want to learn to water ski

I live in Georgia and very much want to learn to water ski, but  don't have a boat or know anyone that water skis. I tried putting an ad in the activity partners section of craigslist  but as you might imagine, the responses I got were not really what I was looking for. Any advice on how I might get into the sport?

Hi @whitelighter - Thanks for reaching out, though we're sorry to hear you're having a difficult time finding people to water ski with. 

Hopefully some fellow waterskiers will weigh in here as well, but we wanted to pass along these groups that either listed ski lessons for beginners on their pages or might have some information to help you find what you're looking for:

Hopefully this helps!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

I have noticed water ski schools and rental services at many lake locations around the Western US. You might investigate some of the resort lakes of your area.


Thanks for the replies. I will check out these links.
