Malibu Boats Partners with Texas Ski Ranch
NEW BRAUNFELS, TX – Malibu Boats, LLC announces a new partnership with Texas Ski Ranch, including on-site boat sales and service for Malibu and Axis Wake Research boats. Texas Malibu joins as the new dealership to provide retail boat sales and service for “TSR” and its customer base, filled with passionate watersports enthusiasts. In addition, Axis Wake has signed long time TSR athlete, Tom Fooshee as their newest pro rider. Tom will proudly be riding behind the 2014 Axis A22 Liquid Force Edition as soon as it is available.
TSR is known as one of the most iconic cable parks in the world and Jack Springer, CEO of Malibu Boats, is excited to announce this long-term agreement. “We feel that TSR is the best, most advanced cable venue in the nation and Texas Malibu (formerly CTWS) is a top dealer for us,” Springer said. “Combining the number one wake park venue with a top dealership and the far-and-away leader in towboat manufacturing, the benefits to the customers in the Central and South Texas corridor will be limitless. Not only will people be able to experience the best quality, most innovative and best performing boats, they will be able to experience SURF GATE firsthand, seven days a week, all year long.
Springer also commented on Malibu’s strategy, “The partnership with TSR is easy. We have the same values and commitment to customers. This is also a great example of Malibu’s proposition. We don’t want to build and run cable parks. We want to selectively partner with great owners/operators who are dedicated to building their cable venue and partnering with Malibu to create overwhelming value for customers.”
Paul Bialick, CEO of Texas Ski Ranch said, “Malibu is an innovative company and one that shares our vision. They understand the riders, the sport and most importantly they want to help us dream big and reach our goals.” Paul also added, “MasterCraft was a good partner. We will stand by our customers in servicing their boats and covering their warranties. We are grateful for the loyal customers who have become part of the TSR family over the past 11 years.”
A public grand opening will be held throughout the weekend of July 12-14, 2013 with a launch celebration on Saturday, July 13. Everyone is welcome to test drive new boats, experience Malibu’s SURF GATE technology, hang out at the beach party and win free prizes.
TSR will also give away year-long passes for the best photo submitted of a Malibu or Axis and also for the best photo taken at TSR. This Instagram contest can be entered through July 11 by tagging your image #TSRMalibu (not case sensitive).
Central Texas Water Sports (CTWS) and Texas Ski Ranch (TSR) are excited to announce a new partnership to form the largest exclusive inboard sales and service center in Texas, Texas Malibu. There are now two locations to serve customers with the largest Malibu inventory in the region. Rob Falgout, CEO of Texas Malibu said, “We are very excited to bring Malibu and Axis Wake boats to TSR. CTWS and TSR sold more towboats than anyone else in the region as competitors. The sky is the limit to what we can do as partners going forward under the Texas Malibu name.”
Tom Fooshee, Texas wakeboard icon and four-time Wake Park World Series champion also joins the Axis Wake pro team. “For three of the leading names in the industry to come together is really powerful,” Fooshee said. “And to be able to train behind an A22 Liquid Force Edition is almost too good to be true.”

Malibu is the number one watersports towboat, not only in Texas, but the U.S. and worldwide as well. Together, we will have a laser focus on continuing to keep Malibu as the dominant brand in Texas.
