Is water skiing like snow skiing?

You are on skis and that's about it. I suppose some of the balance required is the same but it's really different positioning with your center of gravity and posture. As much as surfing is like snowboarding! Watch out for the edges!

Water skiing is harder than snow skiing. You need strong muscles to be able to stay up on water skis.

How is swimming a example of fluid friction?

When you swim, your skin and the water connect and rub, even if if it doesn't feel like it, as you glide through the water. Seeing as friction is defined as "the rubbing of the surface of one body against that of another," it is a perfect example of fluid friction.

There are a few different speeds to go while water skiing, depending on what you are doing. If you are just going on two skis at a beginner's pace you will want to go about 20-30 mph. If you are Solomon skiing (one ski, advanced) you will have you go a bit faster, about 30-35 mph.

Is water skiing dangerous?

A more appropriate question would be, "Could water skiing be dangerous"? Yes, the sport can be dangerous. However, the same could be said about virtually any sport. The more tricks you perform, the more risk you assume. Also, a bad boat driver could increase your risks of injury as well. Just remember, it is still much much safer than the drive to the lake. You can take safety precautions such as wearing a water helmet and life vest. Water skiing is both challenging and extremely fun. I say get out there and rip it up!

How old do you have to be to water ski?

You can be almost any age to water-ski. I have seen kids starting out at four with double skies that are hooked together to prevent doing the splits.

You can be any age as long as they are comfortable having a go, the main thing is, is that a responsible person is taking control of the boat to reduce chances of injury.
