It's Time to Race the Lake!

Every year one of the most exciting, loud and adventure packed events hits the Lake, and we look forward to it every single time. The Lake Race is always a fan favorite for the locals and vacationers alike, for a good reason! It's a wonderful chance to get out on the water with friends, watch fun boats speed down the channel, and meet some really cool people. Surdyke Yamaha is proud to be a sponsor for this event, and want to make sure that our favorite customers don't miss out on a single ounce of fun. Here is the schedule of events for the weekend!

Lake of the Ozarks Events

We love any event that gets people out on their Lake of the Ozarks boats, ATVs or street bikes. Surdyke Yamaha has been providing the best boats at the Lake of the Ozarks for over 40 years, and we're proud to continue doing so for years to come. We love to get involved in local events, and the Lake Race is certainly one to get out and enjoy. If you want a good excuse to get your family out on the water, this event is certainly the way to do it! If you still don't own a boat, and you're ready to take the plunge, come visit our showroom while you're out and about. We'd love to show you the boat of your dreams.
