Waterskiing is a surface watersport in which the skier is being pulled behind a motor boat over the surface of a body of water. First attempted in 1922, water skiing involves gliding across the surface of the water on two skis or one, known as slalom skiing. Some essentials that are necessary for the sport of waterskiing consist of one or two waterskis, tow boat with tow rope, life jacket, and a smooth body of water. Skiing is a fun, easy to learn sport that people of all ages and skill levels can enjoy. There is a slalom ski course for the more experienced skiers.
