Water Skiing sport is a safe sport, when skiers and boat drivers understand and utilization common sense rules.

While undertaking water skiing if a skier fall down, driver comes to know through the signal that the skier is all right. It is a simple gesture of clipping both hands over the head, if this signal is not made the driver assumes an injury to the skier and come about instantly to help.
