Today a buddy and I went to the Texas Ski Ranch to take a two hour lesson. This was one of the best wakeboarding experiences I have ever had. The best part about the day is that our instructor was Gabe Lucas. This guy is an very gifted instructor. I can not say enough good things about the guy. He was very patient with us and explained every aspect of the tricks we were working on. The thing I found most intriquing about Gabe is that he seriously loves teaching people to wakeboard. Everytime one of us would land a trick that he was instructing us on, he would stand up and yell "alright," or "right on," and you could tell that it was sincere. He was truly happy for us.
The day ended with Gabe giving us a free show. We got to sit in the X9 and watch him throw up some of the sickest moves in wakeboarding. The guy is truly amazing and I wish him the best of luck this year on tour.
If your ever looking to take a lesson at the ranch I would recommend you ask for Gabe, he is outstanding.
