Seca Marine + Surf Shop
A short jaunt from Wood Lake, Seca Marine + Surf Shop ensures both boat captains and those riding the waves behind them savour the water in style. Its maintenance shop minimizes the hassles of boat ownership with teams of on-site and mobile mechanics, who revitalize vessels whatever their trouble. Its technicians can not only repair broken parts but also transport boats, install stereos and other boat accessories, or protect vessels from the elements with shrink wrap to avoid the headache of finding a boat-sized Ziploc bag. While their boats rest up in the shop, patrons can draw on a rental fleet composed of two spacious models.
Over at the centre's Watersports School, coaches harness their competition experience to impart the techniques of wake surfing, wakeboarding, waterskiing, and stand-up paddleboarding. Their in-depth lessons teach students to navigate the water safely and stylishly rather than constantly stopping sharks to ask for directions. More experienced aquatic athletes can rent equipment for independent expeditions.
