The NSW Barefoot Water Ski Club is a division of the Australian Barefoot Water Ski Club more commonly known as Barefoot Australia.
Our primary mission is to organise, develop and promote the spot of Barefoot Water Skiing from the social weekend warrior level through to international competition.
The Club was formed at Sackville NSW in 1960 and has operated continuously at various locations over the years.
The Club currently operates from the banks of the Georges River at Helles Park in Moorebank, NSW. The site has been home to many of our Australian and World Champions including Gizzie Hallasz, Donna Schmidt, Colleen Thompson (Wilkinson), Kenny Derry Jnr, Keenan Derry, Tim Failes, Robert Blaauw, Dodd Dwyer, John Pennay, Brenton Crouch, Nathan Forge, and Gavan Beattie.
The club has hosted two World Championships at Helles Park, the first in 1994 with John Pennay winning the Overall Championship and the second time in 1998. We have also hosted a number of National and Asian Australasian Championships.
The NSW Barefoot Waterski Club’s goal is to be the premier Barefoot Waterski Club in Australia by creating a friendly environment for people to learn and develop as a skier or official. We host all types of activities from “Come and Try” days where people can experience the art of Barefoot Water Skiing for the first time through to National and International competitions.
We welcome all levels of skiers and officials and look forward to hearing from you soon.
