“In Central Washington State there is a lake that you should check out. Stella Blue Lake, located 23 miles north of Pasco, is available for destination skiers to fly in or drive, stay for a few nights, and practice their slalom sets on tournament pristine waters. Rick Kearns purchased the lake from Dennis Koreis in 2018 and is offering up mid-week packages that include transportation to and from the airport, accommodations, boat, driver, and almost guaranteed sun. The lake was dug in 1984 and is one of the oldest in the state and country. The poplar trees provide a solid wind break and the house, patio, dock, and hot tub all offer great vantage points to watch your friends and family work on their personal bests.
Located next to Tate Lake and 3 hours from Seattle, Stella Blue Lake attracts visitors from the ski community like Jill Knutson. Jill says that "Stella Blue is my favorite retreat! I go there to get away with my family and friends in order to bring back the joy that I have in water skiing. I can honestly say that it feels like skiing on "magic water" because I have had two of my personal records on Stella Blue! The weather is always warmer than where I train, the water feels slow, I am provided a good trusted boat driver, I stay in a gorgeous house with comfortable beds with a beautiful view of the entire lake when you wake up, along with every amenity I could ever want or need to enjoy being on and off the water!"
With direct flights from Minneapolis, Denver, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle to Pasco, Stella Blue Lake is only a few hours away and can be all yours….for four days. www.stellabluelake.com”
Those first few sets of the year are fun, terrifying and exciting - listen as Rossi and Trent talk about starting your season on the right foot.
Benny Stadlbaur, who just tied teammate Nick Adams for 4th at the Moomba Masters in Australia, is one of a kind. He's funny, sometimes loud, and very analytical, yet when its all on the line, he can charge just as hard as anyone else in the world. This is yet another conversation between MB and a Syndicate team member, from the Syndicate testing summit at The Ridge in California last September.

SEATTLE—Jan. 24, 2020 – Basta Boatlifts will unveil three new products at the 2020 Seattle Boat Show. New products include:
5,000 lb. Capacity Galvanized Steel Boat Lift
The versatile 5k Series has two sizes. The shorter version is designed for shallow water locations like man-made waterski lakes and natural prairie lakes. The taller version is a robust choice for rough water conditions and deeper water installations. Optional longer legs and deep water sway & brace kits allow for installations up to 19 ½ feet of water depth.
Basta Quick Clamp Wheel Kit
The patent pending Basta Quick Clamp Wheel Kit makes installation, removal and repositioning of boat lifts easier than ever before. The kit attaches to the boat lift with a screw activated clamp, making it possible to attach it without putting your face in the water.
The kit is attached on each side of the boat lift, using a standard ½” drive ratchet or a battery powered drill. It has a dual-sided handle making it easy to maneuver into place. The adjustable column provides up to a total of 26” lift making it easier to reach deeper water locations. Unlike other wheel kits, it is an easy on/off and fits many different brand boat lifts giving the operator the ability to perform more installations/removals in a day. The kit has a 1,200 lb. capacity.
Exclusive Basta Rubber Bunks
Designed and engineered by Basta Boatlifts, the EPDM patent pending Basta Rubber Bunks feature a taller profile than the competition with greater cushioning properties, accommodating unique hull designs and strake patterns.
“I am excited about these new additions to our product line. We have listened to the needs of our customers and I think they are going to love them! The 5k Series is super rugged and incredibly versatile. It’s great for shallow water lakes and sturdy enough for rough and deep water. For those whose Spring and Fall fun include moving their boat lift, the Quick Clamp Wheel Kit is quicker and easier than any boat lift wheel kit on the market. People, and hulls, are going to love our supportive new rubber bunks, you’ve just got to see them.” remarked Basta Boatlifts’ owner Bryce Hansen.
