IWSF Hall of Fame

The International Water Ski Federation (IWSF) Hall of Fame is housed in the USA Water Ski Hall of Fame building in Florida USA but the IWSF Hall of Fame has its own list of inductees and criteria for nominations.

The USA Water Ski Hall of Fame is not to be confused with the IWSF Hall of Fame.

Information about the IWSF Hall of Fame along with a list of inductees is published by the IWSF here.

An article about Water Ski Racers’ success in the USA Hall of Fame is published here. The most notable Water Ski Racer inducted into the IWSF Hall of Fame is Chuck Stearns (photo below). Chuck is also inducted into the USA Hall of Fame along with Marsha Fitzgerald and Mike Avila.

Thanks to Ultimate Image Capture

A number of photographers (professional and amateur) have been very generous by providing their photos for use on this and other web sites to help promote ski racing. You can see a list of them at the bottom right of this web site.

Justin Frank writes … (7 Dec 2007) First of all we would really like to thank all the sponsors, participants, and supporters that have already signed up for the tournament. Your quick responses to getting your entries in are greatly appreciated. This is a true testament to how tightly knit of a group we can be, and we just wanted to let you know how thankful we are for each and every one of you.

Congratulations Kim Lumley & Rob Manchett

On the weekend, former World Champions Kim Lumley and Rob Manchett announced their engagement to be married. No date has been set but Rob (who did ask Tom’s permission) said; “it will be after the 2009 worlds – it has taken us eight years to get this far.”
