$55 for a 60-Minute Private Wakeboarding Lesson ($100 Value)
On weekdays, Wake Sessions’ instructors teach people how to skim across roiling water during one-on-one lessons. To simplify matters, they supply all of the equipment, including Ronix wakeboards, bindings, ropes, lifejackets, and most importantly, the boat. Customers can choose to bring up to two friends to the wake session and evenly split the 60-minute session amongst each other.
Chris Laske and Mike Dowdy started wakeboarding when they were teenagers. Years later, after countless rides and competitions, they are far from bored with the sport, and at Wake Sessions they’ve branched out from wakeboarding into water skiing and other means of flying behind a motor boat. During the duo’s private and group lessons, their 2013 Malibu Wakesetter tears across Loon Lake, pulling veteran athletes and complete beginners alike. Like pretending to be a construction worker, wakeboarding is impossible without the proper gear, so the crew stocks equipment from high-caliber brands such as Hyperlite.
