The Big Daddy is the ski that everyone talks about, the everyman ski that will bring every skier back to their youth. The wide-body nose format allows for ease out of the water while also providing plenty of stability. A Closed Cell PU Core allows the Concept to be stronger and more durable while also staying more forgiving out of turns. A fibreglass construction allows the ski to have a comfortable and forgiving natural flex, keeping smooth across the wake and stable in those ever-changing conditions. Completed to perfection in the US of A, the Big Daddy has become the perfect way for skiers of any size, shape, and age to jump back on the slalom and get that feel back on the water.
The Shadow is the boot with comfort and freedom at the forefront of their mind, allowing for plenty of control from boot to ski. With a lycra toe and heel wrap, the Shadow provides a snug fit, but combine it with the plush EVA footbed, and you get a complete and comfortable package around your foot. Connelly produced their signature superlight baseplate to reduce weight so that you can maximise your performance with less weight underneath your foot and with a shorter cuff for added freedom.

Waterski Features


  • Broader Flat Spot – An increased flat spot from the tip of your front foot to the end of your back provides the ultimate stability; you’ll never feel off-balance or uncomfortable on a ski. And if you find yourself sitting too far back on a cut, it will automatically pivot you back to the centre.
  • Subtle Rocker – The tip and tail allow the ski to always provide a constant level of speed and stability across the wash and allow for smooth, comfortable turns.


  • Flex Rating(1=Soft, 10=Stiff) – 5/10
  • Reactional Glass Flex Sequence – Works in tandem with the C.A.P.T tech; it is a softer flex profile that will flex and shape as you choose to move, giving you the ultimate control, all with absolute comfort.


  • Closed Cell PU Core – The most well-known core in waterskiing, with a tighter knit construction to reduce weight while remaining durable and providing a slightly softer feel meaning you can ski for longer, feeling less tired, while also getting more flex into turns and less rebound when crossing the wash


  • Fibreglass Laminates – The most forgiving top layer you can get, a simple fibreglass laminate allows the ski to provide a comfortable flex and smooth arcing turns.


  • Wide Profile – The highest volume ski on the market creates the ultimate water disruption and comfort for any big guy, creating easy deep water starts and effortless turns
  • Traditional Angled Bevel – A traditional angled bevel throughout the whole ski keeps the motion from edge to turns comfortable and stable, reducing that locked-in feel across the wash, even when skiing at a slower speed.
  • C.A.P.T. (Connelly Advanced Profile Technology) – The original profiled construction, allowing skis to reduce weight and specifically tailor a flex pattern to various points in the ski


  • C.A.T (Connelly Tracking System) – A centre channel in the centre of the ski allows for directed water flow, creating stability and ease to pivot into your leading edge at slower speeds
  • Tunnel Concave – The most traditional of shapes, great for entry-level skiers for its ability to stay straight when needed, meaning you can back it off and comfortably sit behind the boat. Despite this, it will perform and get on edge when you want the response.
