If you are at a resort or anywhere that you rent equipment to water ski, you need to be provided with a helmet to protect your head before engaging in this sport. When learning how to water ski, you may have the need for lessons, because the action of standing up, balancing and water skiing may not come naturally for most people. In order to water ski, you will need to be able to balance on the water skis for an extended length of time. You will also need to learn how to stabilize yourself when you cross the waves or wake in the water. Your knees need to be flexible the entire time you are water skiing, much the same as in downhill skiing. These instructions are important, because at any time that you are waiting for the boat to pull you up into the position necessary to water ski, you can fall down and sustain a head injury. If you are not wearing a helmet that has been provided to you for the action of water skiing, you are risking a serious head injury as a result of participating in water skiing sports events.
Any time that you fall into the water while water skiing without a helmet, you will risk sustaining a serious head trauma. If you land in the water head first without a helmet, you may receive a compression injury, that can affect your spine as well. You risk a serious neck and back injury from hitting the water head first without a helmet. If you are water skiing, you need to be provided with a helmet to protect your head, back, spine and neck from a serious injury.
