EP60: Ski Talk with Marina Mosti


Welcome back to The Water Ski Podcast for Episode 60 with Marina Mosti!

Marina is a highly accomplished retired Pro Skier and among the very best Italian skiers of all time.

Matteo had to work hard to get this interview, as Marina is as modest as she was competitive on the water worldwide. With multiple accomplishments in all three disciplines, Marina was primarily known for her jump and trick skiing. Inevitably, that made her at any overall events, including the Worlds, the US Masters, Moomba Masters, and US Open to mention a few.

Sit back and enjoy this conversation, as Marina tells her story, the ups and downs of a career dedicated to be the very best water skier she could be. Marina also kindly shares her experiences as a coach, and her passion to pass on her knowledge and experience to younger skiers.

EP56: Ski Talk with Claudio Köstenberger


Episode 56 of TWSP is a great long conversation with Claudio Köstenberger!

Claudio is among the top Jumpers in the World, a master story teller, and straight up genuine guy! In this episode Matteo gets to learn more about the very early skiing days of Claudio, followed by a recollection of Claudio's junior and collegiate days that saw the two of them following a very similar path. The second part of the episode is more topic-based in nature. Here, Claudio speaks his mind about what he deems is wrong with the Zero Off system for jump, the ongoing quest for success at the European Championships, the limbo of choosing between a life in Austria or in the United States, and his thoughts about the US Masters after his participation in them.

Sit tight for this one ;)
