'Banana' George Blair, One of the Biggest Names in Water Skiing, Dies at 98
George Blair, affectionately known as "Banana George,"
rode the waves for more than 50 years
wearing a twinkle in his blue eyes, a grin behind his white mustache and a lot of yellow.
The Water Ski hall-of-famer who barefooted with boyish enthusiasm well into his 90s
died Thursday of natural causes at his home in New York City about 9 p.m. He was 98.
The Guinness Book of Records says Blair
is the only person to have skied on all seven continents
Wikipedia George A. Blair
George Alfred Blair (born January 22, 1915; died October 17, 2013)
was a successful businessman, entrepreneur, and waterskier,
known for his barefoot waterskiing and trademark yellow "banana"-like wetsuits.
