The South African Barefoot Scene
Behind the Scenes with the World's Top Footers

 

South African has been producing some of the most talented barefoot waterskiers the world has ever seen.  Names like Sam and De Villiers are becoming as common as Scarpa, Seipel and St. Onge. What makes the South Africans so unique is the age of their skiers.  Heinrich Sam is setting new world records at the age of 17.  Andre De Villiers is 22 and is defining and re-defining the sport of freestyle barefoot.  Andre's younger brother Zane, at age 19 is rocketing to the top and creating sick new moves on the water like the overhead 360.

Most of us won't ever get a chance to travel to South Africa to ski with these barefoot phenomenon's, so we sent them a camera and asked them to videotape anything they felt would give the rest of the world an idea of what it's like to ski and train in South Africa.

The videos have been amazing and we'll be bringing all the action to you right here.  We hope you enjoy the great skiing, as well as getting to know all the personalities that go into making these guys who they are.
