Cool recycling of those water skis. You must have found the legendary water ski graveyard.

Very kewl indeed. I also like that propped open shudder look and how everything looks like it has been there for years...weathered by the sea. Do you have a sound machine set to crashing waves against the shore...you know...more ambiance for the background when playing your exotica music and clicking cocktail glasses. GREAT JOB!!!

Great job on the backyard, thanks for sharing.

Those look like old skis from Florida's Cypress Gardens near Orlando.


here is a neat old video from "back in the day". Notice the very un-PC rebel flags.
That area still has allot of rebel flags flying. They closed down in 2003 but thankfully re-opened soon after under new ownership.

I can remember visiting this place as a wee lad (over 35 years ago) and I actually have a slalom ski with American flag graphics from Cypress Gardens from around the late 60's early 70's.

I learned how to ski on Cypress Garden "Super Groove" Ski's. Things would give us terrible blisters!


I wish I still had them because they sell now for over $100.00 - $150.00 each. I try and keep an eye out for them as they pop up every once in a while on ebay or at local garage sales. Love the chairs take care of them, they are unique pieces of Americana.
