    EP71: Ski Talk with Steffen Wild

    EP71: Ski Talk with Steffen Wild

    Welcome back to The Water Ski Podcast for Episode 71 with Steffen Wild!

    Steffen is a former Pro water skier from Germany and owner of Wild Wake Park, a cable facility in Steinberg am See, Germany.
    Recently, Steffen and his family have been skiing with Matteo in Italy, so it was the perfect opportunity to sit down and record live. Steffen had somewhat of an unconventional path to greatness in water skiing, although he was very good already at a young age. At the same time, his commitment to learn from others and organize his life around water skiing made him one of the most iconic jumpers of the 1980s and 1990s. Matteo was also very curious about his transition from pro water skiing to wakeboarding, and his business venture into cable ways, which has occupied his professional life since 1999.

    Sit back and enjoy it!

    EP70: Waterski Pro Tour

    EP70: Waterski Pro Tour

    This episode of The Water Ski Podcast is the announcement of the launch of Waterski Pro Tour!

    As many of you might have heard through different interviews published in recent times, Matteo has been involved in a project aimed at redacting the former Elite Points into simpler and easier-to-understand Pro Points. This new categorization was approved by the IWWF Tournament Council, thereby sanctioning this as the new format. The next step and the major mission was to unify all these exciting tournaments under one central website and social media where to follow the feats of the best water skiers in the world. Waterski Pro Tour is to grow the sport through the promotion of professional waterski events into a unified tour.

    Put waterskiprotour.com on your bookmarks, follow @waterskiprotour on Instagram, and get ready to watch Swiss Pro Slalom, the first stop of the Waterski Pro Tour!

    EP69: Ski Talk with Bruce Reid

    EP69: Ski Talk with Bruce Reid

    Welcome back to The Water Ski Podcast!
    After a brief brake, Matteo is back with a new guest and a very rich episode!

    Episode 69 is with Bruce Reid! Bruce is a former World Championship medalist, Pro Tour competitor, and orthopedic surgeon. Matteo connected with Bruce in October after joining a wok group within the IWWF Medical Committee. The goal of this group is to update on and off water protocols for concussion recognition and management, as well as spread awareness and education about brain injuries. The work captained by Bruce and with the involvement of several volunteers has led to a number of innovations in the sport when it comes to concussions.
    You can visit the documentation and videos being produced at iwwf.sport/concussion
    Another tool to be familiar with is the On Water Concussion Recognition Tool (OWCRT), a simple step-by-step early recognition tool we should all be familiar with.
    Finally, another great app to download is Concussion Ed!

    Sit back and enjoy this rich and very informative chat!

    EP68: On the Dock with The Parsons Project

    EP68: On the Dock with The Parsons Project

    Episode 68 of The Water Ski Podcast is a great roundtable chat with Carl Denis and Nick Parsons, the people behind The Parsons Project.

    Since Matteo saw a new ski bearing Nick's last name, featuring a pineapple, and with Carl being involved, he has been dying to get the two in front of microphones. These two individuals are a pleasure to be around, have a ton of knowledge about ski design, construction, and the materials that are needed. However, they also never own a ski company nor were they ever involved with the whole process of creating a ski from scratch. Carl and Nick's enthusiasm for the sport and for creating product is evident as they share the story that brought The Parsons Project to light. And how cool is that they reconnected after Matteo's interview with Nick for TWSP?

    Enjoy this episode as the guys narrated their process!

Topic suggestion

I love this Poscast! Thank you for taking action to grow our sport! As an avid competitive skier, the info for on and off the water is great! Would love a discussion about nutrition and recovery. What foods enable optimal performance, what to eat before and after etc.

Great water ski interviews!

As someone who grew up water skiing I really enjoy listening to these podcasts that are the most interesting and influential people in the sport. I still water ski almost everyday in the spring, summer, and fall - and my kids are now hooked on the sport too. Both kids ski for their collegiate team. Thanks for proving this great content!
