Vancouver WA / Portland OR
 
Hey, I just picked up a 92 Supra Sunsport. I'm still in the process of getting it dialed in for ballast though. It's a direct drive and I've only got 1 bag so far. I should be getting another bag pretty soon. I do have the tower and pefect pass though.

We've been putting in lately at Marine Park by downtown Vancouver on the Columbia River. My wife and I get off work at 4pm, so launching by 5pm is typically feasible.

VinnyQH 05-23-2013 4:58 PM

I'm always down, I live on the columbia jantzen beach text me anytime you need a third or want to come on my boat. 503-867-5000

What boat do you have Vincent?

sporte77 06-15-2013 8:34 AM

Weekday riders
 
I'm looking for a few more people to add to my list for weekday rides. If I go during the week - it's usually Monday or Friday & I launch at 1030am - go until 2pm. Surf and wakeboard - but open to skiing as well. 2012 VLX. If we can get in touch - I'd like to get more people on my text/email list. Having a hard time finding 3rds - since some of my regulars either got different jobs - or just find other excuses...

Sam
PM me if interested or reply please.:)

Hey guys, I just moved to the area (live in Camas, WA) from Omaha Nebraska. I'm looking for people to ride with. I don't have a boat out here so I would be looking to be a third. I don't have my board out here yet (should have it by July 4th), but am willing to be a driver until then. I work during the week though so I would only be available on weekends. PM me or reply if interested. Thanks guys.

Matt, once I get my boat back from the shop and figure out what it's all gonna need (Tranny's been slipping so I'm not sure if it's gonna need some $$$$ repairs), I'll definitely keep you in mind.

I'm up in the Salmon Creek area and usually launch from downtown Vancouver area.

We try to get out as much as possible. Typically put in at portco as well. Sam and I are always looking for riders although I'm typically a weekend guy due to my job.

Well, you know my boat situation from the other thread. What kind of boat are you running? Do you mostly wake, surf or both?

I just picked up a new Liquid Force Fish 5'9 surf board that I'm stoked to try out. Also have an older Broadcast 4'9. I wakeboard on my Belmont 143 w/ CWB hinge bindings.

If my boat ends up with some downtime, I will probably be hitting you up to get my fix. I work M-F 7:30am to 4pm, so I'm evenings and weekends too...


Edit: I saw your boat on your profile. Looks sweet. Looks like we're about the same age too.

trayson 07-15-2013 9:18 AM

Anyone going out this week or upcoming weekend that would have room for me, my son (7) and wife? My boat is down with the transmission getting rebuilt and I have my son through this weekend and then he has to go back to his mom's. So if I could get out on a someone else's boat before my son's visit is over, that would be really cool.

sporte77 07-15-2013 9:57 AM

Can't this week/weekend. Keep the posts up though :-)
Who's working on your trans?

It's getting rebuilt by Fantastic Finish Marine in OH. They do a FULL rebuild for $900, so I just bit the bullet to have it done right. I've got 530 hours on the boat, so it'll be good for a long time to come now. Got a killer deal with fedex ground for shipping it there, but it's taking a full 5 business days for shipping. I was out of town at the end of this past week, so it didn't bother me then, but now that I'm back--I wanna get back on the water!

sporte77 07-15-2013 10:07 AM

900 - not bad at all. It's been nice out there. We've been pretty slammed at work & then the busy weekends. We will probably hook up & go ride when the kids are back in school.

Well, when your schedule frees up, by all means LMK. My Supra directdrive is okay to surf behind, but I'd LOVE to get a ride sometime behind your 'Bu. Looks like an amazing ride. I'm still a bit of a surf newb, but I've been able to get 30 to 60 second freerides behind my Supra...

Vinny, it was awesome riding with your crew. You guys were a lot of fun to chill with. My transmission is rebuilt and I'll get it back on Friday. I'm out of town this weekend but will be working on getting the tranny back in early next week. I'll have my boat back soon! Woot!

trayson 08-23-2013 10:39 PM

Boat's back up and running. Would love to go our Saturday morning (8/23). I know it's a last minute post, but the wife and I don't have a 3rd to go with us. :banghead:

sporte77 09-11-2013 8:58 AM

Planning on launching this Friday (ah..the 13th!) @ Portco (aka Marine Park) in Vancouver @ 1030am. Wake, surf, whatever works. Kids are in school - so it's an adult run.
If you can make it - please PM me & I will look for you at the launch. (If you need a map, use google maps and search "SE Marine Park Way, Vancouver, WA").

