Went out early in the morning for tubing and an introduction to waterskiing for the kids. Chris and Mason were great - very helpful and encouraging with the kids.

Great instruction, safe operation and lots of fun. Highly recommend Lakeside Watersports for wake boarding, water skiing or tubing on Candlewood Lake. Both Mike and Chris have a great rapport with kids.

This was our second annual day on the lake with Lakeside Watersports. Mike is at the top of his class when it comes to customer service, safety, and delivering a day of unstoppable fun! There's no better way to unplug everyone from the electronics! We will most definitely be back next summer.

Wakeboarding is amazing fun and these guys made everything easy. They gave great tips and helped us out when needed. Equipment and boat in great condition. We went out on Labor Day weekend, so the water was crowded and a littly choppy. Will definitely be back next year earlier in the summer.

One of the best experiencees I've had on a lake. I only had the pleasure to meet Chris, but that was all I needed to think that Lakeside Watersports is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I got up on my first try and Chris had me cutting in and out of the wake in no time. Thanks so much... More

Went out for a lesson on their last weekend, wish I had been going all summer. Can't wait until next year! Best teachers and so much fun, they got me up on a wakeboard on my first try. Had so much fun and so reasonable for a beginner.

This is a great activity to do on the lake. There are no other places on the lake that offer these activities, we went tubing and watersking. Very professional staff with top notch equipment. Loads of fun ,would highly recommend for a family day on the lake.
