A resounding improvement on crossover skis, the OMNI is optimized for the skier who needs one ski to do everything. Developed for high versatility, the OMNI marries high performance skiing with the efficiency essential for open water skiing. The Omni's Flex-Frame provides increased torsional flex for the maneuverable feel of a traditional ski with the added speed & stability of a wideride ski. This allows the ski to twist creating tighter turns while added width provides the stable platform skiers need. The Omni was designed with a Hybrid Waist Width, halfway between those typically found in traditional skis and those in wideride skis. This provides for smooth instinctive turns at a wide range of speeds. Clean Edge Technology reduces drag 50% by allowing water to release cleanly off the bottom of the ski. This differs from conventional edges where water wraps around the bevel, up the sidewall and releases off the upper edge creating suction. The Clean Edge bevel-less tail offered in the Omni designs, Clean Edge 3.0, produces more acceleration with less skier input. In addition, we've enhanced stability by maintaining more bevel between the rear foot and fin. The result is a fast moving highly efficient ski with the handling required for tight line turns. The Omni also features a SpeedSkin base, fish-scale inspired advanced laminar textured ski base reduces ski drag and increases ski speed by breaking up water molecules during ski to water contact. The HEX fin takes the traditional 2D waterski fin model to the next level by creating a NACA Airfoil inspired 3-dimensional fin for more lift and lower drag. Acting like an airplane wing, this surf style fin enhances ski versatility by increasing glide speed and turning properties.
KID'S SPECIFIC FLEX
A softer flex pattern results in easier maneuverability for smaller skiers at slower speeds
Increased torsional flex provides the maneuverable feel of a traditional ski with the speed & stability of a wideride ski
A waist width halfway between a traditional ski and a wideride ski provides for smooth instinctive turns at a wide range of speeds
CLEAN EDGE 3.0 TAIL
The Clean Edge bevel-less tail produces less drag and more acceleration with less skier input.
Instinctive turns with no paralleling
Added stability in turn balanced by low drag Clean Edge tail
Fish-scale inspired advanced laminar textured ski base reduces ski drag and increases ski speed by breaking up water molecules during ski to water contact.

HO has given the best-selling waterski boot of all time, the Animal, upgrades to improve on it's performance and functionality. The Animal boot now features a 100% natural rubber overlay, molded to the original Animal Overlay shape. This results in a snugger, more comfortable fit than ever before. The Front Animal boots is designed with a THICK rubber overlay for increased front boot control, while the Rear Animal Boot is designed with THIN rubber overlay for less back boot control to compliment front hardshell boots. Now with a softer durometer, heat moldable EVA tongue and heel, you'll have the rubber boot feel you want with far less overall weight. In addition, the new soften, thinner, brushed EVA footbed increases comfort and is designed to equalize skiers' front and rear foot height when using hardshell boots.
The super easy to use "slip them on and enjoy the ride" water ski boots are back! Dual lace zones with a low drag bungee upper and static lace in the lower lace zone that locks down the skiers foot for precision control. The removable footbed anchoring system makes mounting quick and simple while the Direct Connect Mounting System offers unmatched natural edge angle, a short flex footprint and micro adjustment. The freeMAX's unibody construction means no complexity of a liner, just low maintenance boots that fit great. Perfect for open water skiing of all types, the freeMAX boots offer a relaxed fit for an easy going ride.
