If you are new to water skiing, you may not know what a barefoot boom is. But if you have ever been frustrated with trying to teach someone or learn to get up on combo skis, learn to get up on a slalom ski, a kneeboard, learn to get up wakeboarding, or even learn to barefoot, then you will want to listen closely. A barefoot boom could be your next purchase.

The Barefoot boom was invented as a device to help skiers learn to barefoot water ski not long after barefooting was invented, but it has been difficult to tell who was the first to use it since so many home made versions have been made. In 1983, Mike Seiple began manufacturing booms as his trademark way of getting people to learn to barefoot water ski.

This is your opportunity to become an armchair expert and get the insider information about barefoot booms. Booms are not created equal and I will attempt to tell you what you need to look for and what myths to avoid.

Myth number 1: The lighter the boom, the better it is because it is easier to set-up and take down.

Truth about boom weight: Boom weight is determined by the construction. Lighter
booms are constructed out of hollow tubing. What you want to look for is solid aircraft
aluminum construction. Barefoot booms are subjected to a tremendous amount of pressure
when used for teaching. The most important consideration for booms is safety and nothing short of a solid boom is acceptable. In addition, solid booms do not spring back as much when a larger or strong person slips off the boom when they fall.

Myth number 2: one cable connected to the bow is better than two.

Truth about boom cables: Safety, safety, safety. I have tested every boom on the
market. When a boom cable breaks because of construction, it is a terrifying moment whether a skier is attached or not. Two stainless steel cables going from the boom all the way to the point of attachment provide maximum security and safety.

Myth number 3: quick release boom clamps with the lever and moving parts are better.

Truth about boom clamps: After testing every boom clamp on the market, the quick
release clamp takes about 30 seconds to adjust while Barefoot International boom clamps takes about 15 seconds longer. My findings showed that after hundreds of adjustments, the flexing of the quick release clamp causes it to weaken because the lever and moving parts loosen.

On the other hand, Barefoot International boom clamps provide the best connection with the ski pylon with no deterioration over time.

By far the biggest consideration in a barefoot boom is safety. By getting our Barefoot International boom, you can then concentrate on learning and teaching others to ski. Barefoot International booms
are now being used to teach children and adults alike to kneeboard, combo ski, wakeboard,
slalom, and barefoot. A Barefoot International boom will last forever and you will become the go-to-guy for learning on your lake.
