Lynn was a Cypress Gardens skier from 1969 until 1991. In that 22-year span of time he went from being the most respected performer in the show to the show director. He drew his interest in ice-skating and dance to refine doubles and swivel. Lynn also was an accomplished tournament skier, one of the few at the time who was a member of the 150-foot jumping club. He was an early president of the National Show Ski Association and is responsible for many of the show skiing rules that are used today.
