USA Water Ski & Wake Sports is saddened to learn of the sudden passing of longtime member Gordon Hall. Gordon, 62, of Martindale, Texas, was a multi-time national champion tricks skier, renowned water ski site developer, tournament organizer, and board member for the American Water Ski Association, National Collegiate Water Ski Association and USA Water Ski & Wake Sports.

In addition to being co-founder of the University of Texas water ski team in 1976, Gordon was an AWSA three-event Senior Judge, Senior Scorer, Pan American Judge and a State Safety Director. He was currently serving as chairman of the board for the American Water Ski Association and as treasurer of USA Water Ski & Wake Sports. Gordon’s contributions to AWSA, NCWSA and USA Water Ski & Wake Sports cannot not be overstated.

USA Water Ski & Wake Sports extends its sincerest thoughts and prayers to Gordon’s wife, Barbara, and the entire Hall family during this difficult time. He will be dearly missed.
