Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Speechless Sunday - Lake Austin - Alyssa's First Wakeboard Attempt

Speechless Sunday - Lake Austin - Alyssa's First Wakeboard Attempt

Lake Austin is a "river" that runs through the heart of Austin TX, splitting the city in half, the Colorado River. It is fed from Lake Travis so it is a constant level lake, whereas Lake Travis is low because of the current drought.  That also makes Lake Austin's properties and land significantly more expensive than Lake Travis'.


It nice to go out on the boat and just look at the houses as we go by. Many boat docks for sale too. We saw one that had 3 slips, looked pretty run down, been on the market for a couple of years, and priced at a nice $725k. Yeah, ok (sarcasm).

Alyssa harris Wakeboarding Lake Austin tx


Alyssa has been out on the boat with us many times, but she usually just swims or sits on the tube. This time, I was SPEECHLESS!!  She actually attempted to wakeboard!


I didn't get a picture of the actual wakeboarding as I was driving the boat, and the camera wasn't cooperating, of course.  This picture is of Alyssa and her dad getting ready to go, and him giving her instructions on what was going to happen and what she should do.


She got up, and they went so much further than I expected. I thought she would last 5 seconds... instead, she went at least 45 seconds!! I was amazed and so proud!! She wants to go again.

Before you know it will be an every weekend affair, just like riding a bike at that age. Got to do it all the time...

Weekend? No, we like going during the week when it's less crowded.

Looks like a family day on the lake in Austin Texas.

Good luck and success.

I love to wakeboard myself and my eight year old twins & 6 year old all managed to knee board last year. I need to get the family back out on the lake this year before it is too late. Im with you on going out during the week when it is less busy with the family.
