  2. 2. Babies as water skiers<br /> Young age is the best one for learning water ski.<br /> At the beginning it’s all about a fun.<br /> Later person can choose as to be his hobby or to play professional.<br /> I was playing professional water ski for 7 years, before I came to USA.<br />

  4. 4. Events in water skiing<br />There are three competitive events in traditional water skiing:<br /> Slalom<br /> Tricks<br /> Jump<br />
  5. 5. Slalom<br /> It’s the most popular water skiing discipline.<br /> The slalom course consists of 6 fixed buoys.<br /> The water skier follows the tow boat through the entrance gate of the slalom course, pass around the outside of all 6 buoys and proceed through the gate, until he misses a buoy or the gate or falls.<br /> The speed of the boat is increased every time skier passes 6 buoys.<br /> The objective is to pass as many buoys as possible. <br />
  6. 6. Tricks<br /> It’s like Freestyle Snow Skiing.<br /> This type of Water Skiing requires good balance and athleticism. <br /> The objective in this event is to make as many figures as person desires, knowing that each of the figure has its own value.<br /> The skier performs during two 20-second passes.<br />
  7. 7. Jump<br />The skier has the right to make 3 jumps. <br />A jump shall be scored when a skier passes over the ramp, lands and skis away.<br />Only the length of the jump will be considered as result.<br />Skier must reach the longest possible distance in order to win the match.<br />
