COVID-19 and O’Brien: In the midst of everything going on, O’Brien Watersports is still up and running. As some of you know, our headquarters are based just outside of Seattle in Snoqualmie, WA and on March 23rd the governor mandated a stay-at-home order. Prior to the announcement, we made the necessary changes so that we are capable of working from home, which is what we’ll be doing until the situation improves. All of our daily operations are still functional with the exception of customer service being able to receive phone calls (if you leave a message, they will call you back). Alternatively, we recommend that you reach out to them via email at CustomerService@obrien.com for faster and more efficient assistance.
For anyone who has placed orders recently, there is no need to worry. We are still capable of processing and shipping orders from our warehouse in Texas and will continue to do so until further notice. As things change, we will do our best to keep you informed. Until then, stay safe and we can’t wait to see you back out on the water.
Release the skier if they fall, taking the pressure off the kid
Just like the All-Star Trainers, the Wake Star Trainers are really a teaching system, but in a more value-priced package. Constructed of eco-friendly Bamboo. When it’s time to teach the kids to ski, the Wake Star Trainers are a great training tool. These 46-inch skis come with a stabilizer/trainer bar that prevents the skis from doing the “splits” and keeps them level. They also come with two ropes as part of the package; short training rope with a handle that connects to the stabilizer/trainer bar at the front of the skis that the skier holds on to, and a longer rope with a handle to be held by an experienced observer in the boat. With this system, the observer can release the skier if they fall, taking the pressure off the kid. This system makes it incredibly easy to get them up and skiing. Supports a weight range up to 85 pounds with kid-sized adjustable bindings. The Wake Stars are the value-priced system for getting your kids into the wonderful world of waterskiing.
