  • Description - Oahu Water Ski Club

    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. This strip island was formed when the area was dredged to form Seaplane runways for the famous Pan Am 'Flying Boats' of the 1950'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 OWCS sponsors three USA Water Ski (USAWS) sanctioned water-ski 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. The water conditionscan vary throughout the year, mostly dependent on the wind direction. The prevailing northeast trade winds create a cross wind which keeps the water very calm along the birm. If the wind is from the south or west the site is unprotected. Keehi Lagoon is a salt water estuary for a number of Oahu's mountain streams. After a heavy downpour the lagoon will have a layer of fresh water on top of the heavier salt water. The water depth averages about 8-10 feet with about 2.5 feet of tidal variation. The water temperature varies between 70-78 degrees during the year with late February being the coldest and August the hottest month.
