Chad Hudgins & Family
Chad Hudgins has had a passion for jet skis for many years. At a young age, Chad remembers going to his grandparent’s lake house and wanting to ride a jet ski. Waving down passing riders, he could not wait to ride himself. As Chad got older his passion did not die down. In 1994, he started to race jet skis (SeaDoo HX). During this time, he gained valuable personal watercraft high performance and modification experience. Chad was named the 1998 Southeastern Division Champion and went on to race in the world finals at Lake Havasu City, Arizona.
Chad soon realized that if he was going to race, he needed to know how to work on his machine. In 1998, Chad also attended the American Marine Institute (AMI) in Daytona Beach Florida to become a certified marine technician.
After completing AMI, he started repairing jet skis in the area. Word spread fast about this young guy repairing jet skis in a home garage. He continued to repair personal watercraft on the side while attending Georgia College and State University. Upon graduation with a Business Administration degree, he opened TCH WaterSports Inc. on Pea Ridge Rd in Eatonton Ga. This has been a dream come true for Chad and a career he loves.
Today, TCH Watersports has grown to 16 technicians and is constantly expanding to find new ways to provide outstanding service. With a used parts department, mini-storage facility and a brand new showroom, TCH is the best in the area for any and all watercraft needs.
