nuckledragger 02-16-2010 5:55 AM

Great news. A good excuse to get the season started.

innov8 02-16-2010 8:00 AM

We have been getting a lot of emails with riders saying they want to ride, so we will make that happen. <BR> <BR>20 bucks for the day, good deal as well. <BR> <BR>We still have a lot of work to get finished, but we can get that done during the week and let you riders shred on the weekends. <BR> <BR>Thank you to everyone for all your support

devildog_ra 02-16-2010 8:57 AM

txwakerider 02-16-2010 2:27 PM

Josh Potter??? Is he living up here in DFW now, or did he just come to install the cable?? That guy is awesome I hope he is up here now!

innov8 02-16-2010 3:17 PM

Josh Potter is living on lake Granbury at the moment. <BR> <BR>He will be leaving sometime in April, he is helping get the park dialed in. <BR> <BR>Yes Josh is an awesome guy for sure, we are stoked to have him.

innov8 02-16-2010 3:18 PM

Very cool Ryan, I will see you out at the park. <BR> <BR>Thanks for your support!!

waketx05 02-16-2010 3:20 PM

So wakesport ranch is in cresson... Are they still building the other in Dallas?? What was its name?

innov8 02-16-2010 3:47 PM

Yes Ryan, Dallas Watersports Complex is the Cable going into Dallas.

johnm_ttu 02-16-2010 4:36 PM

Jeff, <BR> <BR>Let me make sure I am getting this right, you guys are going to be open every weekend starting March 6th? <BR> <BR>Ryan, <BR> <BR>I think March 27th looks good for me. I need to do about 73465271 pull-ups before I let the cable own me.

innov8 02-17-2010 8:43 AM

John this is the plan. <BR> <BR>We will open on the 6th and 7th of March. <BR> <BR>If the demand is high and a lot of riders show up to ride, then we will open every weekend. <BR> <BR>We have a lot of landscaping and work to still finish during the week. <BR> <BR>I will keep everyone updated.

shredred 02-17-2010 9:51 AM

can't wait to see that shred ready kicker.

innov8 02-17-2010 11:29 AM

Yeah the adjustable SR kicker, is going to be siiiick.

waketx05 02-17-2010 1:43 PM

im stoked.. ill be moving up there soon. ill have to come meet you jeff and see how much its gonna take for me to get behind one of those epics. i prolly wont be able to make it out for opening weekend. but believe me wen i say that once im established.. i will be a regular face at the park.

innov8 02-17-2010 2:04 PM

Come on by anytime Ryan, I look forward to meeting you and getting you out in an Epic on some glass as well as on the Cable. <BR> <BR>No problem, this isn't really our Grand opening, just a soft opening to get all the riders out to ride and get the place dialed in. <BR>We still have a lot of work to do around the site, so you wont miss the real Grand Opening later this year.

rivrat 02-17-2010 3:10 PM

Jeff me and a crew are flying out from nor cal the 15-21 can't wait to ride your park

jdwake1 02-17-2010 4:40 PM

marshk344 02-18-2010 12:36 PM

Nice! I'll be back in town the 20th and 21st. I'll definetely have to stop by. Although it will be my first time on back on a wakeboard since last May...lookin foward to it though!

devildog_ra 02-24-2010 6:29 AM

MAN its soooo cold i might renig on going on the 6-7th. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/sad.gif" border=0>

eubanks01 02-24-2010 6:49 AM

Ryan - I hear you. Today is brutal in Dallas with the wind. I'm still game for anything over 50-55 degrees!

innov8 02-24-2010 9:45 AM

Well we will see, you know what they say about the weather and Texas, so lets hope for a nice sunny weekend, with no wind!!

hughes144 02-24-2010 10:10 AM

Eubanks, <BR> <BR>What wind?

eubanks01 02-24-2010 10:52 AM

The 20mph north wind I was facing downtown this morning! It's like a wind tunnel down heere though making it feel much worse that it is.

