The Parkes teenager –who is the daughter of Carolyn and Graeme Hoy –discovered the sport in 2014after watching her family participate in skiing on weekends away as a hobby.

She soon found herself asking her cousin to teach her how to ski barefoot before browsing the internet to see if there were any clubs she could join.

Carly and her father drove to Liverpool to check out the NSW Barefoot Club and she signed up.

“It was the environment I wanted to be around,” she said.

While her peers spent weekends studying, working or socialising, Carly was driving the four and a half hours to Liverpool to train on the Georges River –leavingFriday afternoons and coming homeSunday afternoons.

It was the many hours spent every weekend for the last two years that has earnt her a number of state titles and now a spot on the Australian team in the junior girls competition bound for the World Barefoot Championships in Wisconsin, USA.

Carly Hoy is currently ranked second in the country, winning silver at the 2015 and 2016 national titles, after only being involved in the sport for two years.

Carly leaves for America on Tuesday and will compete in both the slalom (crossing the wash) and tricks categories from August 14-21.

She was required to score more than 470 points to qualify for the championships, which she did with a personal record of 510 points at a qualifying tournament in Mulwala in Victoria on July 9.

“It’s exciting, [I neverimagined I’d get this far],” Carly said.

“I’m looking forward to the experience…my goal is to stay up and get all my tricks done in the [15 second] timeframe.

“It’s going to be different, a different location, different boat, I’ll be happy if I just come home in the top 10.”

Carly is currently ranked second in the countryin the sport, winning silver at the 2015 and 2016 national titles. She was also NSWchampion in both categories in the junior girls in 2015 and second in Victoria for tricks.
