George Blair was a successful New Jersey businessman in 1955 when he traveled to Florida at the age of 40 to recuperate from back fusion surgery.

An instructor at a ski school near Fort Lauderdale convinced George to try water skiing, back brace and all. His life hasn't been the same since.

Banana George talked to Growing Bolder about his record-setting life, which has included skiing on all seven continents and in 69 different countries and continuing to barefoot water ski well into his 90s.
