There are three different events in which a water skier can participate - slalom, tricks and jump. There are both individual event champions and for those who compete in all three events, overall standings.
Slalom: Slalom skiing is probably the most popular skill among recreational skiers. Performed on one ski, this is the skill that most beginner and novice skiers strive to accomplish, and what the elite skiers manage to make look effortless.
Slalom Competition Format
Tricks: Trick skiing is a discipline that demands a high level of balance, skill, and creativity. Unlike the other classic disciplines, you're up against the clock and are judged on the performance of your trick selections.
Tricks Competition Format
Jump: Ski jumping is by far the most extreme discipline in Classic, 3 event skiing, and has almost been perfected by Canada's World Champion, Jaret Llewellyn. Performed on two specially designed skis, coupled with a helmet and padded wetsuit, contestants approach the ramp at lightening speeds, and can soar through the air at distances of up to 300 feet!
Jump Competition Format
So, if you're interested in carving up the slalom course, trying your hand at tricks, or soaring to greater heights/distances, why not try classic water skiing?
