Many people view waterskiing as a recreational sport and a leisure activity but in reality it is an internationally acclaimed sport that involves a lot of techniques and specialties as it was consistently emphasized in style by the 24-time Irish National Water-ski Champion Barry Galvin of The Cork Powerboat and Water-ski Club for Madforsport.com.
Waterskiing is a sport where an individual is pulled behind a boat or a cable ski on a body of water, skimming the surface.
Galvin said that being a good sportsman in the game, it involved one simple secret – learning to use the equipment effectively. The widely acclaimed ski hero from Ireland stressed the fact that there are many types of Ski’s, the Slalom, Trick, Jump, and Recreation Combo skis. For beginners, Gavin advised the wide body style ski’s, which allow them to move at lower speeds and they are more stable. For advanced skiers Galvin recommended that it was necessary they have their own personal skis.
Galvin proceeded to give the clear cut basics required in using the ropes for ski where he said, “For Jump Skiing and Recreation skiing, a 75 foot/ 23 meter rope is used, Slalom skiing will start at 18.25 m, trick skiing is a personal preference but usually about 12m of rope is used .A shorter rope for beginners is used on the first lesson, this offers a more direct pull from the boat and aids with a successful lesson”.
The water ski guru had not yet finished, he engaged the audience on another of the sports technique which was basically on the flexibility and durability of the boats used at events. Galvin observed that while there are numerous types of boats that he commended, the best boat appropriate for competitions had to be chosen carefully and the Correct Craft Ski Nautique offered a better experience.
“Anybody who wishes to learn how to water ski should find the nearest club and book a lesson. This is the only way to learn in a safe controlled environment”, Galvin added.
As for best waterskiing locations in Ireland that are popular among the best of the game personalities, Galvin proceeded to point out south Ireland due to its perfect weather.
Ultimately ending his lesson for Madforsport.com, Galvin sought to leave the Madforsport.com readers with the final secret of the game. “Always dress appropriately, use the correct wetsuit for whatever disciplines you are partaking in. On a warm day, a beginner should wear a full suit as they are going to be spending lots of time in the water. More advanced water skiers may just wear neoprene shorts on a warm day, this will help free movement”
