At just 15 years old, Stefan Lippelgoos is taking water skiing to the next level by doing it barefoot.
Lippelgoos swept the gold at the Junior National Barefoot Water Skiing Championships in August, winning the title for tricks, jumps and overall.
Though the Union High School sophomore just entered the sport a little over a year ago, Lippelgoos is no stranger to the water.
The Lippelgoos family is part of the Portland Water Spectacular show ski team, which performs around the Pacific Northwest.
Lippelgoos hopes to compete at the next Barefoot World Championships in 2018 in Canada.
