One major difference with barefoot compared to traditional water skiing is that your boat will have to go a lot faster than usual (~40 mph) because your feet are way smaller than a pair of skis, so there’s less surface area to keep you on top of the water.
A specially designed barefoot ski boom is the gold standard for learning how to position your body and feel the water. Attached to the ski pylon off to the side of the boat, the skiing pupil hangs off the boom and is within feet of the driver for easy communication as he or she learns how to scoot on the water.
Once you’ve got the hang of it and graduate from the boom, you’ll want to check out our selection of low-stretch tow ropes and handles specifically designed for barefoot skiing.
