These waves don’t end until the boat runs out of gas. The wake surfing surfing craze hit Cypress Gardens early days of the sport, that being the early 1960’s.

Next step Dick Jr., pick up the speed, drop one then step off… 🙂 #waterskiing #skiingdoubles #showskiing #backwardskiing #jantzen #lifeonthewater #instadaily #trickskiing #waterskilife #zebraprint #classicphotography (at Lake Eloise)
