Off The Grid is fun for all ages and experience levels. Based on Okanagan lake, we offer wakesurf lessons, wakeboard lessons, boat rentals (including equipment and captain) as well as great custom rental packages. All of our drivers and coaches learn from world wakesurf competitor Bryce Wagner. Our coaches are always fun and the best part is they know how to get even the most uncoordinated person up surfing and having a blast. Everyone that comes out with us tells us that boating with us is the highlight of their vacation. We get you off the shores and onto the lake. Bring a big group of your friends or family, load up the boat and have someone take care of all the details for you. With a group on the boat a full day of entertainment is less per person then zip lining, wine tours, skiing, and other popular Okanagan activities. We are the best way to experience the Okanagan.
