When the U.S. Barefoot Waterskiing National Championships were first held back in 1978 Joe Knapp competed. And he’s competed every year since. In 2021 Knapp, 66, swept titles in slalom, tricks and jumping in the senior men's division claiming his eighth U.S. overall title.
Joe shares with Marc what keeps him going, on the water and in life, and his end game for waterskiing – hint, it’s not any time soon. Joe’s story plus his tie to legendary barefooter Banana George Blair are all in this edition of Fountain of Youth.
