W.E.S.T. sac river ride
1 Attachment(s)

This free family-friendly public event is open to anyone interested in learning to wakeboard or who just want to check out the sport and what it has to offer! Various wakeboard boats will be available to ride, and Hyperlite will be providing 2013 gear to demo!

Boat owners launching for the event: Plan to launch at the Elkhorn ramp and come up river to the New Alamar Restaurant and marina. Most attendees plan to start launching at 11:00am.

People attending w/o a boat: Park at the New Alamar Restaurant (5999 Garden Highway Sacramento, CA 95837, <1/4 mile up river from Elkhorn launch). Come down to the Hyperlite booth on the marina patio for boat and demo gear access, or to grab a bite to eat. If you would like to ride, please plan to make a gas donation of $10-15 per set to boat owners.

The New Alamar will be cooking up a BBQ style menu on the patio in addition to offering their full dining menu and full bar.

There will be free giveaways courtesy of local boat shop Superior Boat. Event T-shirts will also be available for purchase.

Video/photo coverage of the event graciously provided by Shon Ribera at CreatingRockStars.com and other local photographers.

Here's my ride..

wksk8r 04-25-2013 12:28 PM

It's looking like we will have to postpone the WEST event. I was at the river yesterday and the water was very rideable, but the lowest I have ever seen it. I would not expect anyone to launch when the ramps/dock are crazy shallow. I had to walk my boat out at Discovery Park yesterday and Verona last week. If people are still interested in going out anyway, just let me know. Otherwise we can try later when the water is safer.
Sorry, I have been looking forward to this and have had a lot of response and interest from local riders and venues.
Post or PM me if there are questions.

lifetimewarranty 04-25-2013 2:21 PM

Sorry to hear this Rob...but good on you - better to be safe than sorry...

BTW - that is possibly the best looking SAN I've ever seen.

Bam6961 04-25-2013 6:23 PM

/What if the water level rises by next week?

Bam6961 04-27-2013 5:20 PM

good news! the W.E.S.T. event is still on!

Rob told me that the water level went up 2 feet yesterday and is forecasted to keep rising through the week!

wksk8r 04-28-2013 11:27 AM

Thanks Tim!
Brandon said it!!! It's ON fosho! The river is still rising and the ramp is looking good! Shasta has released water and the river will be rising all week! Hope to see all of you out there! I'm stoked...... If there are any question feel free to PM me or Email at nautiwakes@yahoo.com I will also keep an eye on here for posts.

Gnargnar 04-28-2013 7:59 PM

I know we'll have more than 3 boats....who else is coming?!

wksk8r 04-28-2013 10:00 PM

Mine, yours (Brandon), J's Tomcat, Hyperlite G23, My Brother's Sanger, I think there is an Axis 20 coming... I hit a few others and wait to hear back.

wksk8r 04-30-2013 8:09 AM

Awesome! I can't wait! So glad the river came up in time! Dan... try again, can't see the pics. Has everyone seen the website westriders.org?

wksk8r 04-30-2013 8:20 AM

Greg, we will have people to help out, chip in for gas, and admire your SAN!

dDubya 04-30-2013 9:40 AM

Sorry...these should work.



wksk8r 04-30-2013 2:31 PM

Fellow black boater!! nice LSV, what weight are you running in there?

dDubya 04-30-2013 11:23 PM

Thank you! For wakeboarding, just factory 4 tank ballast and wedge maxed. I plumbed in a 1100lbs sack in the locker and a 370lbs sack under the port seat and run a 750lbs sack on top of the port seat, factory tanks full.

I'm planing on bringing my Malibu. Hopefully I can work on my tow vehicle and get it ready for the day as well. Otherwise I may need to bum a ride, but I'm good for gas money and cleaning. Ill keep everyone posted.

HotBoarder10121 05-02-2013 12:28 AM

Got the tow vehicle ready
I'm def ready to go on sat, whether I have a crew or not

wksk8r 05-02-2013 12:36 AM

Dan I'm not much of a surfer, but I'm down! Zack either way we will see you on the water and dock for some fun!

dDubya 05-02-2013 10:00 AM

Will there be a place for others to tie-off and watch? I have a couple friends who might not be interested in riding, or pulling, but would like to watch and hang out.

Bam6961 05-02-2013 11:44 AM

I think the restaurant has a patio/dock

wksk8r 05-02-2013 7:30 PM

the Alamar has a patio/dock with a BBQ and bar. they can always jump on a boat to watch, they will only be asked for gas $ if they ride. They won't see much actual riding from the patio due to the no wake/ 5 MPH zone. Dan did you check out our webpage? westriders.org

dDubya 05-03-2013 10:10 AM

I did. We should have some sort of identifying placard or something for the group, so people wanting a pull know whose boat to jump on. A piece of paper taped to the inside of a windshield is what I'm thinking.

Bam6961 05-03-2013 12:00 PM

Ya thats a good idea dan! Maybe like, w.e.s.t. event boat?

dDubya 05-03-2013 12:24 PM

My buddy owns a print shop. I'll have him put together 20 placards and I'll bring them out in the am.

dDubya 05-03-2013 5:00 PM

Got the placards. I'll be at elkhorn by 1030 to hand em out. Just look for my boat (see pic in earlier post.

Bam6961 05-03-2013 9:58 PM


HotBoarder10121 05-04-2013 9:31 AM

Today is the day. Be safe everyone and smart! Ohh ya and have fun

dDubya 05-04-2013 11:04 PM

Yep. That was a great time. Can't wait till next year. Good job putting it together Rob! And very nice to meet you and everyone else.

Gnargnar 05-05-2013 12:45 AM
