Water Skiing is a Sport for All

1 November 2016

British Water Ski & Wakeboard (BWSW) are pleased to launch two short films showing that water skiing and wakeboarding are sports for everyone. The films feature three of our members who each tell their story about how water skiing helps them and, ultimately, enhances their lives.

Meet Thomas, Abbie Jo and Sophie. They are three disabled people with a variety of impairments who have all found a love of water skiing. They each share their experience of water skiing, what attracted them to the sport, what challenges they face and why everyone should join them on the water.


BWSW are keen to support their clubs and sites to become more inclusive and be able to offer the opportunity to everyone to try our sport. Sometimes the right attitude, the confidence to ask questions and the willingness to try is all it needs to get someone out on the water – whatever their ability.

Thanks to Dudley Water Ski Club and British Disabled Water Ski and Wakeboard Association at Heron Lake for being involved in the films. BWSW worked with WhiteNoSugar Productions to create the films following the success of the Mikey Pinder film.
