This film shows a group of 5- to 7-year-old children learning to water ski in a pool shaped like the state of Florida. A three-wheeled motorized cart with a boom arm and ski rope pulls them along in the pool. Then, a youngster and teacher ski on the lake. The film is silent up to this point. Viewers see scenes of tourists, flowers and belles in plantation gowns. Next is a game of outboard water polo, played by four couples in small fiberglass dinghies with a 5-foot diameter beach ball.
