Colin was our wake board instructor and boat driver. He was super patient, helpful, and had a great attitude. I would recommend this place to anyone that wanted to try wake boarding. They also had a lot of other activities like paddle board.

we used the layal and the paddleboards, other were jetskiing. Lots of fun, easy to paddle board because the water is very flat. Fairly inexpensive and good for kids
