Awakin

By |

Awakin your passion, purpose, and potential at this three day, Kirby’s School of Wake day camp! Awakin is designed to create an atmosphere for campers to grow their passion for wakeboarding/wakesurfing with top notch instruction, gain a greater understanding of their purpose with faith based messages and influences, and to seek their full potential.

Space is limited to twenty campers. First come, first serve. We accept campers aged 18 and under. Campers will be divided into four ride groups (based on ability level – click HERE to determine skill level) and each camper will receive five wakeboarding/wakesurfing lessons, lunch, and the opportunity to compete. Over the lunch break, campers will be allowed to swim, do a short team building exercise and hear a faith based message. Be ready to cheer on others learning in your ride group, because on the last afternoon of camp, ride groups will compete as a team in a personal best contest. Each camper will compete to achieve their personal best tricks. We will combine the scores of each ride group and the ride group scoring the highest will receive a prize.

We encourage campers to bring their own wakeboards/lifejackets; however, if you don’t have them, no problem! Simply let us know on the registration form and we will get you all taken care of. Also, as this is not an overnight camp, please let us know if you need help finding accommodations.

Wakeboarding Doesn’t Have to Hurt

By | Blog
In our world, we’re often told that by the time we’re forty or (fill in the blank) we are supposed to hang up many of the activities we participated in and enjoyed from our youth. We’re trained to believe that by that particular time of life, our bodies will hurt and ache and as a result, we will be sidelined from the things we once loved.

Hope Floats

By | Blog

In March 2015 I began dreaming up the possibility of having a winter wakeboarding school in Fort Myers, Florida. I clearly recall the day I first spotted the Caloosahatchee River. I was crossing the I-75 Bridge on my way to Revolution Cable Park and thought to myself, “Wow now THAT would be a great place to ride!” That exact moment catapulted me into drawing up plans to explore the area’s potential.

Welcome to Punta Cana!

By | Blog

Kirby and I have never found ourselves tracking a hurricane more closely than the week of October 2nd. We are used to the threat of tornadoes back home, but hurricanes…those are a whole new world. Fresh from Missouri, we sat out on our friend’s lanai in Orlando contemplating our options.  The Malibu Punta Cana Pro was the last professional competition of the year. It was scheduled for October 7-9 in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. The easy and “safe” thing seemed to be to cancel our flights, but wait, wait, wait…let’s rewind and start from the beginning to get you caught up. Read More

Burn Camp 2016: More Than Conquerors

By | Blog

This June, Kirby’s School of Wake had the special privilege to be a part of the Midwest Children’s Burn Camp. The camp is designed specifically for children who have suffered trauma from serious burn injuries. Serious burns are extremely painful and cause scaring of the skin. The need to feel accepted is a powerful thing, especially in today’s world. As these children recover from their injuries, Burn Camp provides them with an atmosphere of healing. Campers are able to make new friends that reserve judgment, have fun, and learn that they are not defined by the scarring on the outside, but rather who they are on the inside.
