The caption says it all! “The grace and beauty of ballet can only be enhanced when performed on water skis as these good looking Cypress Gardens water skiers, Jerry Welch and Gail Van Gundy demonstrate.” #waterskiing #showskiing #waterskidoubles #traditionaldoubles #showskilife #lifeonthewater #classicphotography #loveblackandwhite #cypressgardens (at Cypress Gardens, Florida)

The very first 4-tier pyramid, and probably the only Cypress Gardens pyramid you will ever see with a guy climbing. It only took us that one try to learn, “guys can’t climb!” —- (GADZOOKS, who was that show director that decided to put Lymski on the 2nd tier?) #waterskiing #showskiing #waterskipyramid #classicphotography #loveblackandwhite #lifeonthewater #showskilife #cypressgardens (at Cypress Gardens, Florida)

First there were aquaplanes, then there were water skis and then there were pretty girls on aquaplanes throwing up a big spray. In this case the pretty girl’s spray caught Dick Pope, Jr.’s eye, he proposed and she became Mrs. Frances Pope! #waterskiing #waterskilife #aquaplane #showskiing #showskilife #cypressgardens #classicphotography #loveblackandwhite #lifeonthewater (at Cypress Gardens, Florida)

The Lakeland, Fla. Air Show, Sun-‘n Fun, is going on this weekend. LOTS of planes over there, (see posts by @mattbablitz) but I bet they don’t have anything like this Igor Benson flying boat. You could have seen it at Cypress Gardens a few years ago – Red McGuire flew it on special occasions, but it’s wrapped in mothballs in his son’s warehouse now. #waterskiing #waterskishows #flyingboat #igorbenson #showskiing #cypressgardens #classicphotography #lifeonthewater (at Cypress Gardens, Florida)
