Our Mission

The Watersports branch of CORE is back and ready to rock your world! We are here to provide you with a quality experience on the water for a price that students can afford. If you've never ridden before, we would be thrilled to show you the ropes.  If you're an experienced rider who just needs to get out on the water, we're happy to pull you over and over again until you nail that big trick. Either way, all the necessary equipment will be provided for you!
