I'm headed to my starting point, Philadelphia, for a week. When I left I didn't know what wakeboarding was. What's the seen over there? Where can I go to get on the water? Any proshops in the area? I'm not having much luck searching the net. I'll be in Delaware for a few days also.

I have never been on the Schuylkill. We go north of Philadelphia on the Delaware River near Bristol. We go to SOS in PT Pleasant, NJ. for our gear.

In 2002 the X Games were in Philadelphia and I saw the pros wakeboard in the SchuylkillRiver. The water looked shallow, scummy and nasty, just like you'd expect an inner-city river to be in a 200+ year old city. I've read some postings here about people who wakeboard way up the Schuylkill River somewhere where the water is supposed to be cleaner, but good luck. I know Jeff Barton has a wakeboard operation happening just outside of Philadelphia. <a href="http://www.rideecs.com" target="_blank">www.rideecs.com</a> Be sure to tell Jeff I sent you. Finally, Liquid Sports Authority is in Pensauken, NJ and you can call them at 856-488-9443.
