It may be September, but there are still a few nice weekends to spend on the lake! Waterskiing is a great exercise and a ton of fun! It does have a bit of a learning curve when you first start out, but follow these tips and you'll be a pro! Don't bend your knees more than 90 degrees before you stand up and keep pressure in the bottoms of your feet. Stay seated until you're sure you can stand and keep the rope near your midsection, not your chest. Shoulders back, stand up, and once you get confident try dropping ski!
