Description

History of the Wisconsin Water Ski Federation

"During the early days days of water-skiing in Wisconsin there was a lot of animosity, born of jealously, between ski clubs. They had difficulty communicating with each other because of their pride and that jealously. Each club was kind of an entity unto its own. We thought the creation of a statewide organization would foster a spirit of camaraderie and fellowship, both of which were built into the bylaws of the Wisconsin Water Ski Federation." Allen Bubolz (one of the founders of the WWSF)

The Wisconsin Water Ski Federation was formed in 1960 following the Joyce Jumping Tournament in Minocqua at the old Hazelhurtst town hall. The "Federator" became the official publication of the Wisconsin Water Ski Federation a year later in 1961. Think Tank was conceived in 1963. And, the first organized competition between clubs was held in 1967.

The Wisconsin Water Ski Federation has become a national leader in producing and promoting world-class water-skiing events. Today, there are 32 affiliated member clubs and over 2,000 members. As of late 2013, the WWSF represents 15% of the total USA Water Ski membership and 40% of NSSA members.
