The World Barefoot Center (WBC) was established in 2009 and is a derivative of the old ski shop / ski school platform. Unlike other ski schools, the WBC is comprised of a partnership incorporating two of the best barefoot water skiers the sport has ever known. Between USA's Keith St. Onge and UK's David Small, the two competitors hold all three current world barefoot water ski records and covet 95% of the worlds most prestigious barefoot water ski competition titles.

Both athletes are young, strong, educated and well-spoken gentlemen. ey are both held in the highest regard as two of the greatest ambassadors of the barefoot water ski community in the world. Gracing multiple magazine covers, international endorsements and hosting hundreds of students annually, both Keith and David have changed the way we will all look at the future of water skiing's most extreme sport, forever.
