Welcome to 2019

Lately, we’ve made some improvements to our website to help streamline our sign-up procedure. After signing up, our skiers find it convenient to book ski sets for a specific date and time.  This gives them the opportunity to maximize their skiing and still have time for other activities during the day.  

There’s something about that feeling—as the sun comes up in the morning and you slip into your boots.  The rope comes tight, you smile and yell “Hit it!”

That’s what we live for!

Wim Janssens from Belgium has been doing just that. Enjoy the video that he shot at our lake using his GoPro.

Come ski with us, we are very excited to share the 2019 season with you!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

The entire team at Hobe Lake Ski Club in South Florida wishes you a very happy and peaceful holiday season and a prosperous 2019!

Wim and Steve MannSteve Mann ran the course for the second time ever at 68 years old and his wife Mickey captured it all. If there ever was a waterski ‘feel good’ video, this is probably it and we want to share it with you.

 

Enjoy the video and a big thumbs up to Mickey, Steve, and all our skiers that made 2018 so memorable.

We look forward to continue working with and for you in the new year!

Winter Fitness Training

With winter upon us, now is a good time to get serious about getting in shape for next season.

Working out with a personal trainer may produce better results than going to the gym by yourself. A good trainer should be able to give you exercises specific to your sport and help you stay motivated through the winter months.

slalom skierAs we all know, core training is beneficial to us water skiers, but often we tend to overlook our legs. Strong legs are essential to maintaining a quiet upper body and powerful position in the slalom course.

Make sure to use proper technique during your workouts to prevent injury; this is another reason why it might be beneficial to work with a coach. It’s also very important to work on flexibility with a good stretching program, and then exercise your muscles through their full range of motion. Just try to have a good time doing it!

Last but not least, planning a trip here to Florida’s Treasure Coast can break up the winter just enough to get you up to speed faster next spring. You’ll forget about all the hard work you put in when you’re ripping it up and running your personal best next season.

Wonderful ski weather continues!

Father and son Bud and Buddy Howard from Jupiter, Florida took advantage of the warm temperatures and great conditions to learn some new skills on the water.

Bud completed a full pass in the slalom course for the first time! Buddy got up on one ski, crossed the wakes and made the turn at the end of the lake.