hughes144 02-24-2010 11:50 AM

Are you on something? Because it's more of breezing air and I work outside! Dork!

hughes144 02-24-2010 11:55 AM

Jeff, <BR> <BR>No fins alloweed? I know mawi doesn't.

hughes144 02-24-2010 11:59 AM

Allowed..... <BR> <BR>I'm talking about using it on rails, sliders, kicker or whateber you have out there. <BR> <BR>Sorry for multi posting.

eubanks01 02-24-2010 12:17 PM

Adam - Your 1.5 inch surf fins will be fine since you're too scared to hit any of the manly obstacles.

innov8 02-24-2010 12:29 PM

No wind at WakeSport Ranch today, the lake is butter!! <BR> <BR> <BR> Adam, correct No metal fins allowed on obstacles. <BR> <BR>I am getting pumped, it is going to be sick, the first Kicker went into the lake today. <BR> <BR>The Shred Ready adjustable Kicker will go in this week as well. <BR> <BR>CGA vest and helmets are mandatory, as well.

eubanks01 02-24-2010 12:37 PM

Got my Shred Ready helmet at home! Now I'm ready for the Shred Ready kicker! <BR> <BR>So the adustable part just allows you to remotely raise or lower the kicker?

devildog_ra 02-24-2010 12:40 PM

i think im still coming. ill have the dry suit and shorty on standby

hughes144 02-24-2010 12:46 PM

Plastic fins?? <BR> <BR>Eubanks, I'll get you back!

eubanks01 02-24-2010 12:59 PM

What's the water temp Jeff? Drysuit for me please. <BR> <BR>So how many people do you think will be there on the 6th?

innov8 02-24-2010 1:35 PM

Poly fins like the ones on a Hyperlite Clash are ok, what board are you riding? <BR> <BR>Yes Eubanks we can adjust the kicker via remote control, from about 3feet to 5 feet. <BR> <BR>The water Temp is cold, but we do just fine in a wetsuit, full suit of course. <BR> <BR>Well as far as riders go, I have had quite a few emails and phone calls from riders saying they will be there, but I really don't know how many will actually show up over both days, I have received about a 100 email/phone calls.

eubanks01 02-24-2010 1:51 PM

Wow! And just think about all the people that are coming that haven't called or emailed. I hope we get more than a couple of rides! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/crazy.gif" border=0>

rivrat 02-24-2010 2:04 PM

Jeff we will be heading out in march the 15-21 four of us have our plane tickets bought and five more are saying there going to make it how many obstacles do you think you will have up by then and if you know anybody who wants to take a boat set that week we would be more than happy to kick down for some gas. We'll be sure to bring our full wet suit, vests, and helmets thanks for the info

innov8 02-24-2010 2:36 PM

Stephen we will have 2 kickers a wedge and a flatbox in the lake For March 6th and 7th <BR> <BR>We will start building Hyperlites obstacle pretty soon and Epic boats obstacle as well and we will be adding an incline rail as well. <BR> <BR>I will let Hyperlite and Epic boats tell you what they are having us build, lets just say they are both sick obstacles. <BR> <BR>Stephen, hopefully you know that the park will only be open on the weekends in March, if you meant May then that's a different story, we should have Hyperlite's and Epic's Obstacle and the incline installed by May.

stephan 02-24-2010 2:50 PM

Perfect answer! May is our trip and I can't wait for it. <BR> <BR>Any suggestions on getting from DFW to WSR? Anybody?

eubanks01 02-24-2010 2:53 PM

The same way all us Texans do...by horse. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by eubanks01 on February 24, 2010)

innov8 02-24-2010 3:17 PM

Hahahahahaha Eubanks. <BR> <BR>How many are in the group Stephan, so I can see what I can setup for you.

