How did it come together?
Michael, Henrik, Kim and Juan are all members of the Greater Miami Ski Club, and it all snowballed from there. Mike, Henrik and Kim have been skiing since they were kids, and Juan picked up wakeboarding about 15 years ago. What's cool is that all the owners are riders. Mike wakeskates, wakesurfs and wakeboards. Juan skates and surfs, and Kim and Henrik were competitive skiers for many years. Before we started building the cable, Aktion Parks and Correct Craft came in and partnered up with the original owners. And fun fact: Henrik from Miami Nautique discussed the merger with Bill Yeargin, CEO of Correct Craft, on a plane ride together.
