Water Skiing

ALSO KNOWN AS:
  • Wake skiing |

Water Skiing

Water skiing involves being pulled behind a powerboat by a ski rope. Skiers wear either one (slalom) or two (double) skis and skate back and forth across the wake churned up by the boat.

The boat slowly pulls away until the rope is taught and a skier can use hand signals to communicate with the boat. Shorter ropes are used by more advanced skiers.

Pros

  • Quick to learn – Hard to forget
  • Fun family activity
  • Try on UK lakes year-round

Cons

  • Can be expensive
  • Wet and can be cold
  • Reliant on others

Training & Qualifications

Yacht sailing in the UK is overseen by the British Water-Ski Federation (BWSF), with accredited centres offering courses to suit different levels of ability.

Gear

Training centres provide all the necessary gear for beginners. Wetsuits, gloves and lifejackets are all essential elements.

Gear is not often purchased until you have access to your own boat or are a regular member of a club.
