Australian 2019 Show Water Ski Nationals will be held here in Perth on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th April (with teams practicing from Monday 8th April).
Teams from Mulwala NSW and Southern Waters Victoria, will travel across Australia to the WA Water Sports Centre in Burswood, to compete with Show Ski WA for National Championships in the teams event, plus individual championships for swivel, strap doubles, freestyle jump and team jump.
What is “Show Skiing?” – In competitive show skiing, each club has one hour to present a theatrical performance on water skis. Judges score acts by awarding points based on originality, presentation and execution. Elaborate costumes and staging intermix with music and fast action on the water as an announcer leads the audience through the show. The team rosters in the Australian Show Ski Championships can number upwards of 50 total members, including skiers, boat drivers, announcers and show directors. Each team will perform two shows over the two days, with the highest-scoring performance determining the champion team.
