Cypress Gardens Skis, Please

When folks look for water skis, brand names like Obrien and Connelly come to mind.

The main brand that comes to mind, though, is the Cypress Gardens Dick Pope brand. The question is what happened to Cypress Gardens Dick Pope skis?

There was a Dick Pope Jr AND Cypress Gardens.

They were the standard, the inventor. This would be like one day going to a bike shop and there weren’t any more Schwinn bicycles, or no more Wilson tennis racquets.

  30. My dad taught me how to ski on Dick Pope III water skis. That was almost 40 years ago. I held onto those skis and used them off and on until we purchased a boat in 2003. At that time, I would try nothing else. Nothing was better than my Dick Pope III skis! They held up well until 2 years ago when the wood finally started to separating. I was able to go on e-bay and find a pair of Dick Pope Jr. skis. My heart will try nothing else!

  31. need a pair of dick pope jr. write if u will sell

  33. I have a pair that I was wondering what they would be worth. I never owned a boat but went to the lake with several families as a kid. I would carry my new Dick Pope Jr’s for the day and then bring them back home. Probably have not been used many times.
    Anyone want to buy them?
