Todd and Laura Wilson both grew up in the North where they had three months in the summer to ski. Of course, when those three short months came around they hit the lakes hard! Laura started tournament skiing at the age of 12 and began show skiing professionally her junior year in high school. She later took it up as a full time job after graduating. Todd skied in amateur ski shows several nights a week in Tomahawk, WI before turning to professional show skiing in 1986. Todd and Laura have traveled the world show skiing from California to Germany, New York to Austria and several places in between.
After retiring from professional show skiing, a life long friend of the Wilsons talked them into settling down in Oklahoma. Since they met, Todd and Laura had wanted to start a boat dealership and Edmond, OK was the perfect place to do just that. Upon touring the various boat factories, the Wilsons fell in love with the Malibu line of boats and knew that Wilson Watersports would be the perfect home for Malibu Boats in Oklahoma. After great growth in the wakeboard market, it was decided that Axis Wake boats would be an excellent compliment to the Malibu Line. Wilson Watersports consists of Todd & Laura Wilson along with a knowledgeable sales & service staff. Sales Manager, Taylor Kress is well known and highly respected in the wakeboard world. Among many of his impressive awards are WWA National and World Men’s 1 Wakeboard Champion. Taylor’s knowledge of the towboat industry is arguably the best in the state. He loves to take customers out to share his enthusiasm of the boats and the industry he loves and knows so well. Todd Wilson has been a certified mechanic since 1988 and oversees all service work himself. As a young man he learned great mechanical skills from his dad. During his show skiing days at Sea World, Todd was also the lead mechanic and boat driver. When asked what their favorite thing about running the dealership was the Wilson’s replied, “We have the greatest customers, they are all good friends. We feel so proud each time we go to the lakes and see our customers out enjoying their boats.”
