Double Sails Propel Bather on Water Skis (Oct, 1937)

Double Sails Propel Bather on Water Skis

Oval sails fastened to rods that are held at shoulder level propel the wearer of new water skis. The novel marine footgear, worn during a recent California water carnival, are made of a buoyant framework, covered with canvas to form watertight compartments. Tied at front and back, they enable the wearer to skim along the surface. Changing the angle of the sails permits traveling across the wind.

    Pooh pooh away, snickerers. That gal’s husband probably invented the wind surfer and his kids own yachts now.
