If one wanted to fish/boat/ski in Orlando, what's available? I know the beach is about an hour away, but is there anything locally? On Google maps it looks like all the water sources are pretty small.

Have you looked at the Butler chain of lakes? It's very popular for all of those.

Orlando is only home to some of the world's best professional water skiers, wake boarders, and anglers, as well as countless other amateurs. I think we do just fine with those hundres of lakes literally in our suburban backyards, and an amazing river like the St. Johns on the northern edge of the metro. Oh and you already mentioned the cherry on top, less than an hour to surf at the beach.

Butler Chain of Lake, Lake Dora Chain, Conway Chain, Lake Brantley are all fairly large lakes in the area. You can spend the entire day on these lakes and not feel like your doing circles in a pool.
