2014 WAKE @THE LAKE



​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

2020 Paddle in the Park Dates @ Haithco Park Saginaw MI

​TBA

Non Profits of the Watersports industry are purchasing gift cards from local restaurants and distributing them to hospitals, first responders, children's homes and foster families. 

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. 

Above the Wake does not solely do large scale events. We do private lessons for individuals, families and small groups as well, individualized for all of our kids we work with. Please contact us at 989-412-5366 for questions or to set up some time for us to work with your family. We can set up lessons statewide to paddle board if you have a spot to ride.
