Water Ski -Wake board
Water skiing is a sport/game and recreational activity and is popular in many countries around the world where appropriate conditions exist- an expanse of water unaffected by wave motion. Rivers, Lakes and sheltered bays are all popular for water skiing. In this kind of water sport an individual is pulled behind a boat or a cable ski installation over a body of water, skimming the surface. The sport requires exceptional upper and lower body strength, as well as good balance and muscular endurance.
Standard water skis were originally made of wood but now are usually constructed out of fiberglass-based composites. They are of similar length to downhill snow skis but are somewhat wider. Instead of a rigid binding, they have rubber molded binding, in which the skier’s feet are placed. Skiers are pulled along by a rope with a handle fitted at end and attached to to a powerboat at the other.
