Alissa Wedige's insight:

"The Physical Properties of Water." Water Physics. N.p., 9 Jan. 2008. Web. 15 Nov. 2013.

 

This is a great article that explains the physics behind water. Water plays a large roll into water skiing because the water skiier begins in the water, floats on top of it, and then ends up back in the water when her/his ski run is complete.
