Waterski Coaches in Twin Cities

Minneapolis/WI border. Does anybody have any contacts for someon that does training and/or coaching in this area? I have the lake, the boat, the course, and driver. I would really like someone to just come to the lake and watch me and my son ski and offer advice on things that will help us improve. We are not looking to compete, just having fun so it would be a relaxed environment.

I'll send you a PM on a coach, unsure if he's willing to travel to a site but it's worth a shot!

I go there every year too since my in laws live in Illinois. I would like to get on a weekly schedule this summer so finding someone local would be nicer

Go to ballofspray.com and look under the Ambassador tab on the top of the page. You'll see a couple of guys in MN that will coach, give advice, introduce you to the course, etc.
