Wes is confident, knowledgeable, patient, confident, humble, calm and fun. He has the right gear, and the experience to know how to use it; the perfect teacher for this first-timer. If you're like me and struggle with fear and lack of confidence when trying something new - give ADK Aquatics a try. Wes' empathy and "you can" attitude got me... More

Wes is great with adults and kids. Tubing, wake surfing, anything you want to do no the lake. He is a great driver, the boat is amazing and he patiently teaches kids and adults new sports, tricks, etc. He never makes you fell like he is watching the clock, just seems like you are on the water with a good...

What a fun time - every time we go! Wes and his team are engaging, knowledgable and worth every penny. The 2 times we have been out this year have been great. The boat is pristine and the equipment well fitted. Looking forward to heading out again before summer ends.

When we booked a vacation to Lake Placid we thought we would see a lot more of this lake. It turns out Lake Placid is tucked away and very private. Before arriving at ADK we saw it from a distance, atop Whiteface Mountain, but that was it. We reserved some time, with Wes from ADK, to get our three kids... More

The team at ADK Aquatics did an awesome job teaching my kids (10 and 11) for first time on wakeboard and water skis. They were very patient and their teaching techniques were very easy for young ones to pick up. They were also very knowledgeable about the area and very personable. Highly recommend - highlight of our trip.

Wes and Bobbo were extremely nice and wanted to make sure we had a great time on the lake. Very professional and safety always came first. Already recommended them to another group that same day. Looking forward to tubing with them next year!
