    The New Year's Day Barefoot Challenge on Lake Norman is one of the longest running and most unique barefoot tournaments in the world. Held annually in Mundy Cove in front of Lake Norman Marina and hosted by the Carolina Show Ski Team, it combines barefoot waterskiing starts, tricks, and endurance into one scored and competitive adventure.

    Competitors are divided between boom, male, female, and open; there's a place for you in this tournament regardless of barefooting skill level. This is a USA Water Ski sanctioned event, and there are only 40 participant slots available.

    • USAWS Member competitors: $35
    • Non-USAWS member competitors: $45
    • All spectators: FREE! Bring your camera!

    Limited concessions will be available. Invite your barefooting friends to compete and see who will reign supreme! Pre-registration is available now on https://carolinashowski.org/events/2016-barefoot; event packets should be posted in a few weeks.

    In the past, the annual event has drawn participants from Wisconsin, Indiana, Tennessee, Virginia, New Jersey, and, of course, the Carolinas. While water and air temperatures vary, a heated waterfront building is available for the barefooters to change before running to the dock to take their run.


    Barefoot for a Cause

    Did you know that more than a million people die each year as a result of not having shoes to wear? Our barefoot tournament raises money and awareness for Samaritan's Feet International as they provide shoes to the nearly 300 million people who go without shoes each day. Please contact tournaments@carolinashowski.org for more details.
