Cooper Marley

Cooper Marley is 12. He is the son of Comedian Bob Marley, and he’s also a die hard water skier….I think he might actually love it more than I do!!

Coop had a school project for a class, on the topic of Changemakers, so he decided to call me up. Why?…I dunno. As humans, there is an innate desire to do what we can to make the world a better place. We wanna leave it better than we found it. But most people don’t have any idea how to accomplish that. There’s no “right way” and there’s not really a road map to follow. I am one of those “most people”, as I’m still trying to figure out how to become a change maker. But, Cooper is 12, and I’d say he’s well on his way.

This is a phone conversation between Cooper in Maine, and me in California, so the audio is not ideal, but I think its more than good enough.

Let me know what you think of this episode, and what you might want to see more of down the road!

A better ski for the type of skiing we love. Imagine the performance of a Syndicate ski, optimized with a low drag tail, for effortless open water free skiing. Few things in life are as exciting as whipping out on your pullout to see a mile of glass laid out in front of you. The acceleration. The arcing carve. The tight line. You settle into that effortless rhythm and just wish it would last forever. Imagine a water ski that could let you enjoy that moment for twice as long with half the effort. That is exactly what the HO Skis Cross- Over Collection was designed to do. If you are a water skier, you owe it to yourself to ride a HO Cross-Over Collection ski and create your moments.
