Profile & Philosophy

Seth Stisher

Seth Stisher, owner of Seth Stisher’s Water Ski Training Center at Oz, has been coaching slalom since 1994 and has been doing traveling clinics since 1998. His philosophy of waterskiing centers around teaching you the best technique and training methods based on what you already know while maintaining a relaxed, enjoyable coaching/learning environment. His lifetime involvement in the sport and in the industry is due to an intense passion for waterskiing and gratitude for all that the sport has done for him. He is a student of the sport as well as a coach and trainer. Seth¹s specialty is slalom (although he coaches other events when necessary depending on your level) and he is available at his WaterSki Training Center (located at Oz, in Charleston, South Carolina) or for Clinics at your Site or a site near you.

“I truly love what I do, whether I am skiing, coaching, or spending time discussing training, equipment, or water ski philosophies with my friends and clients. Like anyone, there are days that are tougher than others, but when I jump in the boat or jump on the water, I realize that I am the luckiest guy on the planet and I try to share that excitement and passion with the people that ski with me.”

Personal Info

The support I receive from my family, my kids, Madalyn and Landon, insures that whether I am coaching or skiing, I have no excuses for not being at my absolute best. I can’t thank them enough for that.

  • Children:  One daughter, Madalyn, born in 2003, and one son, Landon, born in 2008
  • Hometown:  Grew up in Arab, Alabama and skied through his youth on Guntersville Lake in Guntersville, Alabama but living in Charleston, South Carolina since 1998
  • Education:  Graduated from The University of Alabama in 1998 with a BS in Secondary Education and skied for the University of Alabama Water Ski Team where the team had both a 2nd and 3rd place finish during his years. Seth was also the National Collegiate Slalom Champion while skiing at Alabama.
