About

The Oahu Water Ski Club was founded in 1961 by a group of water-skiers who wanted to promote the sport and have fun together. The club site is located on the Island of Oahu and adjacent to the Honolulu airport inside Keehi Lagoon. The actual club house is located on a strip island called the Birm, and is directly across from the Keehi Lagoon State Boat Harbor launch ramps (see Contact & Location menu for map). This strip island was formed when the area was dredged to create protection for the Keehi Boat Harbor from tidal surges. The Makai side of the birm was dredged to create an area specifically for water skiing. The whole (triangular) area was created to form Seaplane runways for the famous Pan Am “Flying Boats” of the 1930’s. The club site has been used for competitive water-ski events since the early 1960’s with many national and regional competitors calling “The Birm” their home. Currently the OWSC sponsors two USA Water Ski (USAWS) tournaments per year. The ski site is fully equipped to run slalom, tricks, wakeboard, and jumping with a sub-buoy slalom ski course and judges towers. The club maintains boat docks and a clubhouse on the birm for the use of club members only. You will need a boat ride out to the clubhouse, as the site is surrounded by water on all sides.
