Slalom skis fall into four style categories:

World class: World-class slalom water skis have rounded edges between the side and bottom, to allow for more aggressive turns during a slalom ski race.

Wide body: As the name implies, wide body slalom skis have extra width, which makes them an excellent choice for water skiing novices. Beginner slalom skis also tend to have sharper edges between the side and bottom of the ski.

Traditional: Traditional slalom skis are on the narrower side, and they are popular for competitive slalom water skiing because they turn easily.

Shaped: Shaped skis are midway between wide-body water skis and traditional water skis.
