Growing Bolder with Barefoot Water Skiing

Friday, April 20th, 2012

Judy Myers and Karen Putz were interviewed by Growing Bolder less than a year ago.  The amazing story about Karen’s husband forwarding a link about Judy on the Today Show changed her life.  The video link inspired Karen to take the sport of barefoot water skiing again and she came to the World Barefoot Center to put her feet back on the water after her last barefoot run twenty years prior.

Judy and Karen were approached by Growing Bolder to do a video on Karen and Judy’s relationship and how Karen lost her hearing from taking a fall while barefoot skiing.  Her family had a rare inherited gene where a sudden hit or blow to the head would cause hearing loss.  A Mom Who Walks on Water. They also did another video on Judy: The Barefoot Competitor.

Recently, Kellie Clark viewed the Growing Bolder video and decided he wanted to try barefoot skiing.  He visited the World Barefoot Center in Winter Haven, FL with his friend, Steve Franklin, and we got them on their feet.  We appreciate the time Growing Bolder took to come out and interview Judy and Karen.  We hope to have many new students that are inspired from watching Growing Bolder!!
