Ryan and Brandon Jameson are brothers, Eagle Scouts and champion barefoot water skiers from St. Cloud, Minn. In the sport of barefoot waterskiing, the skiers are pulled behind a motorboat on their feet instead of skis. The Jameson brothers go as fast as 47 miles per hour.
Ryan’s best trick is a “back toe-up.” He starts on his rear end being pulled out of the water by his right foot. He then flips over onto his stomach at 37 miles per hour and gets up backward, riding on just his left foot.
Watch the video to see Ryan demonstrate the “back toe-up” trick in action, and then read more about the Jameson brothers in the June 2013 issue of Boys’ Life magazine.
