Americans have always been trailblazers, from laying the track on the first intercontinental railroad to hacking through the petrified forest of national flags on the moon. Conquer the final frontier, the ocean, with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $95 for a half-day of barefoot water skiing, a wetsuit, dry-land coaching, and a T-shirt for one (a $195 value)
- $175 for a half-day of barefoot water skiing, wetsuits, dry-land coaching, and T-shirts for two (a $390 value)<p>
After donning a wetsuit, customers undertake dry-land training from World Barefoot Water Ski record holders before heading out on the water, where they’ll join a group of no more than five skiers. Once on the boat, students try their hand at two barefoot-skiing sessions before zipping back to land. There, they can hit up additional dry-land training if necessary and pick out a free T-shirt from the pro shop.<p>
World Barefoot Center
Between them, Keith St. Onge and David Small hold all three current World Barefoot Water Ski records. Beyond their championship-caliber skills, they cement their positions as true ambassadors of the sport by training the next generation of barefooters at World Barefoot Center. Under the guidance of Keith and David’s personal coach, Gary "Swampy" Bouchard, the center’s instructors walk students through proper stances and basic techniques on dry land before taking small groups for trips skimming across Lake Conine and Lake Rochelle. The expert staff can easily recognize and correct weaknesses in form and recommend waterfront restaurants with loose requirements.
