San Diego State and Their Jump Ramp Dreams

Every week we will release a digest of team news, announcements, or updates that have been sent our way to help spread amazing news of our teams from across the nation! Still burning slow on submissions this week, but SDSU has us covered with their hard work, so here we go!

SDSU Water Ski Works Hard on a New Jump Ramp

After years of fundraising and preparation, the San Diego ski community that frequents Mission Bay is finally inching closer to having a jump ramp in the city of San Diego. A big part of this community, the San Diego State Water Ski and Wakeboard Club (Facebook | Instagram) is especially excited to have a ramp to train on, and looks forward to a great opportunity to lift their jump team up in the national rankings.

The ramp previously resided at Warman Lake in the state of Washington, and arrived in San Diego on the 6th of March. Since the arrival of the jump the SDSU team has worked countless hours trying to prepare the ramp for the salt water of Mission Bay. Former “Freshman of the Month”, Little Ben, summed up the attitude of the team after a full day of grinding rust off the ramp, exclaiming “I just wanna jump!” The work is long and hard, but the reward of a 3-event training facility in our very own backyard makes it all worth it.

Right now, the goal is to have the ramp in the water in time for some last-minute spring tournament training. Until then, it’s back to the daily grind.
