I'm looking for some lakes or bodies of water to ride on in North America and International, anywhere in the world actually, any suggestions? <BR> <BR>Beautiful and unique, water and landscape you only see there, if you have any pics post them please. <BR> <BR> <BR>thanks

kyle_m 12-18-2008 10:40 PM

somebody is finding locations to film at lol <BR>id say bullards bar in cali is awesome and ive seen pics of places in tahiti that are amazing

sidekicknicholas 12-18-2008 10:41 PM

The place in Thailand from Natural Born Thrillers is the single coolest place I have ever seen

lsukuntryboy 12-18-2008 10:52 PM

whatever lake in croatia that is clear. there is a pic of a MC sittin on the water there and it looks like its floatin on air cause the water is so clear.

wakeboardern1 12-18-2008 11:00 PM

Then there's the lake inside an island that is inside of a lake that is inside an Island... In the phillipines. <BR> <BR>It might actually go one deeper than that, can't remember. They were talking about it in the article about Out of the Pond in Alliance. I could seriously see a helicoper shot from way up high showing the lake within a lake, cutting down, step by step with the song to a final shot of the rider on the smallest lake... I actually have a feeling that they'll have that.... <BR> <BR>Anyways, whatever lake that is.

dirty 12-18-2008 11:25 PM

ya we've been to the Phillipines, Bali, Indonesia, Fiji, Austrailia, Lake Powell <BR> <BR>but there's always some crazy spots you never think about, like I saw a picture of this lake in Idaho with huge step walls on both side and the water was always flat and smooth and I don't think anyone ever wakeboarded there only a couple skiers, interesting places like that would be fun and we love to travel all over the world, so just trying to find some cool spots ya know

bftskir 12-18-2008 11:32 PM

we could tell ya but then we'd have to kill ya

Broken Bow Oklahoma... Surrounded by mountains and forests. Not even allowed to build on the lake so it looks like you are completely in the wilderness. The lake is over 300ft deep in places and the water is very clear. <BR> <BR>Might not compare to some international destinations, but I'd put it right up there with the best of them for the states.

lfadam 12-19-2008 2:16 AM

So youve done some good ones already, huh? Well Im not gonna give away all of my dream prospects...but I will tell you this one, because its probably the least likely to ever happen for me and I want someone to do it. Lake Charvak in Uzbekistan. Crazy? Possibly. Good luck getting in there, much less a wake boat and wakeboard but wow would it be epic. Id be thrilled to see anyone film there. E-P-I-C! <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Lac_Tcharvak.jpg" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Lac_Tcharvak.jpg</a> How I stumbled upon this?...I have no idea

crushing76 12-19-2008 3:12 AM

figured I'd post a link to a pic of Broken Bow. THere are TONS of coves to find butter on. THere are also several places to cliff dive with water deep enough to not crack the melon. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.visitbeaversbend.com/images/broken%20bow%20lake4.jpg" target="_blank">http://www.visitbeaversbend.com/images/broken%20bow%20lake4.jpg</a>

I've always thought Lake Kinkaid in Southern IL would make a good spot for filming. It wouldn't be as epic as some of the international locations, but it has a lot of rolling hills and a cliff on one side that would make a nice backdrop and a good place for cliff diving. On the other side there is the spillway that would make a sick winch spot, and if you time it right all the college girls would be out there in bikinis laying out. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/653176.jpg" alt="Upload">

I've always wanted to head up to the Eastern Sierra and ride one of the many epic lakes that are there. It'd be cold as the snow melt keeps things brisk and the altitude might present a problem. One of my favorites that has a launch is Lake Sabrina. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/653282.jpg" alt="Upload">

rallyart 12-19-2008 1:59 PM

Great Bear Lake. It's on the Arctic Circle so you can run 24 hours a day at the end of June and still be in daylight. There is only one town on the lake and only two towns in the whole watershed. <BR>OK, so getting your boat there is tricky but that just means there are no other wakes. Oh, and the biggest lake trout they've caught there was 74 pounds. Bring bug spray.

