The World Barefoot Center is the place to go to improve your Barefoot Water-Skiing.

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

The World Barefoot Center is continuing to prove itself as the best Barefoot Waterskiing ski school for both beginners and elite.  We have been producing some amazing athletes in the 3 event scene and have had a lot of new students coming to the ski school to learn to barefoot for the very first time or to try some Barefoot freestyle .  Our success in coaching comes down to a few factors…..

1, We have the best Barefoot water-skiers in the World teaching at the school.. David Small, Keith St Onge,  AJ Porreca and Ben Groen who are ranked 1st, 2nd, 4th and 6th in the World.

2, We have the best weather and water conditions at the ski school. With 3 houses on 3 of the chain of lakes we have a lot of options of where to ski and can easily travel through the canals to find long stretches of glass calm water if needed.  With the school based in central Florida, the school has year-round, great weather.

3, The best equipment is used at the ski school.  We use Sanger boats which are powered by Evinrude E-tec motors.  There are 3 jumps permanently in the water so jumping is readily available on a variety of wind directions. We have all of the boats rigged up with Barefoot International towers, fly highs, training booms, all sizes of shoe skis, barefoot swings, US Gear handles, and ropes.  We utilize Head Zone helmets, which allow the coaches to talk to the skier while skiing.  The use of Head Zone helmets dramatically reduces learning times.

With all of these things combined, the World Barefoot Center is the place to go to learn how to walk on water.

Where will YOU be going next Spring Break?

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

When you think of spring break, you think sun, water, bare feet, and Florida. When planning your next trip, think of a vacation where you can combine all of them–doing some barefoot water skiing at the World Barefoot Center. Centrally located in Winter Haven, Florida, the World Barefoot Center gives you the opportunity to learn something new with friends and family. Whether or not you or your friends barefoot water ski, the World Barefoot Center offers professional training for all levels to learn.  The World Barefoot Center is owned by World Barefoot Champions, Keith St. Onge and David Small.

If there is room on the boat, the World Barefoot Center also offers the opportunity for guests to be able to sit in the boat and watch the action. The knowledge and expertise of the coaches allow even someone who’s never skied before be able to succeed at barefooting. Being able to coach you while you’re skiing with the use of Headzone helmets, the barefoot boom, a Super Fly-High, and the technical knowledge of the coaches make barefooting easy to learn. If you book several days in a row and need to take a break from skiing, the WBC is within 2 hours driving distance from Disney World, Cocoa Beach and the Gulf coast.
