Live Life Above The Wake/ Leave your fear on the DOCK

April 11th 2015 Orlando WaterSports Center


To create positive experiences on the water for children with Autism and cognitive delays, breaking down stigmas and unleashing potential for greatness through individual teachable moments

In 2016 Above the Wake initiated a national autism awareness program named "Cable4ACause". It was started with the intent to promote inclusion and we felt that the cable park would be a great teaching/learning location. In 2017 we had 11 parks that participated in 7 different states. We are looking forward to 2018, and hopefully to add more parks as well. Our kids are able to do the activities that neuro-typical children do, sometimes an invitation is a powerful tool.

Hello ZUP Board, Intro to the ZUP

​The ZUP Board is like riding a snow sled behind the boat. Except this board allows many levels of learning for each riders comfort level. You can ride just holding the handles, or learn to grab the rope handle yourself. Then once you get more brave you can spin and do a 180 or a 360.  After you have mastered those tricks you can stand up on the board and ride like a pro!! Its all fun and all based on learning in stages. Kids love the ZUP and it is a great entry level learning tool as well for the seasoned rider. Hit the Button to go to the ZUP Website
