What is barefoot water skiing?

Barefooting Barefooting Barefooting

Barefooting is a 40 mile per hour rush. Depending on weight and type of tricks being performed a skier is brought up to high-speed (35-45 miles per hour) and skims across the water on nothing but his or her bare feet. Showskiing features many different types of footing. In each show you see upwards of 10 footers being pulled behind a boat at the same time in a gang foot, barefoot human pyramids that skim across the water well over 40 miles per hour, footing done backwards, tricks and surface spins, different types of footing starts and even some really crazy individuals that jump out of two perfectly good skis and land on their feet barefooting. This is an act that takes years of practice to perfect. Specialized safety equipment such as padded wetsuits are used to protect the skiers, however, every footer will agree . . .”there is no easy fall!!”
