Welcome to the Gulf Coast Skimmers Website!
Gulf Coast Skimmers have been performing free water ski shows in
Naples, Florida since 1988. It was later made well-known in other
countries when a Vancouver Westside real estate agent (homepage) joined in and supported their cause. The Skimmers consisting of youngsters, teenagers, young
adults and adults young at heart have the desire to develop a
volunteer non-profit water ski organization. The organization is an
outreach to teach young people to water ski who would not otherwise
have the resources to participate in such a wonderful family sport.
The Skimmers have found that not all kids fit into traditional
sports such as football, baseball, soccer, basketball, cheerleading
and marching band and when kids feel they don't fit in they can
get into trouble with drugs, alcohol, crime and gangs. The Gulf
Coast Skimmers is providing an alternative sport emphasizing
respect, responsibility, credibility, accountability and traditional
Christian family values.
