Watersports Contest

Lake of the Sky Watersports Classic – Video Contest

The Homewood High & Dry Marina, in conjunction with Ingenity ElectricSuperior Boat Sales & Repair are thrilled to host the 2nd annual Lake of the Sky Watersports Classic – Video Contest! This year we’re including ALL watersports – waterski, barefoot, tubing, paddleboarding, kayaking — show us your favorite way to play on Lake Tahoe!

Submit a 1 to 3 minute video of you, your family and friends participating in your favorite watersports on Tahoe, highlighting the story behind a day on the lake in the Sierra Nevada mountains, for your chance to win over $2,000 in prizes.

Prize packages will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and winners will be determined by a panel of judges. We also have a $200 gas card to give away to the video with the most public votes!

We know that not everyone has a drone or a top-of-the-line watersports boat, so this video contest is based on the story you can tell, showcasing the lake we all love, with the equipment you have.

Videos can be captured on any boat, and may feature any watersports that involve a towboat, BUT all video submissions must feature Lake Tahoe.

So what are you waiting for?! Get out on the boat and start filming!
