INTRO For 46 years Connelly has been creating water skis that perform and last.

These steps grace the edge- to-edge tunnel of the ski, which reduces drag and helps speed with less wetted surface area. The result is a smooth quiet...

Clean, smooth andfast, the Fl delivers on all points. A perfect blend of carbon graphite andfiberglass gives you light weight and durability that will outlast any carbon ski on the market....
