Insider Secrets To Buying A Contour Water Ski Boom

Dec 18, 2007
I know what a waterskiing boom is, but what is a contour water skiing boom?

A contour water ski boom is used to teach water skiers, wakeboarders, kneeboarders, slalom skiers, and barefoot water skiers to learn without falling. A contour water ski boom has been bent to fit around side windshield frames and tower bases, and to get the boom clamp down below the taper that exists in a ski pylon.

If your boat came with a ski pylon, then you already may already have an idea of why a boom has to have a contour in in in order to work with your boat. Because pylons are fixed into the structure of the boat, this becomes the attachment point from which the boom is affixed in order to extend out the side of your boat to give the water skier a solid pole to hold onto instead of a rope handle.

Although there are ski pylons that have a consistent diameter to them, many have been tapered in order to look more appealing. Although it looks good, this tapered area is useless for attaching a boom clamp. In order to have a safe area to mount the boom, the clamp has to be lower than the tapered area in order to be safe.

If anyone ever made the mistake of putting the boom clamp on the tapered section of the ski pylon, it would never hold. Therefore the bend or contour of the boom, puts the clamp down below the taper on the ski pylon where it is safe to mount.

In order for a contour water ski boom to stay strong forever with all the bends and the leverage or water skiing, it must be constructed out of the best material. Years of product testing has shown that only high quality aircraft aluminum will meet these demands.

Aircraft wings are strong, flexible, and will never weaken over time. This same technology is what makes for a great barefoot boom that will last forever. One of the requirements for a boom is that only the highest quality aircraft aluminum is used. Many suppliers try to save money by using aircraft aluminum that is not the highest quality.

Fortunately, there is a huge tip I can give you to help determine the construction of your boom. All you have to do is look at the sections that attaches to the boom clamp. It needs to be solid aluminum and not hollowed. Knowledge of this simple fact sets you apart as an expert.

Another great insider tip is, always demand that your contour boom comes with a lifetime guarantee on all aluminum parts. The confidence of knowing that your boom was built to last forever will give you a great peace of mind knowing that your family and friends will be safe.

Contour water ski booms come in three flavors;

the single straight water ski contour boom, the universal contour boom, and the quad contour boom

The key to getting the contour boom that is meant for your boat, is to consult with someone who specializes in the fitting contour booms for you boat.
