Adaptive Waterskiing

Come ‘n’ Try adaptive water skiing whilst enjoying a weekend at beautiful Sargood on Collaroy!

The New South Wales Water Ski Federation – Disabled Division, is a Water Ski program open to all ages with various physical disabilities. Each year we partner with them and Manly Warringah Waterski Club to provide a day of waterskiing on Manly Dam.

You’ll have access to a range of modified sit skis and other equipment including life jackets, ski ropes & handles that are available to be used by all skiers.

Water skiing is a great alternative sport that can operate on different levels, depending on your abilities and function. You can enjoy the experience of being towed behind the boat at a low speed or you can experience a faster speed and crossing & jumping in the wake. It is totally up to you!


  • Two tow sessions with support from our adaptive recreation team
  • Transport to and from Manly Dam in our accessible Toyota Hiace
  • BBQ Lunch at Manly Dam
  • Access to a range of wetsuits, booties and other water gear
