Western Wood

    Newer Older

    Last water ski of the season and my wife is showing us her stuff. This old wood ski from many years ago still out performs many of the newer one's. And the company is long gone.

      I did a search tonight for Western Wood water skis and this photo was among the results...I am thrilled to see this as my Grandfather, Ray Kruger was the founder and CEO of Western Wood. My Father Roy took over after my Grandpa retired. They took GREAT pride in their skis and at one time were the worlds largest producers of water skis in the world. My Grandpa and Dad were smart enough to see a gas crisis was coming and sold the business in the early 70's before people had to stop boating because of the gas shortages. I have a great picture of my Dad that was on the cover of Business Week waterskiing in his business suit and holding a briefcase. Just wanted to say thanks for loving the skis and you made my night.
