3 hours
Includes drinks, equipment
Up to 5 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

First, I will make sure you know exactly how to get to the boat house and once you arrive, we will start with a review of boat safety and watersports equipment. I'll share my background and get an understanding of your current skill level and what you want to achieve during the experience (wakeboarding or wake surfing)

Once on the water, you will experience the Detroit River like the locals do. I will assess the weather and wind so we can find the best conditions to wakeboard in. I will act as a tour guide and can provide information and history on buildings and landmarks that can be seen from the water. Once in the best spot, I will get the equipment set up and help you get strapped in. Then, it is time to wakeboard or wake surf!

I will make sure everyone gets at least two full sets.

We will ride the waves and afterwards, enjoy the sunset while listening to your favorite beats as we cruise home.
Other things to note
This experience is for anyone! Young or old, big or small, beginners or experts. Come enjoy a great day on the water in beautiful boat.

Meet your host, Joseph

Host on Airbnb since 2014
  • Identity verified
I have over 15 years experience wakeboarding and boating on the Detroit River. I have participated in many wakeboarding competitions and can help you learn the basics, like learning to get up on a wakeboard or improve your existing skills, including spins and inverts. I love teaching others the skills I've learned throughout my life on the water. I have taught countless friends and family members these skills and know how to make the whole experience a memorable one.

Where you'll be

We will ride in my favorite spots along the Detroit River, depending on the wind conditions and boat traffic, so that we have the best water. These spots include the shores of the Wyandotte, Trenton, Grosse Ile and Fighting Island.
