On Saturday 5th June WWS hosted the inaugural Skiers’ Summit with guest Coaches Elizabeth Montavon and Stevie Island.

Elizabeth is a professional waterskier and is currently ranked No. 9 in the world. Stevie is a former US National Champion and 10x Regional Champion. Both Elizabeth and Stevie are based in West Palm Beach but, owing to the miracle of Zoom, they were able join us live for the interactive seminar!!

Elizabeth and Stevie have recently set up their own business (Ski or Die) which sells waterski apparel and has an associated podcast. The Ski or Die mantra was born of an obsession with fighting the odds, going against the grain, proving the non-believers wrong and throwing 110% of their heart and soul into waterskiing from sunrise to sunset.

During the 2-hour webinar, the small group of participants were able to introduce themselves, their level of skiing ability and share their motivations for attending the session. Each participant also had the opportunity to submit a video that was subject to an in-depth analysis by the Florida-based professionals. Lastly, there was a 2-minute quick-fire question round which covered all areas of the sport.

Ian Currie from KWSC said “It was an excellent, varied session with good individual and group focus for both skiers and coaches. Elizabeth and Stevie were fantastic and covered all levels of competency with immediate and practical answers and solutions.”
