Grant moved up to the Main Cable today and is working on his turns, where is has really excelled is on the Burton snow hill. We are all impressed with his snowboarding skills!
Brandi and Ray are practicing rallys on the 2.0 Cable System, most attempts looked like cannon balls but they were definitely having fun! Mari learned how to snowboard and wakeboard for the first time and has improved very quickly overthe week. Cody seems to like the big cable and boat time most, and wants to wakeboard ALL the time, we can’t get him off the lake! Matt also loves to wakeboard, he would spend the entire day on the water if he could.
Hunter made it all the way around the main cable today! He took his fins off and has practiced board control without them in case he decides to try the fun box. Roy was a pro at the 2.0, working on surface tricks and ollies. He is so much fun to watch! Aden is become super skilled on the main cable. He can make it all the way around without any problems and has made it up to five laps in a row! Gerardo is the wake master. He’s been practicing going in and out of the wake and is even catching a little air.
Blayne has put his mind to learning a tantrum this week and has already achieved it, stomping several by Tuesday. Bryson quickly landed 360s on the funbox and is now trying 540s. He has even landed a 360 off the kicker! Tyler has learned to wakeboard and
wakeskate on the Little Bro, and will hopefully take them both to the main cable by the week’s end. Alexis quickly mastered the Little Bro and has moved on to the Main Cable. He is working on mastering the corners but we know he will have it by the end of the week. Martin has been working on hitting the kicker and is landing tricks over the fun box!
For Sessions One through Five. It’s about dang time. We know. Please enjoy!
Hello parents! This has been one awesome week at Camp TSR! Our campers aren’t afraid of a little rain and neither are we! We have gotten tons of water time in, even when a little water is falling from the sky. The only time we have had to call things in is during thunder and lightening but luckily those storms have passed pretty quickly.
A few quick updates on each of the overnight campers:
Kayllie has the Little Bro cable on lock and has worked her way up to the main cable. The only challenge is the pesky turns but we know she’ll have it down by the end of the week. Rodrigo & Jesus are attached at the hip and love ping pong, paddleboarding, soccer, dodgeball, and wakeboarding. They are quite the pair and are having a blast rain or shine. They both even learned to ride switch together. Kobe is working on his wakeskating skills and has spent a ton of time on the System 2.0. Ty has taken a liking to wakeskating too and made it three laps in a row around the main cable!
Joseph has really impressed us this week with his willingness to take on everything. He challenged himself on the main lake riding on a wakeboard and a wakeskate. He had no prior wakeboarding experience so this quite the accomplishment. George is equally impressive doing lap after lap on the main cable. This kid NEVER gets tired! Zac stands out from the crowd with his surfing skills. He has made laps around the main cable on the wakeboard but has really shown off his skills on Malibu’s SURF GATE behind the boat!
Harper, Cayden, Landon, and Mallory are all making it down and back on the lil’ bro! Mallory is learning more & more about board control, and is working on pressing through rollers behind the boat. Landon shows off his wake skills by riding with only one hand every time he gets up. Cayden is working up the nerve to go behind the boat himself, but in the meantime is becoming a pro at standing up behind the platform with coach Kasie. Harper impressed us by taking the fins off her board and learned to go back and forth within the Malibu wake!

Session five has been AWESOME so far. Campers have spent a ton of time on the lakes, competed in a dodgeball tournament at Spring Loaded, gone tubing and snowboarding on the TSR Snow Park and so much more. Campers this week are learning fast and are really impressing the coaching staff here at camp.
After learning 180s over the fun box on Sunday, Zoe took it to 360 on Monday and is hoping to land and perfect 360s by the end of the week. Keith showed his snowboarding experience on the snow hill, leading the way as first to hit the kicker!! Dallas has already learned several new things, having got up wake boarding, skateboarding, and snowboarding and will hopefully excel at all 3 sports by the end of the week! Caitlyn is quickly picking up wake boarding and already making it up and down the little bro with ease. She also got up behind the boat the first day! Gerardo is already making it out on the big cable. Now he is working on tackling those turns!
! Eli has made it up and down the little bro a few times, already wake boarding farther than he ever has before! Stay tuned for more updates! Thank you parents for sharing your kids with us for such an awesome week!
Zoe, Maddie, and Keithan learned to wake skate on the 2.0 and are killing it. Reese is our rockclimbing champ. She climbed and climbed and is so close to making it to the top. She was super excited and we were all so happy for her. Mason was a little tired today, but once he got on the boat he rode like a pro and was so pumped and excited to be getting the hang of things. He loved it!
