Kevin Desmond (au); Patrice Martin (fr). Aquaplaning & then water-skiing developed from the early 1920s. This vol. covers modern skiing, in California then on the French Riviera in the 1930s. At first the recreation of a small & wealthy elite, water-skiing became a top competitive sport as well as a symbol of the post-war leisure class. The beautiful water-ski ballerinas Cypress Gardens in Florida rivaled even the charm & daring of Hollywood starlets in Technicolor. This book helps us re-live the most varied aspects of this sport in a moving & spectacular way. It passes from the comical nature of the most bizarre inventions to a tribute to the greatest modern champions, beginning with the most titled of all, Frenchman Patrice Martin, who has contributed an introduction. 100+ color & B&W photos.
