  • Description

    Water skiing on boards. United States of America.

    Sports; recreation. American Sea Sports'. featuring the 'boogie board' toy before it was called that--long long before as in 1917 or so. Early version of water skiing in USA. Side shot of motorboat passing; with a small group of passengers; behind the boat; 2 boards behind it; attached to boat. 2 people ride on each board; including kid on one guys' shoulders; and another kid standing behind the guy on the other board. Tracking shot from boat; looking back at the people on the boards going along in the wake.; they are doing a different position; one kid held up like preparing for a swan dive. A few more shots of various fun in the sea; until the tow boards crash into each other and the riders of one fall over the other board -- ha ha! slapstick comedy sort of thing.
