There’s nothing in this country more faithful and true, than the men and women who fight to protect the red, white and blue. We would like to show our gratitude by inviting our military veterans out for a one of a kind weekend surf camp!
The Other 23 is proud to invite you to our second Get Wet With a Vet event in Austin, Texas on May 3th-7th, 2018! We will be teaming up with two amazing organizations, One More Wave and Wake for Warriors, to bring participants and coaches from all three US coastlines for a multi-day event.
We will all be staying together at a large lake front property in Steiner Ranch, Austin Texas with a private dock and plenty of space to sprawl out! Our weekend will consist of two awesome days of wake surfing on Lake Austin, Friday and Saturday May 4th and 5th, with a third final day May 6th, testing out our surf skills at NLand Surf Park.
For Friday and Saturday, The Nautique Boats team at Sail and Ski has graciously offered to provide professional drivers and demo Nautique G23 and G25 boats for us to enjoy, with coaching on hand provided by Wake for Warriors, SurfFIT Austin, and a few special guests! In addition to the wakesurfing boats on Saturday, we will also have jet surf board and SUP jetsurf demos by Jetsurf ATX coming out to party with us!
Surf equipment will be provided by Wake for Warriors, One More Wave, Brigade Wakesurfing, and TukTuk. These companies provide performance equipment and work with shapers who adapt their own surf and wakesurf equipment to allow those with disabilities to participate.
We will be wakesurfing from 9am-6pm both days, pausing around noon each day for a lunch from one of our sponsors! Lunch on Friday will be provided by Lake Travis Plumbing competition BBQ team. Saturdays lunch will be provided by local favorite Sundancer Grill, then a home cooked family meal provided by PHIT Austin after a long day on the lake!
For our finale on Sunday, we will be taking everyone to test out their skills on the “ocean” waves of NLand surf park! Here the team from One More Wave, and some NLand coaches who have donated their time, will help everyone understand the difference in techniques when shredding an ocean wave versus the boat wake wave.
We are so excited to bring together such a wonderful team and offer this one of a kind experience to our much deserving veterans! No other surf camp in the US can offer what we do, and we can’t wait to have you involved!
