Avos News Letter 2012

Our round up of last years jet ski season at the leisure lakes, plus all the latest developments and events for this years season.  Read about our Jobe Fusion of Fun 2012 Day, the Freestyle National Tour will be back once again this year, plus all the other events that will be coming to Avos Liesure Lakes Jet Ski centre.

Well Boys and Girls it's that time of year again.

What a GREAT year we had last year down at the lake. The sun shone on us on many an occasion when it was pretty miserable weather down the road. The trips that we had out to Lancaster and the annual day out to Anglesey where also a great hit and fun was had by all. I was at my sisters wedding on the weekend of the Jobe Fusion of Fun day but from the pictures I saw and the amount of fuel receipts I had on my desk on my return I do believe it was a good day too. The FNT did their thing in August with some spectacular routines from our local boys.


If you did not know already then we have a fantastic group of jet skiiers interacting on FaceBook. “Avos Watersports Den” is what you need to search for and as an open group anybody can join.  This is where we announce all of our last minute jaunts and jolly's.  There is also a lot of friendly banta with free competitions and a gallery of the antics we all get up to on our waterborne adventures.  In addition to this we have set up a new website to compliment our already popular shop website the Jet Ski Lake site is more of an information site with a lot of new industry news from all the watercraft manufacturers and some land based activities to.  This is much less hard sell than the shop website, take a look and let us know what you think!

This year we are holding a round of the JSRA (Jet Sport Racing Association) on the 4th & 5th August, this one of the British Championship Jet Ski Racing rounds with the country’s best of the best going head to head to compete for the British Championship Title and a place in the European and world finals. This is going to be a spectacle not to be missed.  It will mean that the lake will be closed for the weekend as 80 to 120 of the country’s best charge around the lake at flat out speed.  This will be a massive event   and watching from the side lines will be a spectacle in its self.

Freestyle National Tour (FNT)

The Freestyle National Tour (FNT) will be visiting us again this year on the weekend of the 11th & 12st August.  This is also a spectacle not to be missed, with freestyle and slalom events and much much more.  Come down and join in or sit on the beach and enjoy the day watching some of the top UK freestylers in action!

Yet again another convoy of Skis down the A55 is a fantastic way to start a Friday morning on our Annual Anglesey outing!  The date was 7th of October, the Venue was Traeth Bychan Bay (the next beach up from Benllech Bay) and this all makes for a fantastic day out and yet again the sun shone on us.  There were several new faces with 27 skis on the water in total.  We had several trips out to the ships and back that were moored a few miles off shore in quite a rough sea.  This year’s trip will be on Friday 5th October meeting either at the lake at 8:30am and driving down in convoy or just hit Traeth Bychan Bay on Anglesey around 10:30am and we will see you there.

We had quite a few good days out to the sea last year and if you take a peek at the Diary Dates page you will see a few dates we have pencilled in for this year.  We will announce more on........... yes, you guessed it, on our FaceBook open group “Avos Watersports Den” as we get through the season.  Lancaster is one of the local haunts, launching on the river and heading out into Morecambe bay, so there's a little bit for everybody and a nice warm pub to grab a bite and drink to re-fuel afterwards. 

Jobe Sports Fusion Of Fun Tour

As the Jobe Sports “Fusion of Fun Tour” was such a big hit again, we will be having another one on Saturday 16th June, where Jordy from Jobe Sports Europe (one of Europe’s largest producers of Watersports Toys) will be bringing the Jobe inflatable toys for everyone to try, along with Wake Boards, Kneeboards and Water Skis.

As we are now into our 4th year as Yamaha WaveRunner Main Dealers and all has gone well with the Demo Weekends we had last year and the years before, we will be doing it all over again this year on  14th & 15th April and 12th & 13ndth May. This year brings the arrival of the NEW Yamaha FX HO & FX SHO.  These have the NEW longer hull, a dedicated Neutral gear with the 1800cc normally aspirated engine and the Super Charged model.  The VXR model will be on demo with us for the majority of this year along with the VX Deluxe.  So if you are thinking of an upgrade for this year then you can try before you buy and at the moment until the end of April you can take advantage of Yamaha’s low rate finance with a 20% deposit and rates of 1.99% over 2 years, 2.99% over 3 years and 3.99% flat rate over 4 years Terms & conditions apply.  So don't miss the first demo weekend if you are thinking of a new ski so you can take advantage of Yamaha's “No Excuses” finance campaign before it ends.

Any other events, days out, BBQ’s, etc that we will be having we will keep you informed throughout the season via FaceBook (so don't forget to look us up) and on the notice board in the shop.

The implementation of the Owner/Insurer having to be RYA PWC trained from the 1st April 2010 has made the lake a joy to be on and around.  We have a much nicer family based membership now having got rid of most of the idiots.  If you have not yet done your RYA course, then you are out of time, it needs to be booked before you continue to use the lake!   As craft become quicker and more responsive each year we are trying to make sure that our lake is still one of the safest in the country.  It will also entitle you to some discount off your annual insurance (and we all like to save money)!

Wakeboarding And Waterskiing

Have you ever tried Wakeboarding or Waterskiing? Well now you can! Every Wednesday when the lake closes at 3pm we get a Wakeboard boat onto the lake, we call it “BUY A TOW” basically you buy time behind the boat in 15 minute sessions or you can hire the boat for an hour and have the lake to yourselves.  We can also accommodate group bookings and birthday parties.

As always we ask for your help to improve your lake experience, this is your lake to enjoy, so if you see anybody being unsafe or not abiding by the lake rules then we ask you to please assist us by reporting these incidents.  As much as we do overlook the lake we can not always see everything that goes on.

I have enclosed a set of lake rules and a Yearly Lake Membership form for you to fill in and bring with you the first time you use the lake again on or after the 1st April 2011.  If you would like to renew a Yearly Membership then you can send payment before the 1st of April to secure your place for the 2012/13 season.  You will also need to bring your insurance details with you for us to update your file and your RYA certificate.

Jet Ski Lake WebCam

The WebCam has been working a treat, log onto our site and look at the tabs on the top of the page you will see WebCam.  This is updated every 30 seconds so you can have a look how busy or quiet the lake is and what the weather is doing down here in our own mini tropical oasis (haha).  Then there is no excuse for not playing for the day or using your ski

So here’s looking to a great 2012/13 Season.
