Lake Tahoe Adaptive Boat Day In partnership with Mobo Law, Palisades Development in Olympic Valley and Pacos!
8 High Fives Athletes arrived at the High and Dry Marina in Tahoe City for a day of boating on Lake Tahoe. Waiting for their arrival was 4 high-end surf and ski boats, generously donated for the day by some amazing Tahoe businesspeople.
After a quick introduction, safety brief, and High Five, the Athletes loaded boats, with adaptive water-skis and surfboards in tow.
Jason Abraham, or Abro as he is usually called, had a new toy he was eager to get out and try. Abro loaded his Bellyak, a forward-facing stomach kayak, into the boat and was quick to get into the water and try to find a way to “surf” a boat wake. Initially, he held onto the rope but had no luck getting into the pocket of the wave. After a quick re-evaluation, the rope was tied to the front of the board so Abro could use his arm to get balanced on the Bellyak. After a few, very close attempts, Abro got into the pocket and was finally able to wake surf! With a big smile on his face, Abro showed everyone involved the true meaning of the adaptive spirit.
I loved Adaptive Wake Surfing for the first time! Couldn't be more grateful for the kind humans of Mobo Law & The High Fives Foundation for making The Adaptive Boat Day happen!
