2021 FWSF Junior Development Clinic
The 2021 Florida Water Ski Federation Junior Development Clinic held this past weekend at Ski Fluid was a great success!!
Almost 20 young talented kids joined us for a fun day on the water. Ages ranged from 4 to 15 years old and abilities ranged from first timers to national record holders! It was great to see everyone supporting each other, cheering each moment of progress and so many new friendships made.
We were extremely lucky to have the expertise of a number of top coaches including Kyle Eade, Taylor Garcia, Kevin Jack, Freddy Krueger, Aaron Larkin and Russell Gay…big thanks to all for helping out!
Also thanks to the event sponsors – Huston Motors, Action Water Sports, MasterCraft and Ski Fluid as well as a special mention and much appreciation to Nicole Pauley for the organization.
We hope to see all these young Florida skiers continue their progress this season and hit some local tournaments in the near future.
2020 MasterCraft Pro Recap
Last Friday and Saturday, some of the best skiing ever at a professional event was witnessed at Ski Fluid! On October 23rd and 24th the 2020 MasterCraft Pro presented by Action Water Sports took place behind the brand new 2021 Pro-Star…records were set, spectators were amazed and the event was a huge success.
Fifty of the world’s elite skiers competed over two days in Men’s Slalom, Women’s Slalom and Men’s Jump. The qualification rounds were hotly contested with a ton of personal best performances and 2 records…Manon Costard running 1.5@41 for a new European record and Felipe Miranda flying 233ft for his Chilean record.
After these 2 preliminary rounds the field was cut to the top 6 in each event to battle it out for the title on Saturday afternoon.
Men’s Slalom came down to a 3 way run-off for first, with Freddie Winter, Nate Smith and Thomas Degasperi all running 5@41! Nate Smith prevailed in the run-off completing 41off for the 3rd time over the competition and scoring 1@43. Freddie Winter was a close second, only just pulling up short of 6 ball at 41.
Regina Jaquess once again proved her dominance in Women’s Slalom taking the win ahead of relative new-comer Elizabeth Montavon in second and Manon Costard in 3rd.
The event culminated in the Men’s Jump final which saw some amazing distances. First off the dock, team Fluid skier Jack Crictchley, launched his best jump ever and joined the 230ft club with 231ft or 70.4m. The rest of the field pushed hard all flying between 224ft and 229ft but no one could surpass his mark until the final skier off the dock. Freddy Krueger added the 2020 MasterCraft Pro Jump title to his resume on his second jump with 232ft eclipsing Critchley by only 0.2m! MasterCraft team skier, Taylor Garcia, rounded out the podium with 229ft for 3rd.
This event was sent live all over the world thanks to the WaterSki Broadcasting Company. With innovative camera angles, slow motion replays, dockside interviews, a panel of guest expert commentators and real-time audience competitions…the production rivaled shows by major sports networks and really brought the event to life for those at home.
