Henry Winkler’s father begged his son to tell his 'Happy Days' co-workers about his past as a water ski instructor. When he finally did, the writers wrote his skills into the show. Which is how the Fonz ended up "jumping the shark."

Wiley's Water Sports

With great sadness Wiley’s announces the passing of Paul Wiley, the founder and heart and soul of Wiley’s Water Skis.

Paul died at home on Sunday February 23rd, in Ketchum, Idaho – one of his favorite places in the world.
His loving wife Fran was with him.

Paul started making his beautiful wood waterskis in his garage in 1965. He eventually quit his day job and opened Wiley’s in South Seattle.

Paul was an artist and a salesman. From the beginning crafting the highest quality wood waterskis, to today where we continue his legacy of outfitting skiers and riders with the latest in technology.

As one of the first water ski manufacturers, he helped to make Seattle a thriving center of hand-crafted skis. Paul was a mentor to many, and employed hundreds of young water sports enthusiasts over the years.

We will miss him.
He was a wonderful, stubborn, ridiculously funny, and generous man!
