Hydrofoil Exhibition Held Saturday

Mike Murphy, inventor of the Sky Ski hydrofoil, put on an exhibition during the Dale Hollow Lake Fly-In.

The Tennessee "Fly-In" Club held a hydrofoil exhibition Saturday, June 10 at Sunset Marina on Dale Hollow Lake. A hydrofoil is a ski device pulled from a boat like regular water skis. Bindings close to the ski are attached to the skier's feet and a seatbelt holds the skier in the seat. Hydrofoils allow riders to perform flips and jumps that may not be possible with regular water skis. Hydrofoilers from across the country visited Dale Hollow Lake for the event, which was insured by American Water Ski Association. Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers helped with the fly-in. The event will be held again in June of next year, according to the organizers.(photo by Pat Horn and Francis Copeland)
