This RAVE Sports Jr. Waterski Starter Package includes Jr. Shredder Combo Water Skis and the Aqua Buddy. The wide shape of the Jr. Shredder Combo Water Skis allow for younger skiers to balance easier on the water. The skis are constructed of RIM molded PU with a plastic laminate top and fiberglass rods for reinforcement. A training bar is included to hold the ski tips together while learning, which can be easily removed when the skier is confident in their skills. The pre-mounted slalom toe allows for a quick transition from beginner to intermediate. The double density adjustable slide binding is soft on the inside for comfort, but stiffer on the outside for ankle support. Soft step inserts cushion the rider’s foot. The catamaran style inflatable Aqua Buddy Trainer allows new skiers to learn a deep water start without getting in the water. Let the boat pull the skier while they sit on the Aqua Buddy to get used to the feeling of being pulled, and when they feel ready all they have to do is stand up! The Aqua Buddy is also great for experienced skiers who are looking for less stress on the body that occurs from traditional deep water starts.
