Sakis Water Sports successfully started teaching water-skiing in 1986. Since then, each summer it has continued to welcome regular visitors and newcomers of all ages and abilities, to Kalami, to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of recreational water-skiing.
Because of local restrictions there is no slalom course or a jump ramp. The emphasis is very much on introducing the sport, in a safe and professional manner, to many who might not usually have the opportunity. Now over 300 beginners pass through our hands each year.
Although beginners are very much our speciality, a great many skiers return to Kalami each year and have successfully progressed to tricks, mono, wake-boarding, wake-skating and knee-boarding.
As well as skiing we also offer Ringo and Hot Rod Rides. These are great fun for all ages and each ride tailor made to suit individual abilities. Check out our photo gallery for a view of the bay and the water we use.
A wide range of water skis are available and include combos, monos, wake-board, wake-skate and tricks (combo and mono). For the smaller members of your party we also have a skimmer board.
We use only top quality equipment, mostly H.O. and Connelly. Our main towing boat is a 2007 Ski Nautique 196 with a 330hp PCM Excalibur inboard engine. Our second tow boat is a Mastercraft Pro Star 200 fitted with a 175hp Mercury Optimax outboard engine.
Beginners are our specialty and we offer a fully comprehensive lesson consisting of a dry land lesson, the wearing of the skis, a lesson on the training boom and a lesson on the rope if progress is satisfactory. Professional tuition is given to all levels by fully qualified, British Water Ski Federation Instructors.
A skylon tow pole is available for wakeboarders. All ages are welcome and we have experience in teaching from 4yrs to 70+yrs. All we ask is that you kindly inform us of any health or physical condition that may impede progress. Whenever possible special needs will be catered for.
Ringo and Hot Rod rides are great fun for all the family. Each ride is tailor made to your request..fast, medium or slow.
What ever you wish to try don’t be shy!!
