F1, F2 & F3 Waterski

Last month we had a race for the Belgian Championship F1, F2 and F3 waterski almost in front of my door.
The weather was great so I decided to take some pictures (It turned out to be approx. 2300 pics).
With speeds up to 100mph on the straight sections, it was a good occasion to practice some “panning”.

The whole series: http://www.steendorp.info/Sports/Waterski/Waterski-2013

Nice pics. That is one crazy sport. I'd love to drive some of those boats though.

Crazy sport indeed!

I slalom ski. Don't think I'd ever enjoy skiing in choppy water at high speed. Seems like an ACL injury waiting to happen. I'm surprised the lady in the photo isn't wearing a Don Joy knee brace as a preventative measure. Don Joy is the leading brace worn by college and pro football athletes to prevent injury.
