The Van Asperens just loved wakeboarding so much, they packed up their family home and moved to one on a lake.
The shift from the dry land of Youngtown to the scenic Blackstone Heights that extends to the Lake Trevallyn backdrop had only amplified their frenziness more for the motorboat-powered sport.
"One day we thought we'd love to move closer to the Trevallyn Dam and when I was out with the kids, mum would come out from work and we'd go out afterwards," dad John Van Asperen said.
"So now we have found a property where we're right on the water. When the kids want to go to bed, they come up straight from the lake."
It was first boating before wakeboarding took over.
They socially met top state wakeboarder Sarah Wells, who one by one had not only converted the Van Asperens, but inspired the three sisters.

"They'll have the cover off the boat, have the gear ready to go when I get home and we go out at night," he said.
"It became such a passion over time that I started out a little charter business where we take other people out."
John, Jasmine, Esther and Charlotte all competed as a family for the first time at the opening round of the Tasmanian wakeboarding series.
The quartet all made it on the podium that included Esther edging out a younger Charlotte for the rookie title.
They will look to continue their recent form on home waters in the second round at Lake Trevallyn on Saturday.
The patriarch of the three daughters said there is stiff competition in the family.
"When we are all behind the boat together, they will soon tell you if your tricks are completely rubbish," he said.
