Water-skiing in Greece

waterskiing

 

The first form of water-skiing was the “aqua-planing” in which the athlete was gliding on the water surface standing on an “aqua-plane” tied behind a speedboat.
In Greece, “aqua-planing” was first reported in 1945-1946 in the wider area of Volos.

Water-skiing as we know it today, e.g. with one or two skis, is first reported to have taken place as a recreational sport, in Vouliagmeni Bay, Attica, in 1957. Two years later (1959), the Nautical Club of Vouliagmeni pioneers by founding the first competition water-ski department.

As a popular and also a recreational sport, water-ski offers families the opportunity to participate in the sport. Everyone with the age of 5 and above can practice water-ski in the excellent athletic installations of the 500 water-ski schools and 25 Nautical Clubs at almost all of the numerous seaside resorts and islands in Greece.
