Local barefoot waterskiing star Lindsie Jack is currently skiing in the Australian Barefoot Championships with aims for a podium finish.

A RISING star in the waterskiing world has skimmed her way into the Australian Barefoot Championships this week with aims to land on the podium. 

Lindsie Jack, a 14-year-old Tablelands local has set her eyes on silver at the ongoing barefoot championships being held in countryside New South Wales. 

After only putting her feet on the water in 2018 Lindsie has made incredible progress to make it to the Australian Championships for the second time. 

Initially she made the journey to the Australian Championships in 2020 before heading to the World Championships last December.

Although Lindsie is just 14 she will be competing in the U17 girls age group, just like the last time she competed and took out third place. 

“I love barefoot skiing it’s awesome, being on the water is always fun,” she said. “I feel like I’m prepared because I’ve been training heaps lately. 

“I’ve skied here before so I’m a little bit familiar with the place and the boat, each boat is different so it’s good to get to know the boat because it does affect your skiing.”

Lindsie started skiing on Tuesday and will continue to ski every day save for one rest day until the end of the championships on Saturday. 

A suitable training regimen and fantastic support from her family and coach, Katina Davis has spurred Lindsie onwards as she aims to be one of the best skiers in Australia.
