Learning to Waterski Circa 1958 (Vintage Film Home Movie) . WATERSKIING is a sport where an individual is pulled behind a boat or a cable ski installation on a body of water, skimming the surface. Water skiing usually begins with a deep water start, with the skier crouching down in the water. When the skier is ready, the driver accelerates the boat to pull the skier out of the water. In addition to the driver and the skier, a third person known as the spotter/observer should be present. The spotter's job is to watch the skier and inform the driver if the skier falls. Communication between the skier and the occupants of the boat is done with hand signals.
