    Background: A new invention from Italy - water skis which do not give you a sinking feeling when the speedboat towing you begins to move forward or slows down to stop at the end of a run.

    The new "???itass" skis - invented by Pietro Vassena, of Lecco, Italy - differ from other water skis in being sufficiently buoyant to support 2 person's weight even when not moving over the water, and can be put to a variety of different uses besides water skiing.

    They are inexpensive, and are made from synthetic resins.
