Extractions: The Beginning Water skiing was invented in the United States in 1922 when Minnesotan Ralph Samuelson built the first pair of skis and was towed on them behind an outboard-powered boat. What Samuelson originated became an exhibition sport on both sides of the Atlantic in the 1920s and early 1930s. It developed officially into a competitive sport in 1939 when the American Water Ski Association (AWSA) was organized and held the first annual National Water Ski Championships at Jones Beach, Long Island, New York. As a Recreational Sport Throughout its history water skiing has closely paralleled the development of recreational boating in its appeal to the general public. Over the years it has shown almost continuous, sustained growth. Surveys of sports participation show that there are roughly 11 million water skiers in the United States. The Competitive Sport Interest in competitive water skiing has grown considerably over the years and continues to attract many more enthusiasts. USA Water Ski now sanctions more than 800 tournaments each season. These range from small, local events for novices to national and world-level tournaments for more experienced competitors. Male and female skiers of all ages can compete in traditional three-event (slalom, tricks, jumping) tournaments, as well as in tournaments for barefoot, kneeboard, show ski, collegiate, ski race, wakeboard and physically challenged skiers.

Search Waterskiing / Wakeboarding Waterskiing for the Disabled Mark "The Animal" Turner Member of the 2001 US Disabled Water Ski Team The majority of the waterskiing world takes for granted they are fortunate to participate in this sport we love so much without any physical disabilities. Often, we think we are invincible on the water, until suffering an injury that puts us out of commission temporarily. Temporarily is the key word here. We injure ourselves, we recuperate, we ski again. It's not that simple for everyone. There is a whole other population out there who has permanent handicaps that hinder them from experiencing the thrill of a pull behind a boat. But over the years, technology has emerged and more and more disabled people are taking to the water. Not only are they able to ski, but they are also able to participate in tournaments. More and more sporting organizations are mainstreaming their events to cater to the able-bodied and disabled. For a collection of disabled waterski links please see the
A REVIEW OF WATER-SKIING SAFETY IN THE USA in the USA, the American water skiing Association (AWSA) oversees safety at AWSA sanctioned tournaments and represents the interest of recreational skiers as http://www.roberts.ezpublishing.com/wski/safety.htm
Extractions: A REVIEW OF WATER-SKIING SAFETY IN THE USA Water-skiing safety in the United States of America is primarily governed by the American Water Ski Association (AWSA). Safety information, equipment standards, and competition safety procedures are among many of the documents promulgated by the association. Water-skiing equipment related standards and procedures are reviewed. A U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Nation Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) survey of water-skiing injuries was performed over a period from 1980-1991 showing injury trends over that period. Data on injury modes is presented. Typical water-skiing safety equipment is presented along with equipment characteristics. Future safety related developments are discussed. The first person to water-ski did so in 1922 in the state of Minnesota, USA. He used two large skis and was towed by an airplane equipped with floats. Water-skiing evolved to its present form with nearly 17 million Americans water-skiing (1).
