Enjoy Fun Winter Activities With Surdyke!

Summer at the Lake of the Ozarks is an exciting time that's filled with fun activities and events. If you live at the Lake of the Ozarks year-round, you may think there isn't anything to do during the winter months. However, there are some great winter activities to enjoy! Here are some of our favorite things to do when it gets cold outside. 

Winter Fishing

If you couldn't bear to put your boat away for the whole season, winter fishing can help you get back out on the water. According to some experts, winter fishing at the Lake of the Ozarks can be just as successful, if not more, than fishing during the summer months. This is especially true if you find a warm day where they are active and feeding. Don't let the cold weather keep you from getting out and enjoying a day out on the water.

Dirt Bike & ATV Rides

This winter has been usually warm, and when there is a surprisingly warm day, go out and enjoy it on your dirt bike or ATV. Or you can layer up and get outside despite the cold. If you are going to be racing this summer, use this time to start memorizing the tracks so you're prepared for the season. In addition to riding, there are races that happen throughout the winter months where you can fill until the summer riding season begins. 

Go For A Ride

Although it can be chilly throughout February and March, there are still some beautiful days ahead of us. If you want to ride during some of the colder days, get out your leather, bundle up and hit the road! You can also take this time to ensure your bike is ready for spring by cleaning it up and making sure everything is in working order (and maybe take it for a spin if it gets nice enough). 

Plan Your Summer With Surdyke!

If the weather isn't cooperating with your outside activities, you can always come spend time in out showroom. We'd love to help you pick the perfect boat or bike that would be perfect for your lifestyle, and make your adventures even more fun! We're open 24/7 online at www.SurdykeYamaha.com, so even if you can't make it in our store, you can still visit us there!

Reasons You Should Go To A Boat Show

It's boat show season! There are several shows coming up in the next few weeks, and Surdyke Yamaha wants to invite you to join us in attending some of these shows. There are many different reasons to attend these boat shows from learning about the year's new boats to the fun activities the whole family can enjoy. The best Yamaha dealership at the Lake of the Ozarks offers a few reasons why you should go to a boat show.

Overland Park Boat Show Website
Research Your Perfect Boat

Boat shows are the perfect time to learn about all the different boats available. There are many different types of boats available from fishing pontoons to wake boats, and boat shows are the perfect place to get your information on which one will be best for your family. Although boat shows showcase boat manufacturers and dealers, there are other vendors there as well, such as docks & lifts, mortgage lenders, insurance agents and more, so you can learn about everything you need to know about owning a boat. 

Get Your Summer Accessories

As mentioned earlier, boat shows have so much more than just boats. There are a wide arrange of vendors who come out to boat shows. In addition to boats, many of the vendors also have accessories for your boat such as tubes, life jackets, water mats and more. You can find everything you need for a fun summer at the Lake of the Ozarks at a boat show! In addition to boats and accessories, there are many lodges and resorts at boat shows, so you can even plan your summer vacation at a boat show! 

Kansas City Boat & Sportshow
Fun For The Whole Family

Many boat shows are great for the whole family and even include activities for kids! At the Kansas City Boat & Sportshow (Jan. 19-22) there's free fishing for kids and they can join Captain Tim and his crew of pirate scallywags for a "high seas adventure," which includes climbing aboard a pirate ship, sing pirate sea shanties and skirmish with swords. Kids who attend the St. Louis Boat Show (Jan. 26-29) can test their marksmanship on a BB Gun Range or try archery at a 3-D Archery Range. 

A Chance To Get Out Of Town

While there are a few boat shows that happen at the Lake of the Ozarks, such as the Spring In-Water Boat Show (April 21-23), many of the boat shows are out of town. Attending these boat shows are a great way to get out of town for a mini-vacation, and possibly visit places that you wouldn't have before. 

While we love boating season, we also love boat show season, and we hope to see you at a few of these shows. If you find your dream Yamaha boat at one of these shows, just remember when it's time to purchase, come to Lake of the Ozarks best Yamaha dealership! Surdyke Yamaha is the best place to get everything you need for summer fun at the Lake of the Ozarks. We can't wait to help you get everything you need for summer.