stephan 12-19-2008 2:12 PM

fatsac, I did. Look at May 25th (Memorial Day). I was 50 or so miles south trying to summit Mt. Sill and we got this picture. Weather in the Sierras is fickle! <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/653295.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR>(sorry for the sidetrack everyone, carry on)

billy2603 12-19-2008 2:16 PM

You could also go the other way and look for bodies of water that are near/in the middle of a city. I'm sure there are canals or rivers that run right next to city landscapes. Might be able to set up some cool night shots with skyline in the background. <BR> <BR>Oh, how about doing the Grand Canal in Venice?

There's a section in Natural Born Thrillaz with Josh Sanders &amp; Randy Harris. <BR> <BR>Anyways, there's always Oahu, Hawaii.

The moat around Angkor Wat, siem Reap, Cambodia is my pick for amazing lakes.

paradise_adventures_costa_rica 12-20-2008 10:40 AM

My name is Jonathan Turcotte Owner and Operator of Paradise Adventures Cost Rica. <BR> <BR>To expand the market here in Costa Rica I have spent a great deal of time and effort putting the word out there globally. <BR> <BR> <BR>I Moved to Nuevo Arenal February 2008, was operating on the Pacific Coast, in the province of Guanacaste in the Bahia Célèbre, situated in the Papagayo peninsula two years prior. <BR> <BR>This town now called Nuevo Arenal as the old Arenal is at the bottom of the lake. Thirty years ago, ICE filled the lake and sank the town bellow it. The lake is now damned and used for electricity. <BR> <BR>Lake Arenal has a reputation of being one of the top ten places in the world for Kite boarding and windsurfing. The winds on this fifty-mile lake are very predictable, blowing in the same directions for the majority. What makes Lake Arenal great for wakeboarding is the amount of coves and islands that break down the winds. The lake itself has a boomerang shape to it and at the end where the winds are blowing from is a huge wall Called, Vulcan Arenal. <BR> <BR>There are many places on Lake Arenal you can find great conditions for wakeboarding; all have their own special charm. <BR>The volcano being by far the most magical, just approaching Vulcan Arenal astounds you. The volcano rumbles, pumps smoke and spits boulders and lava every day. During the evening on a clear night, you can experience the awe of one of Mother Nature’s light shows. Pictures are worth many words but even words cannot explain how incredible this experience is. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to ride in such an amazing spot, and feel the need for others to experience this. <BR> <BR>Lake Arenal is part of the Guanacaste Province and is situated between the towns of Nuevo Arenal, La Fortuna, Monterverde and Tilaran. Lake Arenal is also conveniently located between Costa Rica’s two major airports; The Daniel Odober Airport in Liberia and The Juan Santa Maria in San Jose the capital of Costa Rica. <BR> <BR>From the San Jose Airport, you could make it here by bus or car in three and half hours or by plane into la Fortuna in less than 40 minutes. From the Liberia Airport, you could make it here by car or bus in less than 2 hours. <BR> <BR>Nuevo Arenal is situated above the lake, throughout the town you can take in some spectacular views of Lake Arenal and its Volcano. The town has a small town feel, locals are friendly and exited to meet and mingle with the tourist. Nuevo Arenal has plenty of great places to eat, ranging from local specialties, pizza joints, steak houses, German cuisine, fine coffee shops and one of lonely planet’s 2009 number one recommendations The Gingerbread Restaurant. <BR>The boat is a 2005 Tahoe 195, it runs 19.5 in length, 9 feet in width with deep V hull, powered by a 4.3L.mpi vortex with 220 hp, equipped with a tower, and plenty of room for 8 passengers, Polk Audio tower speaker and marine amplifiers. <BR>The wake has and glassy approach, with a nice lip and plenty hard. <BR>Thank you for taking the time to discover Paradise Adventures Costa Rica and its magical location In Nueva Arenal. Please feel free to share this information with anyone you wish, should you have any questions please contact us. <BR>Contact us for more information on pricing and availability; we are ready to make your visit to Neuvo Arenal Costa Rica a vacation. <BR> <BR> <BR>Accomodations <BR>Paradise Adventures Costa Rica’s new home @ Coceptos Artisticoss <BR> <BR>Paradise Adventure Costa Rica is pleased to offer accommodations to visitors from such an amazing location. <BR> <BR>Coceptos Artisticos is not just your average lodging.

