Piper Cub ZK-BFV on the water.

We have all probably seen the South African Harvards water skiing on Utube.
On Saturday Gavin Wills in his Piper Cub ZK-BFV put on a very fine demonstration of this art.
It is thought to be the first public demonstration of this in NZ. It took place at the Wings Over Water Airshow at Lake Ruataniwha (Twizel) on Saturday the 22nd.

 Below is a short video clip of one of his several runs.
Very nicely done Gavin.


  1. Was he nearly "digging in" in the middle photo?

  2. Hi..I'm just wondering if I can get permission to use one of these in Australian Pilot? you can contact me on
