    Ever hear of the Waterskiing Girl Wonder? Shellie Blum is one bad girl skier who holds (STILL I think) the Lake of The Ozark's record for time on a ski without stopping from Bagnal Dam area

    have you ever heard of Randy Rabe?  He was one of the first single skiers in  Cypress Gardens in Florida.  He would be around 70 years old now.

    Tony, I was skiing the Fox river in Ill. one morning, I had my right foot in my ski, and my left foot holding the rope handle. My hands were behind my head like I was relaxing in a chair. A guy was walking down his pier with a cup of coffee watching me ski with no hands, and walked of the end of the pier. I laughed so hard I wiped out! Great vid. Dave.

    LOVE these vids Tony~ you were in OK City one time in '87 and borrowed my husband's HO Turbo for your demo at the tourney there, what great memories! (something had happened to your ski, travel wise I think) The Tulsa Water Ski Team was there to attend the event & we had a great time watching you ski, as we have continued to do over the years. Ski on & ski big!

    That's it.. the body slide, how the heck do you pull that off??

    The video you watched is the opening montage to an instructional video that teaches how to do all these tricks. I think you are talking about the body slide. Search "Klarich + body slide" or "How to hot dog water ski" to find the individual tricks. I also have them all organized as a playlist.

    How do you pull that off at 2:27? I've been skiing for 20+ years and can't do that. Is it boat speed??