We will have the small kicker the big Shred Ready Adjustable Kicker

The Wedge

The incline

The Flatbox

in the lake

eubanks01 03-04-2010 5:28 PM

Sick! Thanks for the update. Water temp today? Is it doable just with a heater top all day?

jdwake1 03-04-2010 5:40 PM

Lmao I love potters green shortie!

innov8 03-05-2010 9:13 AM

Eubanks it was toasty in a 4/3 Jp Wetsuit.

We had a rider that rode in a heater top and b-shorts and he said it was fine.

I would bring a heater top for sure and a wetsuit just in case, the water is cold, I dont know the Temp, I just know its cold.

I had ordered some heater tops and wetsuits, but I have not received them yet, hopefully they will come today.

jasonpav 03-06-2010 2:34 PM

It's official, the cable park is completely awesome

the_bum 03-07-2010 5:18 PM

Sick sick sick! There is going to be some crazy riding going down around DFW this year. Keep your eyes open

eubanks01 03-08-2010 6:55 AM

Had a great time at WSR Saturday! Huge props to Jeff for working so hard to get this thing ready to ride. There is definitley a lot of work left, but I know everybody was pumped that they went ahead and opened it up for some ridiing. The flat box is going to be sick! Fun times were had by all. Now it's time to get into cable shape!

texasmoombav 03-08-2010 8:42 AM

Any pictures from saturday??

texastbird 03-08-2010 8:57 AM

Here's a little slideshow from Saturday's action

texasmoombav 03-08-2010 9:42 AM

Cool, Thanks Dan.
Looking forward to gettin out there

innov8 03-08-2010 10:43 AM

Thank you to all that came out to support the park this weekend.

We had a good showing Saturday, we had about 70 riders that rode and we also had a lot of spectators show up.

Yes we still have a lot of dirt work to finish, as well as getting all the obstacles done and in the lake, but we will work hard to get it all done.

Sunday's mud fest was brutal the rain made the walking around a lot of fun.
Nothing like an extra 5lbs of mud on each foot, walking back to the dock and around the facility to wear you out, but we still had riders come out a ride in the rain and mud, thank you.

Looks like we will open up this coming weekend as well for the Spring Break crowd and we will get that flatbox finished and put in the lake this week.

Thanks again to all.

Dustin Shows, Jack Farr,Chris and Josh Potter have been putting in long days and weeks to get the Cable rideable and I want to thank them as well for all the hard work they have and continue to put in.

I will post more info on this coming weekend as I get more info.

BigTEX 03-08-2010 12:25 PM

Jeff, Great job on the park it was well worth the drive down. I cant wait for next weekend when there are more obstacles in.

innov8 03-09-2010 8:37 AM

Thanks Joe, yes next weekend will be even better.

Here is a calendar, for this month, we will open quite a few days for the Spring Breakers.

http://www.wakesportranch.com/calendar-wsr.cfm

Also we will update pricing, we will have 2hr, 4hr and all day passes for the coming ride days.

Thank you again for everyone's support!!

gene3x 03-09-2010 9:09 AM

It was definately cold and muddy but that will change soon enough. I have not been on a board in almost 5 months and still had a good time. BTW I took my wetsuit off and trunked it so it is definately doable for all you wussy types. I suck at cable riding but cannot wait to start getting the feel for it. :)

stephan 03-09-2010 9:13 AM

Are you guys going to be open 7 days a week come summer time? 2 months & I can't wait!

eubanks01 03-09-2010 9:21 AM

Sure, it's doable but you forgot to mention how you were crying and begging for a heater top. :)

innov8 03-09-2010 9:35 AM

Big Heavy, we will be open at least 6days a week if not 7 come this summer.

If we go with 6 days a week it will be Tues thru Sunday, closed Monday.

I saw a few riders riding in just B-Shorts and a vest!!:eek:

JJ 03-10-2010 5:54 PM

Are the rental helmets Super Scrappys?!! That is awesome :)

innov8 03-11-2010 8:16 AM

Yes are rental helmets are Shred Ready Super Scrappy's:D.
