Our Story

It all started with a Dream

Welcome to H2O School, where wakesurfing isn't just a sport—it's our passion and driving force. Founded by Coach Caro in 2011, our journey began when she, a wakesurfing and wakeboarding competitor from Quebec, recognized the need for more opportunities in watersports upon moving to the Elk Valley.


With determination, Caro launched H2O School (originally located at Sunshine Houseboats & Marina) to offer wakesurf lessons and kids camps. At the time, she was also spreading the love for the sport by travelling the world to judge, coach and compete in over 8 different countries.

Diving into Adventure

Since then, our commitment to wakesurfing has grown alongside our reputation for excellence in business, education, training, judging, safe boat practices, and competitive wakesurfing.


Over the years, H2O School has taught thousands of people how to wakesurf and how to confidently operate their boat. We also introduced the first ever Canadian event to the World Series of Wakesurfing on Lake Koocanusa, back in 2012. Since then, the sport has been growing exponentially; and since H2O School's beginning, seven new wakeschools emerged from Caro's previous students. 

In 2021, we seized an exciting opportunity to relocate to Koocanusa Campsite & Marina, expanding our presence. We have been extremely pleased to be able operate from such a beautiful location.


This year, we're thrilled to announce our second location in Koocanusa South and welcome Coach Chris to our team, enhancing our ability to serve the East Kootenay community.​
