In order to enter Brew Hounds Sports Lounge, one has to pass between murals of a football field and basketball court. Inside, flat-screen televisions glow with the day's games, blending with the neon of beer signs. Visitors looking to create some competition of their own will find it at the row of electronic dart boards, upon the pool table, or staring into the Yuengling mirror, waiting for the stranger on the other side to blink.

Situated in the center of a cluster of lakes, Chain of Lakes Kayak Rentals grants adventurers quick access to scenic nautical exploration. Half- and full-day tours expose visitors to local sights and waterways, giving them ample time to admire the lake’s verdant shores. Alternatively, hourly rentals of single and tandem kayaks let guests venture out at their own pace, paddling to the tune of their own drum or the drum their partner is beating instead of helping with the paddling.

Between them, Keith St. Onge and David Small hold all three current World Barefoot Water Ski records. Beyond their championship-caliber skills, they cement their positions as true ambassadors of the sport by training the next generation of barefooters at World Barefoot Center. Under the guidance of Keith and David’s personal coach, Gary "Swampy" Bouchard, the center’s instructors walk students through proper stances and basic techniques on dry land before taking small groups for trips skimming across Lake Conine and Lake Rochelle. The expert staff can easily recognize and correct weaknesses in form and recommend waterfront restaurants with loose requirements.

Riding waves since the age of five, wakeboarder and coach Dave Briscoe might feel more at home on the water than on land. His eerily natural control of the board and uncanny ability to reel off ollies, wake jumps, and surface spins landed him a roll in the movie "H20 Extreme" and propelled him into countless pro tour finals, a European Championship win, and induction into the New Hampshire Sports Hall of Fame.

Though his resume bespeaks wild skills, as a teacher, Dave excels at patience. He loves spreading the word of wakeboarding to novices as well as discussing advanced techniques with seasoned vets.
