Winners Ride Maherajah Skis!
CATALINA SKI RACE 2017
Bob Maher is the oldest water ski manufacturer in the world, he had began building water skis in the 1950s when he was 12. He has built 90,000 skis and takes pride in saying that he has brought smiles to 90,000 people all over the world.
In 1957 Bob began winning ski races in San Francisco Bay, Monterey Bay and at Lake Isabella. Bob had also skied the Catalina Race 7 times, twice with his daughter Mary in "mixed doubles". Mary is on the U.S. team competing in the World Ski Race Championships in Tacoma Washington and Bob couldn't be more proud! Skiing the gruelling Sydney Bridge to Bridge in 59 minutes when he was 52 is one of Bob's most memorable races.
In 2012 he was inducted into the Water Ski Hall of Fame for "design & innovation". Today's skis feature many of these innovations. Bob is most excited these days about his NEW Crown Longboard ski. Maherajah has built skis for many world champions, in both racing and slalom. If a skier isn't on MAHA, chances are it's a copy!
