September 16th, 2017, Rock Island, IL, 6 area ski teams teamed up to break their own Guinness World Record for the Largest Human Water Skiing Pyramid Formation. Previously set in 2013 with 60 people behind 1 boat, the Aquaducks and area ski teams successfully built a human pyramid with 64 people behind 1 boat, powered by (3) 300hp Evinrude G2 motors.
Show skiers have been attempting to break this record since 2014. After Guinness reviewed the 2017 footage, they successfully announced the new World Record on Monday, August 9th. These ski teams do not plan on stopping here though. This September will host a goal of 72 people in formation, behind 1 boat.
The “Ducks” would like to thank Evinrude for all of their support and power for show ski teams across the nation. Also, a big thank you to the Backwater Gamblers Water Ski Team in Rock Island, IL for hosting, and to everyone who made this new record possible.
