Dean started his professional water-sports career at Sea World in Orlando and then went on to competing in wakeboarding. After winning the World Championship in 1993, Dean began his 5 year reign as one of the best in the World. As part of the Hyperlite family Dean had his own signature boards including the Lavelle and the Latitude. With all this experience and knowledge of wakeboard and other water disciplines, there was only one thing to do, teach!
Bobby was introduced to waterskiing at summer camp at the age of 11 and has been in love with the sport ever since. He worked in Lake Delton, WI for 8 summers as a Waterski / Wakeboard Specialist and Supervisor teaching children 8-16 years old. In Addition, he worked in Club Med Cancun as a Wakeboard / Waterski Instructor teaching adults. He is a current USA WATERSKI certified boat driver / instructor and is addicted to chasing buoys in the slalom course!
From children to adults, we are committed to making your first time experience a fun and memorable one. We use a static boom on the side of the boat to offer stability for the first time skier and allows the onboard instructor to watch closely and give continuous instruction. Once the student has mastered the boom, then it is off to the long line!
For the little ones, a first time skiing experience is especially important. LTS is dedicated to providing a safe, nurturing environment and understands the special needs of children. During early instruction, an additional coach may be placed in the water along side the student to provide safety, guidance and a little emotional security and encouragement.
We offer the best wakeboarding courses. Our courses cover all age ranges and skill levels from beginners to professionals. If you are a beginner in wake boarding, we will teach you how to surf a board and work with the board before you can jump it. We will make sure that you start slowly and progress naturally. We are sure that you will have lots of fun working with our dedicated instructors!
We operate on two perpendicular lakes that are 4000 feet long to protect against adverse wind conditions. We have two slalom courses and a time proven curriculum that is sure to get you around the buoys in minimal time. But watch out and be forewarned, "Buoys are addicting".
