How can I learn to barefoot water ski?

The number one choice for learning safely and effectively is to book a lesson at The Footer’s Edge Training Center.  We specialize in beginners and take great pride in providing the best learning environment on the planet.

The second best choice is to learn by video instruction. Check out our two-hour video, The Footer’s Edge Instructional Video. Lane Bowers shows a safe step-by-step approach while teaching a first time barefooter to take her first walk on water. Lane then explains his highly published Posture and Glide theory that will guide you through all of the skills of barefoot water skiing.

The last choice, which we do not like to recommend, is the exceptionally abusive trial and error method. While many people would like to think that they will be that much more ahead of the game by learning some on their own before getting here, this is a fallacy. If you choose this method, please update your insurance policy.
