If you ever dreamed of learning to barefoot water ski this is the place to go. You get expert barefoot water ski instruction from the world's best barefooters. This is the place to learn to barefoot ski or to train to be the next world champion. I learn new tricks faster and easier at World Barefoot Center. They drive interactively and precisely like you wish your friends would do at home. You get the right start, the right speed, the right boat path, perfect glass water shorelines and spot on feedback from the coach. It is fun to have other footers in the boat to hang out with. Many of the best competitors in the world come here to train for weeks at a time. They match me in the boat with people of similar abilities so I can learn from watching. I highly recommend World Barefoot Center for the best possible instruction in the world. Don Stoppe, Competitive barefoot water skier Eastern Region NH

I spent a half day at WBC to work on my footing. Everyone was fantastic. They make you feel welcome right away. You sign a waiver, sign the wall, meet the crew and head out. Ashley was a phenomenal coach, and made some small adjustments to my technique that progressed my footing by 2 or 3 seasons. What I'd been trying to accomplish for several seasons, was done on the first pass! I'll definitely be back!
