We love our Members at Hobe Lake Ski Club, and this week we’re highlighting Charlotte, one of our members from the UK.

- When and where did you learn to waterski?
I first learned to ski when I was 5 or 6 years old on my grandmother’s boat in Long Island, New York. (My grandmother skied until she was 80 years old!) I first skied on a slalom course in the UK about 7 years ago.
- What is your favorite waterski memory?
Running my PB—3 buoys at 55k! Also, switching from my recreational ski to a Syndicate slalom ski made it feel like I was skiing on a Ferrari. So, finding the right equipment was a good memory.
- What do you love about the sport?
I love how beautiful and graceful it looks when it’s the hardest thing in the world. I love the adrenaline rush and the feeling of being so strong and being propelled by the boat.
