$99 for a Half-Day Wakeboarding Lesson and Riding Session ($209 Value)
Novice wakeboarders start their lessons on dry land mastering balance and positioning before taking to the wake during two 15-minute water sets. Instructors customize their lessons based on student ability and skill; the sessions last up to four hours and include riding time, a gear bag backpack, a t-shirt, and all gear, though wakeboarders can bring their own gear if preferred. Sessions also include the boat, driver, fuel, and a boat wrangler, should the boat escape. Check the calendar for time slots and reservations.
Raging Buffalo's adrenaline junkies have turned their athletic addiction into a successful enterprise by offering snowboarding and wakeboarding lessons to beginners and experienced riders. In the summer, their instructors take to the wake for lessons that start at the wakeboard school—open since 2001—before taking students on 15-minute riding sessions. When winter comes, the instructors dry-dock their boards in local bear caves and show students how to navigate the drifts with snowboard lessons at their ski park, which opened in 1992. Additionally, Raging Buffalo plays host to a variety of events, from rail jams to USASA competitions.
