New World Open Men’s Tricks Record Set by 16-Year-Old Jake Abelson


June 26, 2023

16-year-old Jake Abelson from the USA has set a new World Open Men’s Tricks Record with a remarkable score of 12,720 points. This impressive feat has been officially approved by the IWWF World Waterski Council, marking a significant milestone in the world of waterskiing.

Jake Abelson achieved this record-breaking performance during the Ski Fluid Classic held at Lake Grew in Polk City, Florida, USA, on April 28, 2024. By scoring 12,720 points, Jake surpassed the previous World Trick Record of 12,690 points, which was held by Mexico’s Patricio Font.

Jake’s achievement is particularly notable as it not only sets a new benchmark for the Open Men’s category but also becomes the World Tricks Record for Under-17 Boys and Under-21 Men.

Ski Like The Pros! – We’re back again with another episode breaking down what some of the best skiers in the world do (and sometimes don’t do) really well, to be the best skiers they can be.

This week we take a step back….to uncover the keys to being able to work on what we discussed Last week (Ski Like the PROS || FPM Podcast #29) regarding 2 hands on the handle longer.

FOUR Rules for Swinging High on the Boat:

1 – Speed at Centerline

2 – Tight Rope Outbound (limit rebound of rope to the inside)

3 – Limit Deceleration of ski

4 – Keep Body/Ski (mass) as close to handle as long as possible moving outbound
