The Aquanut Water Shows team competed at the 44th Indmar Marine Engines Division 1 Show Ski National Championships, Saturday, Aug. 11, in Janesville. The Aquanuts placed fourth in the overall competition following, Rock Aqua Jays (Janesville, WI), Mad City (Madison, WI), and Wonder Lake (Wonder Lake, IL).

The 2018 Willa Cook winner of the Nationals Tournament was Aquanuts member Kailey Koehler, who was the
most valuable female skier this year. Kailey skied barefoot circles, swivel, doubles, and was on the pyramid team and the National Champion Ballet Line.

The Aquanuts had three team members named to the Team USA. Swivel star, Grace Gurda, as well as, wake boarder/trick skier/Wisconsin State Freestyle Jump Champions Ethan Shulda and Kailey Koehler, barefoot champion. These individuals will compete at Show Ski Worlds in 2018, in Ontario, Canada.

This year’s Aquanut show director, Chad Hart, took the audience to the Gulf of Mexico shores to a spring break bar called the “Flora-Bama” which suffers a hurricane and rebuilds with the help of all the enthusiastic local residents.

The Aquanuts have high flying jumpers, beautiful and graceful swivel and ballet ladies, trick skiers with intricate moves, fast boats and barefooting skiers all on the water within the hour long show.

The Aquanuts are a 501c3 charity organization with shows on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 6 p.m. from Memorial Day to Labor Day in Lance Park, Twin Lakes.
