St. Onge is Imagining and Achieving.


Not sure why he is featured on their website, seeing as Water Skiing isn't an Olympic sport, but Keith St. Onge, he of the extreme barefoot prowess, is given some prominent love on the US Olympic website.

We are all for as much pub as anyone in the Waterski world can get, and to come off so well, very humble and smart, makes it all the better.

Here is a quick passage from the article that I think is really nice.
"But in 2002, St. Onge, competing in a world competition, should have easily won the overall gold medal. A few small mistakes was all it took, and a heartbroken St. Onge turned to friend Patrick Wehner.

After listening to a dejected St. Onge crying on his shoulder, Wehner handed him a small, laminated card.

“If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.” Those were the words printed on the card.

St. Onge knew these words were true, as he was essentially living his dream, but he had bigger dreams, and he was ready to rise to greatness in the world of barefoot water skiing.

“I brought this card everywhere with me,” St. Onge said. “I always looked at it, always pulled it out, always read it.

“I’m gonna pass it on to the next person that needs it just as much as I needed it back then,” he said."
YO!! The CRB could use some love!!

Thinking about this some more, the Rowboat has been seriously lacking in our love given to Barefooters. That makes us sad.

KSO and Scarpa? Come on, CRB...get with it!!
