During the 1970s and 1980s, David and Pat Enloe introduced Highland Lakes youth to the excitement of waterskiing. In 1980, the couple formed the Enloe's Outlaws Ski Team, which featured many of the youth. The team was among the highlights of the Kingsland Aqua Boom with a ski show that included a ramp, a water ballet, Russian roulettes, pyramids and lots of other high-skilled stunts.
