“Amateur Water-Skiing at its best”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Sarasota Ski-A-Rees is an amateur water ski show that has been going on since the late fifties. It has always been a wonderful show. Of course, water skiing is in ill favor with the waterfront megamansion and condominium set, but Sarasota takes pride in this great tradition and so far has resisted attempts to stifle it.

“Great & Free”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

This is an art that is trying to die out and these folks are keeping it going locally. Water skiing-, jumps. pyramids, and switches a treat to see. We saw a 4 year boy on water skis doing great.
Fun to watch for all

“The Best”
Reviewed 20 October 2013 via mobile

If you are in the Sarasota area do not miss these talented and devoted people. Water skiing in all forms in a family atmosphere. Bring the kids and the grandparents.

“FREE AND GREAT!!”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

This is an art that is trying to die out and these folks are keeping it going. If you're going to the Mote, plan to go on a day that these people will be practicing and enjoy a free show that you will rarely see anywhere else in the US.

“Fun”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

So much fun to watch!!! It is a day on the water. When in Sarasota, the water is the place to go. Not far from there is great shopping at St. Armand's Circle.
