20May22 Waterski Council publishes 2022 Rules version 22022 Waterski Rulebook V2
20May22 Waterski Council votes unanimously to make rules changes that are effective immediatelyThe World Waterski Council has issued version 2 of the 2022 Rulebook. There are two changes that require some explanation.
Rule 8.15 Revision - This update has been necessary because we are dealing with the introduction and adoption of new technology in the form of Boat Path Measurement Systems (BPMS), specifically SurePath which is now providing detailed data on Boat Path performance which has simply not been available before.
It is clear from this data and the recent practical experience in competitions that a further modification to the rule was necessary. Data will continue to be monitored throughout this season and if any further changes are considered necessary these will be done as part of the annual Rules review process at the end of the year.
Rule 10.11 Revision - The use of Surepath has again provided significant data on boat path during jumping. With the current rule stipulating a “straight path” it doesn’t allow the driver to compensate for the skiers pull to the ramp thus creating a potentially unsafe scenario.

04Mar22 IWWF Executive Board adopts IOC recommendation on Russia and BelarusThe IWWF Bureau met yesterday and, in light of the current circumstances, agreed on the following resolution:
a. IWWF will not invite or allow the participation of Russia and Belarus athletes and officials in all IWWF approved events.
b. IWWF will not approve any event in Russia or Belarus.
All IWWF Confederations and affiliated Federations are required to comply with this resolution.
This decision aligns with the International Olympic Committee’s recent recommendation.
The IWWF is appalled by the war in Ukraine and its impact on innocent athletes, and deeply regrets that they are caught in this situation. The IWWF is looking forward to a speedy resolution of the conflict after which these athletes and officials will be welcomed back.

04Jun21 2020 World Over-35 Championships cancelledThe IWWF and French Waterski & Wakeboard Federation have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 IWWF World Over-35 Waterski Championships.
The event was originally scheduled to be held at Baurech Lake in France in September 2020 and then rescheduled to September 2021.
This decision was made in consultation with the event organiser, IWWF President, IWWF European Confederation President, IWWF World Waterski Council and IWWF Medical Committee.
With the global pandemic still affecting international travel, current quarantine requirements in France for some countries which will impact participation significantly and the uncertainties of organising an event in 3-months time, it was decided that cancelling the event is the best course of action, following IWWF’s social responsibility philosophy and to ensure the well-being of organizers and athletes.
The next IWWF World Over-35 Waterski Championships are scheduled to be held in 2022 and the host and venue will be announced in due course.

An important change that is effective immediately was made regarding the rope release as follows:
Recent competitions have shown the release person deliberately using the rope release (1m rope) to help the skier. This was never the intention of the rule change in 2019. It was decided unanimously to reinstate in rule 15.12 the wording “The release person may not adjust or move the rope in any way to take up slack or allow extra length. He must hold it in one position or release it. Using the rope to intentionally aid the skier will subject the skier to disqualification”. This unanimous decision will be posted on May 21st and come into immediate effect.
07May21 Waterski Council replaces Elite Rankings with Pro TourThe Elite Rankings were established in 2003 and continued through 2020.

31Jan21 The October 2020 Ranking list is now availableThe Waterski Council decided that because of the effects of the global pandemic which meant that many skiers did not have the opportunity to record scores in 2020 and that the total number of scores was greatly reduced, that the 2020 Rankings would be a combination of the 2019 rankings and the 2020 rankings. One important decision is that skiers would at least retain their 2019 ranking position in the 2020 rankings. The effect of this is that the actual ranking number assigned may not be in sequential order but nevertheless that is the official ranking.
