Born on the South Side of Chicago, Illinois, Kenneth Howard Tellstrom experienced his first water skiing experience on Lake Michigan in the summer time at the tender age of 5 years old. He always remembers that time in the freezing and rough, choppy water. His parents bought a cottage in Indiana when Ken was 7 years old. His father bought a family ski boat where he started on Bass Lake, Indiana. Every weekend his father would take him out on the lake and have Ken practice until there was nothing left in him. Ken always excelled in sports. Wrestling and diving came natural to him leading him to win City and State Championships in both sports. At the age of 18, Ken packed his bags and made a drastic move to Southern California where he had a wrestling scholarship. He was quickly derailed by Huntington Beach where he started surfing which quickly led him to making it a career. After 7 years of surfing on the shores of California and Hawaii, Ken was missing his roots of being on the lake. He had heard about Shasta Lake, CA being the best lake in the entire Western States. He quickly packed his bags and made the move up to Redding, CA. When he started back, ‘Scurfing’, which is what Wakeboarding was called at the time, was THE sport of that time. With Ken’s background in diving in 1 meter, 3 meter and platform, his air awareness and 7 years of prior Surfing made him a natural. Falling in love with the sport, Ken started a Wakeboarding school called Extreme Wakeboarding in 1988 and he enjoyed 11 years of teaching families and kids on Shasta Lake. Ken ended his 11 years of Wakeboarding and schooling on top of the world. Bringing home World and National Champion Titles in his division in 1999. Ken feels extremely blessed to be living on his playground, Shasta Lake, currently running his vacation rental business and being a self employed contractor. He still teaches Wakeboarding upon special request as he will always love the sport and the ability to share his knowledge with others.
