Sixteen athletes won titles on Saturday, June 11 in the water skiing portion of the 2022 Sunshine State Games Presented by Amazon. Action Water Sports in Polk City, Fla., partnered with the Florida Sports Foundation to host the event, which consisted of a Class C and Grassroots slalom competition for skiers of all ages and ability levels.
“The entire Action Water Sports team is passionate about water sports and the lifelong memories created by spending time on the water,” said Action Water Sports Tournament Director Andre Broussard. “We love hosting Class C tournaments as they allow us to give back to the sport we love.”
The event was pulled by the record-setting MasterCraft ProStar, which was completely redesigned for the 2021 model year. The latest iteration includes advanced technology which allows for thoughtfully integrated features that cater not just to the skier behind the boat, but to the driver and crew as well.
