One kind of adaptive water ski

People often ask me how my husband Geoff waterskis.  Here is a photo of our kids carrying his ski onto the wheelchair accessible barge.  His bum goes into the carefully padded seat and his feet go into the little pocket near the dock post.  He is able to hold the rope in his hands, but many of his students cannot hold a rope.  In these cases, they use a much wider and more stable sit ski and someone is able to ride on the back to maintain balance.
