There is a mechanical engineer at Vanderbilt that has or is developing a wakeboard for disabled individuals. I can't remember his name, but I will see what I can find if you are interested in that.

I know a guy in Florida that is a 3 event sit skier. I have only seen him slalom and trick, haven't seen him go over the jump. I'll try to post a picture of him later.

Anyway the USA WaterSki site has some info on "disabled skiing", I found these links there:

Here is the link to USA WaterSki's site:http://usawaterski.org/pages/divisions/WSDA/main.htm

There is some more info there that could be useful.
Best wishes to your friends son. Hopefully he can get out there and have some fun.

I posted a pic of a female sit-skiier earlier today. I think there's a club specifically for disabled skiers in Macon, GA.

HEY LakePirate are you familiar with it??
I personally can't remember the guys name though I have talked to him. I know they were listed on USAwaterski.org.
