where we were met by Willy Farrel (aka, ‘One way Willy’) and his crew of Roy, Pepper Benz and his son…..   , Mark Hobsen, and Dave Naddy.

The Sacramento crew

We took Willys Malibu Response LX out on the 1000 miles of glass calm water (Delta) and hit it hard.  It was in the upper 90s that day and we stayed out on the glass from 830 in the morning until 7 at night without a brake as it was so good out there.  Roy, Mark and Dave worked on similar things with correcting their backwards barefooting position, back one foots and toe holds as well as getting in and out of the step position (the head zone helmets are a life saver when I comes to all of these things and makes it 100% easier for both the skier and instructor!).  Pepper worked on cleaning up his back to front and had never made a front to back so we concentrated on that and by the end of the day he was making a great front to back on the WBC shoe skis.

Dave Naddy showing us a great back toe hold

Loving the zinc action :)

Peppers son, Brady, who had never barefooted before or shown much interest, rocked it out and got out there on the handle and was showing the guys how easy it was to do some one foots.  He also got the award for the most improved skier of the way and went away with a new best hobby….. Way to go dude!!

Brady setting the bar for his elder brother

Adin Danneker, a WBC team member, rolled on up on the Thursday (he can travel around a lot as he only works a couple days a month and then sleeps a lot ….. hes a fire fighter).

It was all too much for Adin

Adin has been competing at a high level for a number of years and won medals at the last World Barefoot Championships as well as other top International events in the past.  It was a pleasure having him there with us for a few days and see his multiple turns get progressively better as well as making some huge progress in his slalom!

Roy Cotterill in a back one foot stance on the WBC shoes skis

Gregg Myer came and took a quick rip after a 6 year break from skiing and still went and did some back slalom.  He was up there on a magazine shoot for his one of a kind million dollar race car that was going up for auction the following month.

Meal time after a long day on the Delta

I took a few days and headed up to Sacramento to ski on another private lake (Twin Cities) and I got to see some more impressive skiing up there.  Mark Hodsen organized these few days and put on a great show.

Mark Hobsen looks just like Pitbull ;)

If it was a little chippy on the lake we headed to the infamous ‘lost slew’ on the Delta which was just behind the lake. Here we were greeted with a few straight glass stretches of around 3 miles a pop!!!! Mark made great progress with his backwards position as well as back one foots and figures out one foot slalom on his feet.  His wife also gave it a go and was a natural and got up first time on the boom and loved it!!  Mark also had his 11 year old niece, Mackenzie, give it a go and she got up on the 5 foot and was showing us some one foots.

11 year old Mackenzie after her ski

She went away loving barefooting and since getting the barefoot bug has been pestering Mark to get her back out on the water!! Great to see young kids, especially girls getting in to the sport! Joe Jacinto showed his face for a couple of days and learned some new slalom techniques as well as finding out that you don’t have to throw yourself in to a turn to make it around 😉 His wife, Dine, also gave barefooting a go and managed to get up on the handle on the shoe skis for the first time.

Pepper came back while I was up there with his older son, carter, as he had heard that his younger brother, who didn’t like barefooting before, was now footing and loving it.  He came to step up his game… nothing like sibling rivalry aye.  He had a great forwards position on his feet, great one foots and even started to try backwards.

Carter and I taking a ski on the Delta after a very productive day

I went and skied with the kids for a little rip at the end of the days they were there and it brought back great memories from when I was a kid learning to barefoot!  Any kid that tries this sport correctly with the right instruction and equipment and doesn’t love it must have something wired incorrectly 😉

Andy had to wear goggles due to his allergies which made it amusing to watch him ski and it was great to watch an ‘old school’ footer go out there and have fun doing some freestyle!!  We worked on some turns and slalom and then some side slides and general goofing around stuff… good fun.

Andy and his goggles ;)

I had a great couple of weeks in Cali and I am looking forward to going back out there later on this Summer!!

Huge thanks for everyone that skied and to Jerry Kanawyer who brought me out there and put me up as well as Willy for the day skiing and Mark for bringing me up to Sac for those fun few days!!!

New York trip and Barefoot clinic with the Piskuras

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

Arrived in to White Planes, Connecticut and the Piskuras picked both my girlfriend and myself up from the airport and took us to their house 45 mins away.  They have a great set up there with their self designed house (with Jimmies man room which is something to be seen J ), Lorraines dental practice and Jimmys Motel that he is renovating all on the same property!  Talk about not having to go very far to work.  Lorraine was away on a sleep apnea conference until the Sunday so we arrived in on the Thursday night so that we could have a few days in NYC to see the sights before hitting the water.

