Stopped by to see the Texas Waksesurfing Championships. Well maintained location, mainly for wake boarding, so you can't rent wake surf boards and you have to take lessons??? but beside you get everything what you need for a day of watersports.

In San Antonio for business, hit this on way to Austin. Staff were awesome, helpful, chill. My dock start was rusty after not being on cable for 4 years but handle dude was cool. Thought goats were fake at first until they moved. Gnar. Live goats while you're zooming around. OWC will never have goats-ever. Not going back to Texas... More

My son and husband took the challenge and tried out the wake boarding. They were beginners and were given the basic how to's and were sent out to the small pond for practice. When they mastered standing up, the graduated to the big lake. We paid for two hours and they were definitely worn out when their time was up.... More

Hi Chrissear, So glad your husband and son decided to learn how to wakeboard! So sorry about the hard falls, our advice would be to spend a little more time on the beginner cable... not to be in such a hurry to graduate. Learning a new sport takes time and two hours really isn't very long! That is why we... More

Great for kids and big kids of all ages. If you're riding the cables, the prices are much better during their "early bird" from 9-12am.

The ski ranch is a tow-line type kneeboarding park with a restaurant called "Wahoo's". The bar overlooks the lake and serves cold beer and excellent fish tacos.

I have been to TSR twice in the last two weeks and it has always been a lot of fun. The early-bird special allows you to wakeboard for 3 hours for just 24$ rentals included! The guys running the cables are all really nice and helpful and for my level the rails and jumps are more than enough to challenge... More

We wakeboard, ski and kneeboard, so we tried the TSR while in the area. The morning deal was very good and the staff was nice. The equipment wasn't the greatest and we were definitely disappointed that the kneeboard didn't have straps, so we had to buy one for the experience of jumping.