Bailey got up on the big cable and made it all the way to the first turn! We know she will have it down by then end of the week. Erin is queen of lil bro! She gets up and shreds all the way across and back! Blake is doing awesome on the wake skate, he is shredding it on both the big and lil bro! Will and Victor are absolutely awesome! They both are doing gnarly tricks off the kicker and they aren’t afraid to try new things on the wakeboard.
Caleb is super positive, always ready to lend a hand and rides the big bro like a champ. We’ve decided that our friend Eddie has a serious smores addiction. He has seriously perfected the art of roasting marshmallows. Jackson has made some serious contributions to the group. His campfire building knowledge came in handy during last nights roast. Mason/Cole took on the older kids at dodge ball and won, he has an accurate and strong arm. He is also getting better and better at the lil bro. Garrett is working hard on his wake skate tricks and landed a shove it on 2.0!!!!
Team Too Cool are doing well do, they have just been so busy being so cool that their counselor hasn’t had a chance to update us all on the day!
Check out our photo bucket account for this weeks photos. More to be posted soon!
Until we get our website fixed please view photos on our photobucket account!
Session two has gotten off to an awesome start! Campers have formed into four groups:
Team Gnarly – Because they are so chill. We don’t get it either.
The Wake Avengers
The Wake Slayers
Team ‘Too Cool’ – to come up with a name…..
“Team Gnarly” Update! Bailey, Erin, Victor, Will and Blake: Monday, almost everyone face planted on the cable, but had a blast doing it. We all know that taking a few fall is just part of the learning process. During ride breaks the crew played eking of the hill on the newly installed inflatables. We know this will be a fan favorite all Summer long. By Tuesday, EVERYONE got up on the main cable or little bro and we are so proud. A few even started going off kickers and tried edging hard for new tricks. Bailey and Erin both got across the little bro and showed off a little with one handed shredding. Blake is determined to get wake skating down, Victor knows he will have a Tantrum by the end of the week, and Will is out there shredding it every single chance he gets.
The “Wake Avengers” are also off to an impressive start. Zoe overcame her fear of skateboarding her first day and now loves it. We are so proud. Mason was the dodge ball king and lead the team in last night’s tournament. He jumped, dodged, ducked and dived to miss each ball. Maddie has seriously progressed her wakeboarding skills. She has been riding smoothly on the 2.0 and is learning to perfect her big cable riding. Keithan is our one and only day camper for the week and we are so excited to have him. He is champion of king of the hill and the water slide. He stood on the water trampoline and practiced keeping his balance while other kids jumped with him. He also has some impressive boat skills for such a little guy. Reese is still devotedly learning how to cable ride. She is determined to learn and is quickly getting better. We can’t wait to see where she will be at the end of the week.
Team “Too Cool’ is also having a rad week (despite the fact that they have refused to create a team name) Right from the start everyone was keen to get involved in all the activities; everyone jumped right onto their skate boards at the park and almost everyone is rolling in on the ramps, with a couple of campers sure to get it by the end of the week. Star has been shredding, learning raleys on the 2.0 and hitting several structures on the big bro. Morgan has started hitting the fun box on the back side of the lake and is sure to hit the wedge soon. Makenzie got up first time on the boat and quickly moved from the little bro to the big bro. Kaitlyn has been hitting the fun box and is sizing up the kickers, and Jacob is hitting most of the heal side structures. Hunter has mastered the little bro and is having progress behind the boat and on the big bro.
Last but certainly NOT least: the “Wake Slayers!” Caleb didn’t want wakeboard any this week, but his counselor said if he trys he will then do it with him. He loves wakeboarding now! Garrette is the camp directors awesome assistant. He has been his right hand man for every task. He has tried just about everything and as a veteran at camp, has been an awesome leader to the other campers. Mason S tried to tell us he was quiet and didn’t liek to talk much on the first day. He didn’t have us fooled, he is now mister socialite and has become friends with campers and counselors alike! He is also making serious improvements out on the lake. Eddie is a dodgeball king. Nicknamed Elvis and “The ladies man” he’s the most energized camper at every activity! Jackson has learned to ollie and look like a professional on the snowboarding hill. He even did some amazing tricks on the ramp.
Great week! We will post an update soon with all campers that have chose to compete in tomorrow night’s showdown!!! It starts at 5pm if parent’s want to come watch!
Hey Mom and Dad! So sorry, we are having a few issues with our photo uploader. We hope to have this issue fixed asap. Once we do photos from last week and this week will be up! Thank you for your patience.
