On May 13th, Sun & Ski Sports descended on to Indian Lodge Resort in Kopperl Texas for the 4th Annual On-Water Demo. The on-water demo is designed to give our employees an in-depth understanding of all watersports so that they can better serve our customers giving them the greatest support and knowledge when shopping at our stores for that new wakeboard, slalom ski, or wake surfer. No matter where you shop, Nashville, Houston, Tulsa, Dallas, Cincinatti, etc., Sun & Ski Sports is committed to bring the best staff possible and training them to be exceptional.
Employees from every store came to spend 2 days on the water, behind a boat, to experience and feel the difference between every board so that they can better serve you, our customer, in your next watersports purchase. Our employees will provide knowledge and experience so that you will have confidence in your purchase. Whether you are purchasing your first wakeboard or it is just time to upgrade, Sun & Ski Sports has the gear that you need to make this summer one to remember.
This year, the on-water demo came to the Brazos River just outside of the Dallas-Forth Worth Metro. The Brazos River offers miles and miles of glassy calm water, even when it is unseasonable dry like this year. We stayed right on the river at Indian Lodge Resort where Tim and Barb Jones give new meaning to word host. They graciously let us use their oven when we ran out of oven space, they looked after all of the gear that littered their pavilion, and they even came and hung out during clinics and down time. Our group took up about 10 of the 14 cabins there, we were basically the only ones around for this early-season mid-week, but everyone enjoyed having a cabin/roof over their head compared to the state park camping from previous years. There is a pool, basketball hoop, fishing, and pavilion to enjoy while at Indian Lodge, add Mike Holmes’ inflatable screen and projector and you have a fantastic mid-week (or weekend getaway). Indian Lodge Resort is just over an hour from DFW, 2 hours from Austin, 3 from San Antonio, and a doable 4 hours from Houston or Oklahoma City…all perfect for that weekend wakeboard getaway.
Special thanks to Indian Lodge Resort, Hyperlite, Liquid Force, Byerly Board Co., H.O. Sports, Wakeboard Coalition, Sasser Wakeboard School, Jet Pilot, O’Neill, Helium, Straight Line, and Accurate for making this event spectacular.
