EP89: Ski Talk with Jacinta Carroll (Part 2)


Welcome back to The Water Ski Podcast for the second part of Matteo's interview with Jacinta Carroll.

Jacinta is the current and 5-time World Jump Champion, the first female jumper to break both the 60m and 200ft barriers, and without a doubt the most dominant jumper of all time. In fact, Jacinta has won every event she has entered in the last 9 years! So, how does a champion like this come about? Who took part in the development and preparation? When did she start to be successful? Why hasn't she stopped improving? These are just some of the overarching questions Matteo seeks to answer in this interview. In this second part, Jacinta and Matteo talk about the history of the quest for the 200ft jump, the day it happened, the consequences of that performance, and what all of this meant to her and to the sport. Towards the end of the interview, the two discuss the current state of women's jumping and what role she could have in its growth.

Thank you for tuning in and see you next week!

EP87: Ski Talk with Lauren Morgan


Welcome back for another episode of The Water Ski Podcast!
This week, Matteo sits down with Lauren Morgan, one of the World's top jumpers and a PhD Candidate in Criminology and Criminal Justice.

In typical TWSP fashion, Matteo asked Lauren about her beginnings and early competitive days in the sport. Although not particularly into water skiing at first, Lauren got the competitive bug and quickly became one of the best skiers in her area, in the United States, and in the World. Currently, she is also pursuing a PhD, so host and guest share stories about the challenges of the academic life and juggling that with skiing at a high level.

This was a very fun chat with a driven and very self-aware water skier!

Enjoy it and see you next week :)

EP85: Ski Talk with Matt Rini (Part 1)


Welcome back to The Water Ski Podcast for Episode 85 with Matt Rini!

Matt is one of the most famous and sought after water ski coaches in the world. In this first of two parts, Matt guides Matteo through his journey into water skiing. At first a summer passion, water skiing gradually became a passion and a sport in which Matt and his brother were pursuing excellence. Matt's story is also a good window onto the water ski scene in Central Florida in the Mid 80s and early 90s, a context ripe with water ski stories. Towards the end of the episode, Matt talks about his transition out of competitive skiing and into the early days of his coaching and ski school.

Part 2 will be straight coaching talk. Until then, enjoy :-)