Cherry Lake just outside Yosemite. Above Sonora. 4700 ft elev. <BR>Beautiful. sorry I don't have pics. <BR>make sure your brakes are in good shape and do not be in a hurry or you will fry your brakes just getting there. Its worth the drive though. <BR>Crystal clear. with Yosemite like scenery. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by bftskir on December 21, 2008)

TigeMike, Devils Fork State Park looks great for a long weekend! It doesn't look that far from Cary, NC. Any ideas on best time to go let me know. <BR> <BR>Kyle L. That pic you posted looks great! The boat looks as if it is floating on air instead of water. We have/had a lake here, White Lake, that is somewhat clear due to a fresh water spring. Haven't been in a while, so I do not know if the grass and weeds have taken over. <BR> <BR>MarshallK, the pic you posted is a great shot!!

chpthril 12-21-2008 4:25 PM

Pootie, <BR> <BR>I've been there anywhere from late May to the end of Oct. End of Summer is by far the best, but if you dont mind the cold, it's awesome when the leaves are changing. If you want to camp, need to make your reservations a few months in advance, if you want to rent a cabin, you need to call the park office and find out what day the cabin rentals open, they typically rent out in a couple of weeks (for week ends).

I don't know anyone that has ever been in the water at Diablo. It's that color for a reason, glacial run-off... I guess if the redbull guys were willing to hit up those icebergs there are people out there willing to hit diablo. <BR> <BR>Good luck though

wakekat15 12-22-2008 7:17 AM

Bear Lake in Idaho is very cold until summer, but just an awesome sight. The golf course next to it is pretty cool to play as well! <BR> <BR>It has been called the "Caribbean of the Rockies" for its unique turquoise-blue color, the result of suspended limestone deposits in the water. It was formed at least 150,000 years ago by fault subsidence that continues today, slowly deepening the lake along the eastern side.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/654001.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/654002.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/654003.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/654004.jpg" alt="Upload">

gotta agree with a few that were already mentioned: <BR>Broken Bow, OK <BR>Lake Amistad, TX <BR> <BR>Haven't seen this one mentioned yet, at least one film was done there, Texas Best Kept Secrets - Who Knows: Possum Kingdom. Nice cliffs and backdrops. Let me look for a pic...

There has been a boat in Lake Arenal offering wakeboarding for over a year now. <BR>Check out link for more details <BR><a href="http://paradise-adventures-costa-rica.com/" target="_blank">http://paradise-adventures-costa-rica.com/</a> <BR>There has been others, they just did not do there homework, running a business here takes allot of money and patience. <BR>A ton of money for taxes to import a boat and allot for legalities and insurance for an extreme sports ran on a man made lake, used by the Costa Rica Government for electricity. <BR>two words, law suit. <BR>It took me 3 years of paperwork and lawyers fees, to set my business up legally, I would highly advise anyone bringing a boat here to think and save allot of money before doing so, the government is not going to accept an apology for not going the distance. Down here in Costa Rica they will take your boat and slap you with a huge fine. Your boat will be tied up in courts for years, would be easier to start over again.

I take at least one trip a year to Broken Bow Lake. Here are a few pics, definitely an awesome lake to get away to. We are normally one of the few boats on the entire lake when we are there. The camping is awesome for sure. <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/655419.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/655420.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/655421.jpg" alt="Upload">
