Today a legend has passed away, Robbie Graham was a towering presence in Australia’s water skiing landscape. A fabulous skier a great leader and the original Ski Show Director for the first Aussie Moomba Masters Ski Show. Never one to shy away from a challenge, if Robbie said it could be done, his loyal band of skiers achieved it. Robbie loomed large in all our lives for many years. Life goes on but I’m sure everyone will look back over those years with a sense of pride and a love for the good mates  we had and the fun times we shared.

Robbie Graham you will never be forgotten my thoughts and prayers to Kerry and his families.