I had never been in to New York before so it was the usual tourist stuff that had to be done.  We started off by taking the train in and arriving in to Grand Central Station, which is a site in itself.

Grand Central Station

From there we ventured to the Rockefeller building where we were going to go up and see the city from a birds eye view however the lady at the desk said that it was far better to see at night so we postponed it until a later date ( that later date never came around as we ended up been too busy to make it in the day and the clouds came in and low in the next couple of days so the night viewing was out as well. Lol. Next time).

Times Square

Times Square was next which is a bizarre thing seeing the hustle and bustle of a big city and then to see a green park with people sunbathing and playing baseball etc in! We walked around the park and ate lunch there and then ventured back in to the city.  We checked out the Museum Of Modern Art (MOMA), which turned out to be free entry for 3 hours which was a result, which is a very cool building and has a lot of ‘interesting; pieces in.  The next day John Swanky, who has been barefooting for decades and seems to know everyone that has ever accomplished something in the sport of barefooting, had us around for a great steak meal at his lakeside house and then took us in the city the next day to have a backstage tour of the Broadway play ‘Spiderman’.  It was a once in a lifetime experience and I never knew how much went on behind the scenes of a play.  Shana and I then checked out the Empire State building and took the tube to see the Statue of Liberty as well as walking around ground zero.  We figured that Manhattan Island isn’t that big so we walked up to see Brooklyn Bridge and then through China town, little Italy and any other miniature cultural blocks until we ended up back in times square where our hotel was… it was a longer walk than I had anticipated and ended up taking us around 2 and a half hours with a couple of bar stops J Our evening was a meal at a nice restaurant followed by checking out 2nd street and a lot of Irish bars with a lot of interesting characters in them 😉

Backstage at Spiderman

The skiing started off on Monday and continued all week with Lorraine (1999 Senior Womens World Champion!!), Jimmy, Emma and Pete Sylvester everyday with others coming for a ski here and there.

Lorraine and Jimmy P

I had been warned about debris in the river that we were skiing on so Lorraine ended up driving for Jimmys first set so that I could concentrate on his skiing and not dodging trees.  This was a good theory until we drove over a submerged log without hitting it and it surfaced right in front of Jimmy doing front wakes at 45 mph.  He had been making some great headway as well in just a few passes! Needless to say it didn’t end well with us having to take him to the hospital (at the end of the day as he refused to go earlier so as to not mess with our skiing…. Tougher than me!!).  They X-rayed his foot and said that he had broken his heel and to stay off it for about 6 weeks.  Since then he has found out that it was not broken and his recovery time had reduced which is always nice to hear!

Jimmys foot

Lorraine had not had a lot of water time prior to me getting there as they had had some terrible weather all Spring which made skiing difficult but she got right out there and work out a lot of kinks in her front and back wakes as well as doing a lot of back to fronts and front to backs on the shoe skis.  Towards the end of the week she was making a few feet to feet back to fronts on her feet and did one that was so slow and clean that I could not believe what I was seeing…. Congrats on that!  She was also attempting front to backs on her feet at the end of the week, making the turn to the back and then just not having the confidence to grab the handle and ski it out but it is the first time she had the confidence to try them on her feet which was HUGE!!  Im looking forward to seeing what she can do when she is ski fit and had water time….. VERY talented! Pete has been footing for a long time as well but had been a little bit of a boom and shoe ski baby for the past few years so we threw him behind the boat a lot on his feet to clean up his slalom.  He is a very good listener and even with his old school style of slalom and straight legs (thought he was dragging his butt on the water when he was almost locked out straight 😉 )  he managed to pick up some new techniques which made him not only faster and cleaner but a lot more consistent.  Lots of back toes and getting into the step position helped him no end with stiff legs and his turns were looking a lot better. Good job Pete!! Petes youngest daughter, Emma, was a star.

Emma perfecting her toe holds using the headzone

Going 'old school' while the Sanger was in for a new impeller

Her attitude was great even when we were out and it was cold and occasionally raining.  She came on leaps and bounds, just a few things she accomplished was her front toeholds, backwards toes and backwards behind the boat!! Emma, I hope you stick with it and I will be looking forward to seeing her and Pete down in FL this winter at the ski school for some fun in the sun.  Mid week Eric Gorman came out and skied a day with us where we just cleaned up a lot of his skiing and we had a great time with him!!

Throughout the week we did get rained out one day and then the impellor broke on the boat so that was out of action for a day so we ended up going ‘old school’ and using Petes Barefoot Nautique which was great fun!!

At the end of the week Lorraine had a long time friend and skier (Sheri Rogers) come on out and even though we got a little rained out in the morning and resorted to going to a nice restaurant in town (life’s hard) we had great water conditions in the evening and finished the week off with some great skiing from the two girls!!

