Hear from Cal Wake Riders
“Our experience with Chad at CAL Wake has been one that I hope everyone gets to have. He has a gift for relaying the skills on a level that our six-year-old can interpret and work with. He’s been able to get on his level and such a motivating and suggestive way that has inspired the fun in Hudson‘s wake progression while he acquires new skill sets. He’s inspired a self-driven, low-pressure mindset for competition training. Hudson is in the hands of a trusting, laid-back, yet skilled coach and we couldn’t be more stoked for the relationship that has been created through his training and love for wakeboarding!”
“I love coming out and riding with Chad! The vibe is so sick when he is coaching! It’s always fun learning something with him out on the boat and I am always looking forward to riding with him!”
“I contacted Chad at Cal Wake for a company outing and found the whole experience super fun and easy. Chad took care of everything for us. I simply showed up at the dock with my entire team and we jumped in the boat and got going. Our group was full of beginners and everyone got up behind the boat. Such a blast and a fantastic team building experience.”
