WATER SKI AND WAKEBOARD CANADA’S HALL OF FAME – BUILDER
With extensive experience in the sport of water skiing, Dave was an influential builder of the sport in Canada. As a competitive water skier, Dave won numerous water ski events and earned several Canadian records. As a builder, he was instrumental in helping to bring the first pro tournaments to Canada in the 1980s and 1990s; and was a respected Driver and Technical Controller for many provincial and National events.
An alumnus of the Water Ski and Wakeboard Ontario Board of Directors, Dave’s post-athletic career saw him continuing to give back to the sport by way of involvement at the executive level for multiple championship events and committee work. A stalwart supporter, Dave was always at the ready to give back and share his passion and knowledge for the sport and has been credited with imparting his vast knowledge and building many of Water Ski’s community of leaders.
Dave’s love for the sport was relived through his son, Jeremy, whom he helped coach to win several Canadian Nationals and the World Championships in both water skiing and wakeboarding. Influential in the growth and development of the sport, Dave has left an indelible mark on the community and the sport.
