What is Lake Patriot?
Sometimes people ask about the meaning of our lake apparel brand, Lake Patriot. We believe those who love the lake and lake lifestyle are lake patriots. A lake patriot loves lake adventure, whether it is swimming in freshwater, camping near a lake, boating with friends and making memories, rope swinging, tubing, wakeboarding, paddleboarding, canoeing, fishing, or water skiing. The lake patriot also values the anxiety-reducing and mental healing effects of being in and around freshwater.
Many lake patriots love to relax on the beach, tan, drink, and chill. Some are boaters and recreational water sports fans of jet skiing. Others enjoy wakeboarding, waterskiing, and swimming or tie-up with other boaters and party at their favorite lake coves. Some like to canoe, kayak and paddleboard. If you love lake adventure or have a fond memory of being in and around a lake, you are a lake patriot.
The outdoors brings us together and is a powerful tool for health, wellness, social stimulation, rest, and recreation. The lakes offer enhanced fun and relevant stimulation that increases time and distance from the hectic daily work and other stress-related issues.
