Wake Island Watersports has decided to do away with the most cumbersome part of waterskiing and wakeboarding: the boat. Instead of a speeding vessel hooked to a towline, the park has a five-tower cable system on a 9-acre lake. Boarders hold on to a rope that's connected to the motorized cable, which pulls them across the water at the ideal speed for thrilling straightaways and tricks. Though the cable mimics the feeling of being behind a boat, it has advantages of its own. For example, its 37-foot height provides more lift, leading to impressive airtime for tricks such as switching your board out for a shocked swan. Another advantage: multiple riders can use the cable at the same time.

In addition to its main cable course, Wake Island Watersports has a two-tower cable system ideal for lessons and private parties. A cable pass includes all of the rental gear necessary to skim over the lake, from a life vest to the board itself. Advanced boarders can even slide and flip on obstacles from Rad Rails; however, they need to either provide their own board or rent a pro model board from Wake Island. Click here for a highlight video of all of Wake Island Watersports' activities.

The park specializes in cable wakeboarding, but has several other attractions within its 80-acre expanse. There's a large lake for traditional, boat-driven waterskiing, available to members, as well as a smaller lagoon for paddle boarding and having quiet dates with your reflection. Observation decks line these areas for those who'd rather spectate or browse the internet on free WiFi.

Andy Siebert floated in the water, weightless—almost as if in outer space—and watched as all 40 feet of a Galapagos Island whale shark drifted past him. It’s moments like that one that Andy lives for, having devoted his life to scuba diving. He took his first dive as a teenager, but didn’t take the sport seriously until he turned 42, at which point he began his journey to log more than 3,000 dives.

Now, as owner of Scuba World, Andy works to help others discover their love of the underwater sport. One part retail shop and one part scuba-diving school, the PADI five-star IDC dive center is chock-full of gear for purchase and rental, as well as expert instructors who teach classes for divers of all levels, including instructor-level classes. Their classes range from beginner discovery sessions to open-water-certification courses to rescue-diver classes for the more advanced diver who is worried about all those fish in the ocean who need help getting out. Andy’s wife and partner, Lynn Siebert, plans trips that take divers to waters all over the world, including the nearby Monterey Bay and more far-flung expeditions in Micronesia.

To Jeff Putnam, fly-fishing isn't just a sport; it's also his work, his leisure, and a large part of his identity. He first pulled on fly-fishing gear at the age of 11, and at 16 began guiding fishermen through the trout- and bass-inhabited waters of Northern California. Since then, he's also worked as a fisherman's guide in Montana and Colorado and cast his line over waters as far away as Belize and Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean. During group and private lessons, Jeff demonstrates fly-fishing techniques before participants try them out themselves. With his guidance, they learn many ways to hook finned prey from streams and lakes, or to snag inflatable rafts from neighbor's swimming pools.

In just about 20 minutes, anyone can sail through the air on a Flyboard, even if they've never set eyes on the jetpack-like device before. Using a water-propulsion system driven by the thrust from a personal watercraft, Flyboards attach to riders' feet, lifting them up and over the water or letting them arc over the wakes like a dolphin. California Flyboards, which also sells the equipment, uses the Sacramento River to offer rides on the easy-to-use system. Take a look at a video of Flyboards in action, or just visit a skate park circa 2080 to get a general idea.

After sampling the fruits of France's Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Champagne viticulture regions, friends and entrepreneurs Jordan Rasmussen, Matt Iaconis, and Edward Brown founded a winery of their own. Shunning the corner-cutting, crass commercialism, and cabernet-fueled buyout binges of large corporate wineries, the trio practices the craft with a passion—concocting mouthwatering still and sparkling wines from local harvests. The hardworking vintners invest plenty of time and effort into every batch of bubbly or vino, proudly displaying the fruits of their labors to the public with lively tastings and soirees.
