Water Skiing Loses Another Legend: Skip Gilkerson Posted on 25th Oct, 2015 by Susan Talarico

It is a sad day in the water ski world as we say good-bye to Skip Gilkerson. Skip has judged every Show Ski Nationals since it's inception. Showman, promoter, legend and all around good guy. Always wearing a smile and his signature orange hat,  we sure will miss him at Nationals and the many other water ski events he attended.

This wonderful tribute to Skip on his birthday from Tony Klarich says it the best.

I guess it really is not good-bye Skip, but "Ski Ya Later".