Local winery

Rhubarb wine after 2 days fermenting

We then went and checked out Erics local winery (White Silo Farm & Winery) where he had some wine tasting going on.  I have never had rhubarb wine before but it is amazing, if you are of age and you haven’t tried it then go to his website (www.whitesilowinery.com) and order some!!! He also gave us the tour of the place and showed us the process of making the wine which was great to see!! Thanks Eric!

The boys

The crew

MASSIVE shout out and thanks to both Lorraine and Jimmy for having myself and Shana up there and your hospitality!! You guys are great and it is always a pleasure to be around you both….. even if I needed to go cold turkey from the caffeine once I left (it was great while I was drinking it though).

David Small Sets Pending Trick World Record

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

It’s the battle of the World Records between Keith St. Onge and David Small this summer!   Keith was the first to ski over 13,000 but the video was reviewed by tournament officials and will not be submitted for a world record from the Port St. Lucie tournament in May, 2011.   David just tricked 12,300 (with a busted rib!) at Silverado Lake on July 10, 2011.

Here’s the video of Small’z, taken by Brian Heeney:

David Small clinic at the Barefoot Ski Ranch in Waco, Texas.

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

My second stop on my Summer clinics was at the Barefoot Ski Ranch in Waco, Texas.  Stuart Parsons had arranged for me to come up to his site for a week however the place is such a great ski site and the guys were learning a lot so I stayed an extra week. For those of you who are not up to date with the 3 event Barefoot calender this is the site that the next 2 Nationals are going to be held and where the 2012 world championships are going to be hosted.  It is probably one of the best ski sites I have ever been to… and I have been to a lot of sites all around the world!! There are 2 main ski lakes with one at 3700 feet long and the second is 2600 ( and waiting for some rain to come and fill it up).

Royal Tee, Haden and David Small after a great day on the water

3700 feet of glass!!

3700 feet of glass!!!

2nd lake waiting for some rain

Stuart has also dug out a straight line cable lake which comes off the main lake and there was talk of him putting some kickers in there as well as a barefoot ramp at the end where you can jump and land in to a foam pit….. very cool.  On top of all this there is a 4th lake back in the woods which may be turned in to a cable park by the time Worlds comes around!  The main lake has a dye in it which makes it look like a swimming pool and deer come down to the waters edge to cool off orr take a drink while you are sitting in the water waiting for the boat to return…… Did I mention that this place is amazing?! Lol.

Deer drinking from the lake and checking out the footing

The clinic was a great success were we had complete beginners like 7 year old Haden Parsons doing one foots in the swing all the way to Royal Tee Wiseman completing 100 turns in a set with only 3 falls as well as amazing me with his jumping!

Haden doing his one foots

Royal Tee half way through his 100 turn challenge :)

Royal Tee after completing his 100 turn challenge! woopwoop

Stuart Parsons along with Lee Stone, Blake and Landen Ehler were all working on their jumping techniques and progressing comfortably in to the inverted jumping technique.  Its great to see more and more people pushing themselves to try this exciting and crowed pleasing jumping technique!  If you have the right instruction from the very start so that no bad habits creep in it can be as straightforward as learning the ‘traditional’ style.

Stuart Parsons invert jumping

We had a couple of girls out there barefooting with us as well.  Landen brought his girlfriend, Elizabth, to try skiing and she was a great listener!!  She managed to get out there on her bare feet and ski down the lake in just a couple of short passes with the aid of the headzone headsets that I was using.

Kim Taylor showing us lads how its done

Landen showing us his sliding skills

Kim Taylor also came and tore it up and learned how to get up backwards and ski in a perfect backwards position! Aaron York, part owner of the BSR, came and did a fair bit of skiing as well which was good to see him back on the water and he figured out a lot with his turns and his slalom as well as dabbling with a little jumping.  A nice surprise was getting to ski with David Howze who is down working for Stuart in his Summer break from ATM (lol).  This kid (21) had only skied a few times before the 2 week clinic and he came away with doing front one foot wakes on his feet, toe holds long line, backwards long line, back toe holds on shoes and much more so congrats to David for skiing up a storm!

David Howze showing off his skills

Devils cove for memorial day

For memorial day we took a day off and headed in to Devils cove over in Austin. We took Royals Sanger over and hung out with 1000s more people that were there to relax and have a good time. Charlie, my 6 pound toy poodle came with me on this trip as well and loved having 350 Acers of tall grass to play around in and side walks to go running down and paying fetch in so thanks to Stuart for allowing me to bring the little guy!

I had a blast, got some great ski time there and I am looking forward to going back again before Nationals!

Why is the World Barefoot Center the Best Ski School in the World?

