Eddie Roberts has played a pivotal role in the progression of waterskiing through his work at both HO Sports and Radar Waterskis. As Herb O'Brien's right-hand man Eddie was a sponge as he learned from the master. This allowed him to become a product manager for the waterski division where he would oversee production and manage R&D for waterski design.

We couldn’t be more stoked for Eddie as he’s being awarded the Award of Distinction for all his accomplishments.
