When you are on holiday in Greece you will find private training clubs throughout Greece, operating at organized beaches both on the Greek islands as well as on the mainland. Sometimes you will find water skiing clubs as part of the facilities in larger hotel complexes.

Aqua-plane and water ski

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 in Vouliagmeni Bay

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.

Water skiing is for everyone

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.
