1998 – My Generation

In 1998 Mad-City compared the ski styles of the 70’s to the skiing style of the 90s. How things have changed and how they have stayed the same. The music has changed, the dancing has changed, and some of the things on the water are a little big bigger, but the enthusiasm and love of water skiing is one thing spans all of the generations.

The show director was Matt Heilman.
