Bare Footed Water Skiing is water skiing behind a motorboat without the use of water skis, commonly referred to as "barefooting". To water ski bare footed requires the skier to travel at higher speeds than conventional water skiing.
"Barefooting" has three well established competitive events slalom, trick and jumping.
Other less popular events are;
Figure 8 - Two skiers on opposite sides of the wake ski while the boat drives in the pattern of a figure 8. The last skier standing wins.
Team Endurance - is a race between teams. Each team has a boat and the skiers take turns skiing. Races generally takes place on a long river, up to 45 miles. The first team to cross the finish line wins.
The newest form of Barefoot competition is an event which brings together all three events. Tricks, Slalom and Jump into two action packed passes. These events are held only for the elite in barefooting.
