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.

Nestled on the shores of the eponymous southern Florida lake, Lake Okeechobee Resort is an ideal base camp for outdoor recreation. Popular pursuits here include bass fishing, boating, and hiking or bicycling along a segment of the 1,400-mile Florida Trail that wends around the lake’s perimeter. You can set off into the lake from the resort’s 100-slip marina. From its location on the southeastern side of the lake, the resort has a spot to watch sunsets over the water.

For those camping, Lake Okeechobee Resort has especially long lots for oversized RVs or sleeping bags designed for giraffes. An onsite restaurant, public bathrooms, and pool take the edge off of roughing it while staying at the campground or in the cabins.
