This section of BarefootCentral.com is dedicated to the individuals that can lay claim to being the only skier(s) in the WORLD that have ever pulled off a specific trick. 

Barefoot waterskiers take pride in knowing they can do something very few people on the planet can do (walk on water).  To be a barefooter that either invents a new trick, or performs a trick so difficult that even the top footers have difficulty doing it is extra special.  Call them the ultra-talented, the gifted, the Naturals, the skiers that are inventing new moves and pushing the envelope of what's possible on the water have become the present day legends in the sport.  This section is being established to showcase those few skiers and the the tricks they make famous. 

If you think you're THE ONLY one, or one of only a few that's ever performed a specific trick, send us the video and we'll check it out.  If your claim proves true, we'll post it here for all to see. We'll be posting the first 3 skiers to perform any given trick.  If you're the first, be sure to send us your name, the date you performed the trick, and what you call it.  Being first means you get to name it.
