Wakeboard/Waterski Lessons $100 per hour

Above The Wake is a family- owned and operated business since 2014. I started working with kids at the YMCA CAMP TIMBERS in 1991, and my passion for working with kids has never diminished. I coach multiple youth  sports, and realized there were kids out there that needed some extra attention.  I work with adults with mental and physical disabilities and that passion has grown within me to work with children with special talents. Above The Wake was started with the intent to give positive experiences on the water to children affected by autism, to aid in recovery as well to put smiles on faces.  We know that all children have potential and are not defined by a diagnosis.

Whether you're looking for an afternoon excursion, a break from reality or special family time, we have the gear and expertise to help you enjoy the great outdoors.
