Italian Water Ski and Wakeboarding Federation

History of FISW

Costitution

Although some exhibitions were carried out in 1924 off the coast of Capri, activity in Italy, as in the rest of Europe, started after the Second World War, through the promotion of the Water Ski Club of Milan. The first competitions date back to 1947. The first organisation handling water skiing was the Italian Water Ski Union (UISN) established on 12 November 1950 and operating - on the recommendation of CONI - within the area of the Powerboat Federation. On 14 February 1952 the Board meeting of the clubs ratified the autonomy of the FIM changing the name to the Italian Water Ski Federation (FISN). Welcomed into CONI as a supporting member on 16 December 1962, after two unsuccessful attempts the Federation was officially recognised on 10 December 1971.

Denomination

In 1948 Unione Italiana Sci Nautico (UISN or “Italian Water Ski Union”), in 1952 Federazione Italiana Sci Nautico (FISN or “Italian Water Ski Federation”) and from 2011 Federazione Italiana Sci Nautico e Wakeboard (FISW or “Italian Water Ski and Wakeboarding Federation”).
