Waterskiing is a sport where an individual is pulled behind a boat or a cable ski installation on a body of water, skimming the surface.
Trick skiing: skiers perform tricks somewhat similar to those of gymnasts while being pulled along by the boat.
Slalom skiing: skiiers use only one ski. A special slalom ski is used which has two plates, a front boot and either a toe plate, open binding, or another binding (similar to the front binding) behind the main one. The bindings are oriented so that both feet point forward, with one behind the other. Slalom skiing dramatically increases the speed and agility of the water skier.
In tournament slalom skiing a course is set up with buoys and water skiers are expected to navigate through and around the obstacles using only one ski. Sanctioned competitions require official drivers and approved boats. A skier's score is based upon the number of successful buoys cleared and the length of the rope.
