At Hobe Lake Ski Club, our mission is “waterskiing the way it should be.” To us, this means providing a welcoming atmosphere, a pristine private lake, a brand-new Ski Nautique boat, and professional coaching for skiers of all ages and abilities.
Members receive coaching from professional water skier and 12-time Belgium National Champion, Wim Decree; and national champion, Megan Lambert. We teach new skiers how to get up on two skis for the first time, introduce skiers to the slalom course, and provide coaching for advanced skiers.
To join, skiers must fill out a membership form, sign the required waivers, and pay an initial fee of $75. Joining as a Member provides access to the weekly calendar to sign up for ski sets. The initial fee is transferred to the skier account and is applied as credit towards the first ski set.
Click on the “Apply” tab to sign up for a membership and we look forward to seeing you out at the lake!
