Welcome to the Barefoot World Championships 2009


The  Barefoot Water Ski World Championships are due to be held between 25th January and 1st February at Lake Inspiration, Otaki, New Zealand.   According to the latest Championship bulletin teams have been entered from Australia, Canada, China, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Netherlands, South Africa, USA, Sweden and of course New Zealand.   Further details on the NZ Barefoot Water Ski Club website.

The GB Team is composed of David Small (double World Champion and World Jump recordholder), Emily Goldie (European Champion), Simon Raine, Aiden Finch and Hannah Bullard with Paul Turner as team manager.   Late dropouts were Greg Meehan (credit crunch), Ben Harris (cracked pelvis) and Dan Goldie (uni swot).   The team have been getting in a fair amount of pre-comp training in Florida so here’s hoping for good results in NZ!   They’re also planning to smash the Aussies at Texas Hold’em poker so watch out guys!
