Cypress Lanes enthralls orb-launching visitors with rounds of bowling within its 40-lane facility. Imperfect aiming abilities receive a boost by bumper lanes, and all players can chase their perfect-game dreams during open bowl or by joining adult leagues or youth programs. Each Friday and Saturday night partakers can attend 2.5-hour Rockin' Bowl outings to enhance sessions with a thumping sound system, special-effect lights, and prizes such as bowling pins that clatter to the exact bassline of "Stairway to Heaven" when knocked down. Between frames, customers can relax on Cypress Lanes' outdoor smoking deck, peruse the pro shop, or compete in rounds of air hockey or Deal or No Deal in a redemption game room stocked with assortments of new prizes every week. Striker's Sports Cafe reenergizes clientele after each game with delectable bar fare.
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.
