Wrappedroots was a huge success with 40 competitors taking to the waters at Jodi Fisher’s Ski School, with half having never skied in a tournament before or even seen a course. Jodi’s new “Gate Guide System” worked like a charm, helping the beginnings and intermediate skiers guide them when to go on the always important gate setup. Friends and family cheered on all the competitors, making for an amazing atmosphere.
In addition to getting new skiers into the sport, Jodi’s fund raising tribute for Andy Mapple was unforgettable. The skiers and their families were treated to a professional breakdancer/painter (@Salvadorlivepaints), who performed a jaw dropping painting upside down, finishing his act by flipping the canvas and revealing a stunning image of Andy slaloming (see in video).
The painting and other unique items raised funds for the “Spray It Forward” campaign, which focuses on growing the sport through supporting over 100 college water ski teams across the USA. Spray It Forward recognizes the value in the over four thousand students who ski at the State, Regional and National collegiate level, with many students learning to ski for the first time while at College.
World Water Skiers was proud to be apart of Jodi’s 1st Grass Roots event. All of the incredible memories were shared by those at the lake and captured through photos and videos, which will be archived on Jodi’s new Club Page on WWS for future generations to enjoy.
Moving forward Jodi’s can use his page to keep in members informed when new events hit the calendar and are featured on his page. Join Jodi and setup your club page, helping us create memories like this on your home lake.
4 year old boy called Bruno Rodrigues from Apopka FL who has learned to deep start on a single ski all within the last two weeks and to start work in and figuring out the mini course and he just can not get enough of the course!
