The Tampa Bay Show Ski Team (Oldsmar, Fla.) won the team title at the 2013 Southern Regional Show Ski Championships on June 29 at Tower Lake in Oldsmar, Fla. The tournament included four teams competing for the regional title.
Tampa Bay tallied a grand total of 1,613.03 points in sweeping the box scores for dock and equipment personnel, pick-up boat crews, towboat driving, showmanship, sound crew total and overall show. The Sarasota Ski-A-Rees placed second with 1,166.3 points.
In competitive show skiing, each club has one hour to present a theatrical performance on water skis. Judges score the acts by awarding points based on execution, difficulty, spectator appeal and flow. Elaborate costumes and staging intermix with music and fast action on the water as an announcer leads the audience through the show.
The Southern Regionals also featured athletes competing individually in adagio doubles, swivel and freestyle jumping acts.