Monday, June 20th, 2011

Every ski school claims that theirs is better then the next one, so why is the World Barefoot Center the best ski school in the world? What really sets this ski school above the rest, is the combination of the top two men in the world for barefoot waterskiing, David Small and Keith St Onge– and their own personal coach, Swampy Bouchard. These three experienced coaches have new training techniques, and have taught hundreds of people to ski from beginners up to the top class skiers in the sport. Every day, they help people to develop their skills further in the sport of barefoot waterskiing.

The proof is in the footin’.   Take a look at the skiers that WBC has produced– to me, the quality of skiing says it all. It’s not just about going out and coaching; they really put their own heart and soul into this sport to make sure that they are getting the best out of each and every skier that comes through the school. It’s a simple concept: the better you are at something, the more fun it is.

Aside from the combination of these great instructors, the World Barefoot Center is in a great location on Lake Rochelle and Lake Conine in Winter Haven, Florida, with access to four lakes when needed. There are three Sanger outboards with 225 Evinrudes on them. These boats stay in both of the lakes, which makes it very convenient to be able to use to them all day, everyday. They are each individually equipped with towers, booms and super fly highs. as well as the best equipment available– which includes US gear handles, KSO shoe skis and  Headzone helmets. This equipment is also available to purchase in the pro shop, which is located onsite and it also has a huge variety of the 2010 and 2011 KSO wetsuit gear as well as WBC and KSO merchandise. The ski school is located between Orlando and Tampa airports, which makes it easy to travel to.

The type of training that you do will depend on the level of the skier. Beginners tend to do shorter sets more frequently so that they can focus on improving their  overall skills.   Advanced skiers do a combination of short, frequent sets and a long set where they get pushed to their limit.

1st Barefoot Clinic Stop in South Carolina

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

The trip started of with an interesting leg as Charlie (my toy poodle) came with me and it was his first flight.  Fortunately he is a great traveler and did not make a peep the whole way so we were clear sailing.

Ron Meeks, the clinic organizer, met me at the airport and took me to his place on the lake.  This is probably the most organized clinic I have ever been to as when I arrived Ron had a spread sheet there with the whole week planned out with who is coming, what we are having for lunch and dinner for the week and anything else you could imagine.

The first day started off with this water and pretty much continued throughout the week! …

There were a few days where we had some chilly weather which made it a little more difficult to get motivated to get in the water and learn something new.

Then there were also days where a lot of sun cream was needed 😉

One of the skiers, Shawn, has a plane not to far away so on one of the evenings we took a little trip to see the local area and to get an arial view of the set up we were using…  Cheers Shawn!!

I had a great week there and all the skiers learned so much including Ron Meeks doing some surface turns on his feet for the first time and sorting his back wakes, Becky learning her toe holds and getting better at backwards, Jim Miller learning backwards long line, Mark rocking turns out as well as some great slalom and much much more but it would take too long for me to mention.

Everyone skied a lot and resorted to taking small naps in-between sets :)

O, there were also these bugs that only came out ever 13 years, mated and then died within a couple of weeks (kinda cool) and we also came across a snake trying to eat birds under a bridge….

Keith St. Onge Tricks 13,100 Points

Saturday, May 14th, 2011

The World Barefoot Center team rocked the PGA tournament in Port St. Lucie. Keith St. Onge tricked 13,100 points but his runs did not go through as a pending world record after the tournament officials reviewed it.  David Small was right behind him with 12,500.  USA Water Ski posted an article: St.Onge barefoot skis over 13,000 points but is not a pending world record after review.

This was the first tournament for World Barefoot Center sponsored skier, Chandler Cargile.

A.J. Porreca joined the 10,000 Club (one of only five skiers!)– he tricked 10,100 and slalomed 16.4.

Ben Groen (New Zealand) tricked a personal best of 8,200, setting a new (pending) record for New Zealand.

Ben LaFrance (Canada) tricked 5,600 and slalomed 14.0.

Swampy Bouchard, the World Barefoot Center coach, summed it up: “I am so proud of our team yesterday at the PGA tourney in South Florida, we had 10 team skiers including Chandler Cargile– who entered his first ever tournament. The team yesterday posted 12 PB’s, two pending world records, a pending New Zealand record, broke the 13,000 point mark for the first time in history, and had the 5th skier in the history of the sport to break past 10,000 points.”

David Small Jumps Over the Lazy Guys’ Tube

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

The boys at the World Barefoot Center didn’t have anything to do one afternoon, so they decided to have some fun making Small’z work for his jumps:

Watch the action on “Next Level Barefooting,” and check out the GoPro camera view with David Small, Ben Groen, Ben LaFrance, Clement Maillard, and Filippo Ribaldone:
