It's Time For Lake Race!

This time next week, the Lake area will be filled with powerboats ready to hit the water. Lake Race is one of the area's most exciting, loud and fastest events, and one that we look forward to every year. This event is a fan favorite for both locals and visitors alike, and for good reason! It's packed full of exciting events and is a great chance to enjoy a day out on the Lake watching fast boats with friends and family. Surdyke Yamaha is proud to be a sponsor for this year's event, and we 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!

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.
