Cottage Art Print: Vintage Slalom Waterskis

If you've ever waterskied, you'll know what we mean when we say there's nothing quite like the feeling of gliding and cutting across the smooth surface of the water on a warm summer afternoon. Ralph Wilford Samuelson invented waterskiing in the summer of 1922 using pine boards 8 feet long and 9 inches wide. As boats became more powerful and skiers more adventurous, the slalom became the ski of choice for many.

By the 1960s, the waterski had evolved to include beautiful inlays of various woods such as maple and teak. These vintage beauties are the inspiration behind our 'Vintage Slalom Waterskis' art print.
