I highly recommend Stew and Sam as wakeboard coaches and people to spend time with. I have been to Chain of Wakes for more than 10 times and every visit was very helpful. They are definitely the best to learn from.

I have been to Chain of Wakes a number of times with my latest trip in April/May. The wakeboard coaching is second to none and my wakeboarding has really come on. Stew and Sam really work to understand how you learn and tailor their coaching to suit. If you want a break from boarding, the boat can throw out a... More

We have visited Stewart Mackie at Coawakes twice recently, for a week in November 2015, and again in February this year. I can honestly say that is the best venue we have ever been to for riding/wakeboard coaching. Stew always makes learning fun at all levels from beginners to pro riders. With one of the biggest wakes around, for learning... More

Stew and Sam are both brilliant coaches who really make you feel safe, comfortable and who have great teaching techniques, and on top of it all always make you laugh! Winter Haven is an amazing place to ride and the chain of lakes ensures that there is always a calm spot. I would highly recommend Chain of Wakes to anyone... More

I have been to Chain of Wakes quite a few times now as well as other wakeboard camps around Europe and the US. When it comes to coaching, there is nothing else out there that compares! The school is based on a chain of lakes and so when it (rarely) got choppy or we fancied a change of scenery from... More

Stew will teach you awesome skills and spirit. Sam will share his masters technique and experience. Daisy, the dog, will give you so much love and support that you will start feeling home. Best time and money investment I have ever made in my life.

Amazing place to go wakeboarding in Florida. It is on the Chain so you can always find a good spot to ride and the coaching is second to none from Stew and Sam. I will be coming back again soon.
