    This Ski Talk episode of The Water Ski Podcast is with Vincent Stadlbaur!
    Vincent is a Swiss skier who currently resides in Clermont, FL. However, calling "Vino" simply a skier is reductive. Internationally ranked driver, webcast producer, photographer… Vino is a bit of a Leonardo Da Vinci, a true ambassador of water skiing worldwide.
    Join Vincent and Matteo as they cover:
    Vincent's early days in the sport as part of a 3rd generation of skiersHow his passion for photography startedSome of Vino's first shots and the famous Asher's photo at 9.75m at Alizée CupHis insistence since young to drive the boat and his first experiencesVincent's dad insistence on respecting the sport The moment everything clicked and started driving the best skiers in the WorldVino's days at Film School and how the passion for webcast aroseThe importance of content creation for the promotion of the sport… and a ton more!
    Follow Vino on Instagram, check out The Waterski Broadcasting Company, and take a look at the Swiss Waterski Resort.
    Also, look at some of his video productions. My favorite one is Unleash

Making me want to dust the old stick off!

Love this podcast. Matteo’s insight and take on the sport of waterskiing is awesome. Being a Cajun alumni the episodes with Dane Mechler and Spav/Gonzo brought back some awesome college memories.
