Show Skiers Go Barefoot

Day 2 with the WaterHawks Water Ski Show Team, at Eagle Lake.

It was a windy morning but that didn’t stop us!  The cool breeze was a nice change from yesterdays high heat.  These footers are signed up for the entire day, that means each person skied two sets in the morning and two sets in the afternoon.  Lets checkout what they learned.

First up Tyler Schuman from Minnesota.  Tyler worked on his front one foot one hand trick and then moved on to backwards deep starts.  In the past couple years Tyler has played with backdeeps but couldn’t figure out what was going wrong.  Today KSO figured it out and had Tyler try it out on the WBC trainers.

One Foot One Hand!Barefoot Backwards!

Just last night we heard a story from Ryan Corkery about why he joined the WaterHawks Ski Show Team.  Ryan had come to a show 2 years ago and saw Keith St. Onge Barefoot in the show and from that day Ryan knew he had to learn to barefoot waterski.  A week after Keith left town Ryan became a member of the ski team. Inspiring! Now Ryan is doing his deepwater start, tumble turns and one foots a lot more easily, its amazing was a few tips can lead do.  Ryan worked on back deepwater starts too.

Ohhh Yeah! One Foot

Planting for a Backdeep

Chloe Lawson is tough!  After taking a year off from skiing due to a broken leg she is back at it once again, we applaude her for that!  Chloe has a natural great forward gliding position.  In the afternoon Chole worked on her back deep water starts.

All around fantastic show skier Jordan Kintzle came out for the day.  Jordan learned a front deepwater start, working on getting a cleaner front one foot and is starting to glide perfectly on his feet backwards!

Nice Posture and Glide

Body Slide!

The WaterHawks show director Melanie Kintzle learned about the three point stance and standing up over her feet.  Once Melanie go the hang of it she was deeping up much smoother than before.  Those beach starts in the show will be much easier:)  Like many people Melanie was a little nervous to try a back deep, we assured her that you can breathe while dragging backwards.  After some encouragement Melanie was gliding backwards with ease.

Nice Barefoot Form!

Thank you all for skiing with us! We had a wonderful boat crew and it was very enjoyable! Remember we sell ALL your barefoot gear from wetsuits, to booms. We hope to see you in Florida at the World Barefoot Center.
