During our waterski shows we present all disciplines of watersports, from barefooting to wakeboarding. We entertain our audience with action, acrobatics and comedy….no matter what conditions we encounter
We cover the world of skiing…
Mission and Vision
A handful of ambitious young waterskiers founded the Malibu Show Team e.V. in 1991 as a registered club based in Erlenbach am Main. Today, the club counts 18 skiers, two boat drivers and one announcer.
We are driven by one common passion: Show Skiing. We thrive to share this passion not only in our training but also with the audience when presenting shows at a variety of occasions and events. At the same time, we are a local sport club with the goal to promote the sport of waterskiing amongst our youth and within our communities.
Part of our equipment is a 370HP waterski towboat (Malibu Response Barefoot Edition), two docks as well as an equipment trailer, which allows us to be ready for show skiing at any time and in any place. In our Trailer, we store: Regular skis, pyramid base skis, monoskis, stepoff-skis, swivelskis, shoeskis, trickskis, kneeboards, hydrofoil (Sky-Ski) wakeboard, discs, hooverboard, flyboard, costumes and much more...

where our river is.
For our shows we travel near and far, our training however is held at home: On the Main River near Erlenbach am Main. Here we meet on weekends from May to October at our site by the river, next to the Marina of Erlenbach. This is where we also keep our starting dock.
In our training sessions, all skill levels and ages get together with much joy for the sport and the ambition to constantly improve our show skiing. This is how we form a strong team and come up with spectacular waterski shows.
As a club we are always keen to welcome new and old talents on board. Send us an email, write us on facebook, give us a call or simply drop by for a trial session at our training site!
