3 EVENT - HOW IT WORKS.

Tournament skiing also referred to as “three event” is the competition form of conventional water skiing.

The sport comprises the three disciplines of  "Slalom, Trick and Jump".

People of all ages participate in tournament skiing. National and State events are contested on an age basis the youngest class being subbies, (under 10 girls & boys combined), followed by under 14 girls & under 14 boys (actually 14 years of age or younger) through the age groups to over 55 men and over 55 women and open men’s and open women’s class.

Other tournaments are often run on a speed for slalom, points for trick, and distance for jump basis, this allows all participants

to slot into a division according to there level at the time.

Our sport is very much run on a personal best basis allowing all competitors to document their PB and strive to continually better it, and as the years roll on maintain it.

Tournament skiing is all about skier skill, fast boats and noisy boats are not a part of the scene, in fact the fastest speed a boat travels in tournament is 58kph for open class men’s slalom, 55kph for open class women slalom, 57kph for open men’s jump and so on, tournament series boats are extremely quiet and the latest models are even quieter.

One of the many great things about tournament is that we don’t tow boats with us, every tournament site provides a tow boat,

this also ensures that we all ski behind the same boat with the same characteristics.

Tournament skiing is an elite sport and an athletic sport, physical fitness is vital to any participant competing at a high level, indeed at any level.  

Tournament skiing has enjoyed a resurgence of interest in the last few years with capacity entries at most tournaments all over Australia.

f conventional water skiing.

 

 

  SLALOM.

Similar to conventional water skiing except a rigid course is set out and skied through.

Unlike conventional or social skiing the skier does not have the option to ramp up the boat speed or

make turns at the skiers leisure, the slalom course requires timing & precision.    

The skier enters the slalom course through the start gate (two buoys) and skies around

six turn buoys and then exits the slalom course through the out gate.

The course measures 259 meters from start gate to out gate.

A set of boat guides are located down the centre of the course.

The turn buoys are set 11.5 meters from the centre of the boat course.

The skier chooses a start speed and if all six buoys are rounded the speed is increased by 3 kph for each pass through the course up to maximum speed of 58 kph for open men’s class.

When the maximum speed for the relevant class or division is reached the rope is shortened from 18 mtr to 16mtr to 14mtr then 12mtr then 11.25mtr then 10.75mtr etc, until it becomes physically impossible to round a turn buoy.

World class skiers run the course on 11.25 & even 10.75 mtr lines and less.

If we stretch the rope out at a 90 degree angle to the boat the 11.25 mtr line is well short of the turn buoy, obviously the skier needs enormous stamina, skier skill and body position to round these buoys.

In recent years the mini course has been an enormous success, this is where we place a turn buoy about half way between the boat guides and the full course turn buoy, allowing new competitors to successfully run this easier course, rather than endless failure & frustration on the full course.

This division is generally known as Division 6. Unlike all other divisions which are "sudden death" skiers are guaranteed 4 passes of the slalom course until they graduate to div 5.    

The transition from the mini course (div 6) to the full course (div 5) is relatively quick with sufficient practice.

TRICK.

Very few people can ride a trick ski and even fewer can

perform tricks and even fewer again can perform toe tricks,

this is where the skier places the rope on the foot with the

aid of an ankle strap and performs a series of tricks.

All tricks are specific maneuvers, from 90 degree to 180 to

360 degree turns, wrap-ups, step overs, flips, reverse flips

and so on.

Style is not a consideration when judging trick skiing.

A trick run consists of two twenty second passes of the trick

course, the first pass up the lake usually with the rope in

hand, followed immediately by the return pass usually with

the rope attached to the foot.

A trick run would usually consist of a side slide reverse side slide,

180, reverse 180, 360, reverse 360, 180 over the wake,

reverse 180 over the wake, line  front, line back, (i.e. back

foot over the rope into the water then return to the skiing

position) all within 20 seconds.

A similar routine is performed on the way back with the

skier being toed by the foot.

The more experienced trick skier would also wrap the rope

around them self & do several 360s unwrapping the rope

as they go & finishing with 6 flips 3 in a clockwise direction

& 3 in the anti clockwise direction all within 20 seconds.

The maximum number of flips the skier can do in

one trick run is 6. 

The boat used to tow a trick skier operates in the same mode

as it would when towing slalom or jump, the trick skier does

not have or need the advantage of a high pole or an enlarged wake.

JUMP.

Jump like motor cross is not for the faint hearted.

Jump is a very serious discipline that requires

enormous confidence stamina and technique.

The jump course consists of a boat path set out with

marker buoys fitted with timing devices that give GPS

signal to the boats timing system.

The jump ramp is a large solid structure set at heights

ranging from 1.5mtr to 1.8mtr which actually correlate

to the degrees that the jump ramp is set at.

The skier develops technique over years of practice all

leading up to competing in open class competition,

where skiers competing in open men’s class from a

maximum boat speed of 57 kph criss cross the jump

course to build up ski speed to in excess of 130 kph & incur

over 7g's as they go over the jump ramp and jump more

than 75 meters that’s 1 ½ Olympic swimming pools.

Open women jump more than 57 meters from a maximum

boat speed of 54 kph well over an Olympic swimming pool.

Now thats what we call "Getting Air"

As we went into the 2008 season Jacinta took a heavy fall at jump training, resulting in a serious knee injury including the severing & tearing of most ligaments, leaving Jacinta to persevere with injuries including a severed PCL until new techniques in PCL reconstruction allow Jacinta to undergoe a major knee reconstruction in Aprill 2012.

LEARN TO SKI THE EASY WAY

Learning to ski is hard & takes a considerable amount
of time & perseverance but for those of us prepared to
take the
time it is very rewarding.
In the old days we pulled people at the end of a rope
until they
were exhausted most ski boats now have a
boom bar or learner
bar this allows the skier to feel
secure close to the boat & driver
and to get some
instruction as they go. The skier can then progress to
skiing on the rope on either
single or double skis.
