Inaugural “Get Wet for a Vet” Event!
Nominate your friends for a chance to surf with the Pro's!
There's nothing in this country more faithful and true, than the men and women who fight to protect the red, white and blue...
We would like to show our gratitude by inviting our military veterans out for a day on the lake to celebrate you and your service.
Please join us on Veteran's Day, Saturday, November 11th for a day of cruising, surfing, and celebration.
Our day will start at 10:00 am under the 360 Bridge in the grassy area by the tables. We’ll have a greeting by event host Caballero Media and summary on the day.
Breakfast tacos and drinks will be served before we head out for the day. After, Veterans and their families will be able to pick which boat they would like to go out on first.
We’ll have two 2-hour surf sessions; after the first session the wake boats will dock to a party barge provided by Kon Tiki Fun Boat to allow Veterans to switch boats or take a break and enjoy provided refreshments.
After the two 2-hour session we will have a provided bbq lunch for all.
Not only do we hope to give our Veterans a fun day on the water to honor them, but we aim to raise money for an Austin based non-profit that benefits Veterans as well.
All proceeds will benefit Train Our Troops: http://trainourtroops.org/
“The vision of TrainOurTroops is to provide each U.S. veteran, and their spouse, with skill sets that will enable them competitive advantages in the crowded marketplace, whether they want to start a brand new career, or simply add additional skill sets to their existing resume of experience to make themselves more valuable.”

Team Brigade Wakesurfing will be with us providing wakesurf boards and lessons, along with SurfFIT Austin and local surfing pros, to teach those of you who'd like your try at it.
Mighty Swell will be providing the refreshments on the party barge for all 21 and up to enjoy.
We look forward to saluting YOU!
God Bless America
