Hodag Water Shows (HWS) was organized and held its first show at Hodag Park on the shores of Boom Lake in 1971.  Since 1971 HWS has been entertaining visitors at free shows twice a week featuring some of the area’s top water skiers. Every Sunday and Wednesday at 7:00 pm from mid-June until late August, plus the 4th of July, HWS performs a show that features acts such as ballet, jump, swivel skiing, trick skiing, barefooting, doubles, trios, wakeboarding, and pyramid.  

 

Members range in age from 6 to almost 50 and some of the members have been with the team for more than 30 years.  Concessions such as hot dogs, walking tacos, nachos, cotton candy, chips, beverages and many other snacks are available at each show.

Gearing up for 2022

Hodag Water Shows is getting ready for the 2022 season, we are excited to announce that our first practice will be on Sunday, May 15, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at our ski show site at Hodag Park in Rhinelander. 

Practices in May will be dry-land practices and then we hope to be in the water in early June.

The first show of the season is tentatively set for Sunday, June 19 and shows in 2022 will be on Sunday evenings — don't worry, we'll also have our usual Fourth of July show this year again too!

The board has been meeting regularly setting things in motion and now we've started a campaign to recruit new ski team members — skiers and volunteers to help with practices and shows! 

If waterskiing or wakeboarding is something you might be interested in, no matter how old or young you are, feel free to reach out to us for this season! We're looking for youth, adults, boys, girls, whatever it might be! No one is too young or too old to start waterskiing. 

You can find more information about joining on our website at www.hodagwatershows.com, and our Facebook site or on Instagram. On our website, just click on the "JOIN" tab at the top of the website. 

You can also email us at hodagwatershowsinc@gmail.com and a board member will respond.

 

If you would like to donate to HWS, you can do that by using the "Donate" button at the top of this website. We are a 501c3, so you can use the donation as a tax write-off.

Lets get ready for summer 2022!
