Canyon Lake has a new club dedicated to the sport of show skiing called the “ShowCal Skiers”. If you’ve ever seen a ski show at Sea World, Cypress Gardens, or Magic Mountain, then you’re familiar with the excitement and crowd pleasing action these show skiers provide. And in fact many of the members of Canyon Lake’s newest club have performed professionally at those ski show venues.
Show Skiing has been called the most entertaining discipline in the sport of water skiing. It is fast-moving, exciting, graceful, and most of all, fun to watch. Virtually all aspects of the sport – barefooting, jumping, slalom, tricks, wakeboarding and kneeboarding – are choreographed into one grand performance. Unique to show skiing are ballet/swivel skiing, adagio doubles, adagio trios, freestyle jumping and human pyramids.
It makes sense to have a club like this in Canyon Lake since it’s already considered a classic water skiing community, and home to numerous national and world champion skiers, boarders and hydrofoilers. ShowCal Skiers bring yet another dimension to the already popular sport. They plan to perform several Ski Shows for our community throughout the summer.
And anyone can participate in this new club even if you don’t have any experience – the club is open to all members of the community.
“The biggest advantage to joining ShowCal Skiers, is that you and your family will have the ability to utilize Canyon Lake’s Greatest Amenity – The Lakes – without having to own a boat or water ski equipment. It truly is an organization where all members of a family can participate together. Age and skill are not factors since ski club performers can range from young children to grandparents and beginner to expert.”
Dry land practice is usually on Sundays at Holiday Harbor and rumor is there may be a wet practice on the jump lagoon March 23rd. Best to check out their calendar to confirm dates and times for all practices.
