One of the tools the club uses to teach skiing is the barefoot boom. It can be used at very slow speeds to teach young kids to ski. Being right next to the boat is very safe, and allows the coach to give the skier directions that they can hear, see and understand immediately. The
Baylie, Matt & Derek do Trios for the first time together. Each has been in trios before, but never all 3 together. Notice the harnesses around the men’s waist. It takes a lot of trust to ski in the strap. Our spotters (Amy & Dave) in the boat must have it perfect. A fall and

We are nearing ski season and the end of our Team Tuesday features. Soon we will be starting Film Friday. We hope to give you a different video each week of one of our acts. One of our last features is Alex. He has been on the water since before he was born. Alex started
Today on Team Tuesday, we feature one of the most fun skiers to watch. Kevin has been skiing with the team since the 90’s. He actually didn’t learn how to ski until he was 21, and a few years later he was a national champ. Kevin is one of just a few people in the
In many acts a skier puts on his skis and puts a strap around his waist. That skier is completely dependent on the spotter in the boat to release (pull the pin) the rope in the event of a fall. Our team is blessed to have 2 great spotter/ pinners. The husband and wife team
Team Tuesday features the current president of the Rough Water Warriors, Derek. He’s been skiing with the team since 94. He’s been skiing on Pomona for ever.
