Water Ski and Wakeboard Canada (WSWC) is pleased to announce Ryan Dodd as the recipient of the 2023 WSWC Male Water Ski Athlete of the Year Award! 

Ryan’s exceptional 2023 season began with a win at the Moomba Masters event in Australia, setting the stage for what would be a season of success. From there, Ryan’s winning streak continued as he claimed the top spot on the podium at the Masters at Callaway Gardens. 

As the season progressed, Ryan’s quest for excellence took him to California, where he once again took first place at the California Pro Am. However, it was the end of the season that brought Ryan even more success at the 2023 IWWF World Waterski Championships in Florida. 

Ryan emerged victorious the final time during the 2023 season at the World Championships, marking his fifth consecutive victory and earning him the title of 5-time World Jump Champion. This incredible achievement is a testament to Ryan’s unwavering commitment to excellence and his unmatched talent on the water. 

Join us in congratulating Ryan Dodd on this well-deserved award and celebrating his outstanding accomplishments this season. His remarkable achievements serve as an inspiration to athletes everywhere, and we are proud to honour him as the 2023 WSWC Male Water Ski Athlete of the Year.
