Born with a hole in my heart good exercise was essential thus I could swim before I could walk. My father taught me to water ski when I was just seven. I've done quite a lot of it but just for fun, no competition stuff. This picture was in Spain behind a 27 foot death machine that left a wake about 2 foot high to cross.

Technically my position is all wrong, unless, of course, you're in the back of the boat with a beer, then the technique looks brilliant!

(Actually I overdid it on the holiday, and on the flight home my back locked up and I was stretchered off the plane straight to hospital.)
