In the winter season in Sarasota the Ski-A-Rees water skiing team performs each Sunday afternoon on the bay near the Mote Marine facility. The team is composed of some young skiers with a lot of athletic ability who are just learning to do the various formations and tricks on skis. Others on the team come from having had experience at different water-skiing venues throughout the United States. In this picture, a more experienced skier is skiing barefoot which requires the towing boat to be traveling at faster than normal speed coupled with a strong, athletic and experienced skier at the end of the tow rope. This skier fit the profile perfectly as he skied barefoot past the audience creating a great spray of water drops.
