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

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.
