Cypress Garden Water Ski Team

In 2012 a group of the former Cypress Gardens water skiers and their families started a ski club to pass on the tradition of Show Water Skiing. They have 2nd and 3rd generation skiers out there as well as ages from 5 years old to much, much older. They have a whole new show for 2017. There are always the beautiful aquamaids in their ballet line, high fling jumping, beautiful doubles, and you can usually see a Southern Belle or two walking around at the show for photo ops.

The Team was founded by former water skiers from Cypress Gardens -- which is now a Legoland -- who didn't want their unique talents to be forgotten.
