Using good quality equipment to water ski is important
for several reasons with safety being one of the
primary ones. Making sure that you are equipped with
equipment of superior quality also ensures that the
tools used do not break while performing the activity.
However, the good news is that the sport does not
require too much equipment. While a boat is necessary,
and this is perhaps the most expensive of the
equipment, the others are a lifejacket and skies and a
rope to fasten to the boat.
In case a boat is not available, the skier could
fasten the rope to a vehicle and get someone to drive
it along the shore of the water body. This momentum
can also be used to ski.
If the vehicle is driven at speeds that are good
enough, then the skier would have no trouble to gain
enough momentum to be able to stand on the water.

A dry suit is something an avid water ski enthusiast
should invest in, apart from gloves and other forms of
protective gear such as kneecaps and helmets. The suit
would keep the skier dry.
More importantly, the streamlined design of the dress
would reduce friction and help the skier reach speeds
that would otherwise have been possible. The suit
could also absorb, at least to some extent, the impact
in the event of a crash.
This would save the skier from incurring bodily
injuries. Necessary caution should be taken while
performing as with any other adventure sport.
