About

Skim across a private lake just north of Sacramento, CA on a hot summer day. This is a fun way to cool off and meet new friends! Beginner to advanced skiers, seated or standing, enjoy one-on-one instruction from experienced adaptive water ski instructors and trained volunteers. No prior experience is necessary.

This program is appropriate for anyone with a physical, sensory, cognitive, or developmental disability to experience the absolute thrill of water skiing. We utilize a private lake within Wake Island Waterpark that has warm water and easy access.

Join us for the most fun you will have all summer!