Have a blast. We were out last night by the 205 bridge and it was fantastic.

I'm hitching a ride on a v-drive tonight. We won't be out Friday until after the wife get's off work. But my son flys in early Friday so I'm stoked we can even be out on the water instead of waiting at PDX.

Moving to Portland Area
 
Hey guys,
I will be moving to the Portland area in the next couple of months and am always looking to ride. I can drive the boat, have my own board, and always have gas money. Shoot me a text at 541.979.5155 if you are ever looking for a third or just another body in the boat.

Thanks,

Brady

Sounds good Brady. I definitely had times last season where I needed to secure a 3rd, so I'm sure we'll have ya out on the water this summer... :cool:

Looking to Get on the water
 
Hey guys,

Just moved to Portland a few months ago from Bloomington, IN. I rode on their waterski/wake team there for awhile, and just love being out on the water. Don't have a boat or any of my equipment out here yet, but I'm happy to be a third and/or drive if anyone is looking to go out, let me know.

Cheers,

Anthony

Cool. If you don't already, I suggest you pick up your boater's license. It's a one time fee and you don't have to ever renew it. I know that myself and other boat owners typically feel better if people we're gonna have drive have it. (Just in case the sherrif pulls us over.)

Looking forward to getting my boat ready for the season. :)

Midnightv10 03-20-2014 12:13 PM

Hey guys.. I also live in Vancouver.

We typically ride on both sides of Government Island (North side in the early mornings and calm evenings and South side when its not torn up by tubers lol...

looking forward to better weather (hate this time of year up here when we get a nice day here or there in March and April only to be followed by weeks of rain!!! sheesh!!

Anyway will most likely be looking for thirds or can be a third from time to time.

If you see us out in the Red and Black MB swing by and say hello :cool:

trayson 03-20-2014 12:18 PM

Sounds good. We rode there a lot at the beginning of last summer. We did hit up the Hayden Island Slough more towards the end of the summer--especially when the water level got lower.

This is my boat, it's pretty easy to spot the "stormtrooper" on the water.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-b...913_184400.jpg

Midnightv10 03-20-2014 1:09 PM

H.I. Slough is fun.. we sometimes go there in the evening and get a few sets in and then head up to the Island Café for some dinner...

will keep an eye out for the Stormtrooper

Just need spring to get here!

LadyJ 04-15-2014 1:35 PM

Hey coming down from Vancouver Canada to California. If you guys are riding early May I'd be down to join you guys for a ride or two. Have boat driving exerience, etiquette, gas cash, own gear and a friendly smile! Let me know the best way to get in touch :)

Cheers

Lady

VinnyQH 04-23-2014 5:26 PM

email is best way to get in touch with me. vinnyqh@gmail.com. I'll still be living on a floating home up till may 10th so i can take anyone out whenever (school permitting)

tracktor 05-13-2014 1:15 PM

We ride occasionally down on the Willamette & Columbia but usually stay up at our north Clark County lakes which are full of dangerous animals and chemicals so don't bother coming up!......................Really, it's scary up here...................

nwbrian 05-13-2014 4:11 PM

Saw this post. In Portland area also looking for a pull. Experienced rider and driver. Have my own gear and gas $.

trayson 05-21-2014 9:10 AM

Boat is dewinterized. Took it out last week and had a good shakedown day in the awesome weather. Gonna be back on the water for sure on Friday as I have the day off.

trayson 05-30-2014 11:22 AM

Who wants to go out with us on the Supra Sunsport on Saturday May 31st?

Or the wife and I could join one of you on your boat...

Hit me up!

Well, tomorrow it looks like we have a full crew. 7 peeps on a direct drive will be quite fun.

But I'll be out again for sure. Evenings tend to be the times I need 3rd, so stay tuned.

-Trayson

nwbrian 05-30-2014 10:49 PM

Thanks for response back. Feel free hit me up.

trayson 06-29-2014 9:23 PM

looking to go out Tuesday July 1. Supposed to be a high of 93. Will be launching at Vancouver Marine Park probably around 5:00 to 6:30pm, depending on what we decide.

Anyone want to join?

flyingtom 07-23-2014 4:56 PM

Hey there! I'm Tom, 27 years old and moved over from Germany to Portland in January. I thought I would only focus on studying here but there's more off time than expected and I miss wakeboarding. I was riding only at cable parks and I'm not that experienced, but I'm able to jump / slide over obstacles and also to learn new tricks! ;)

So I ordered last week a new wakeboard and now I’m looking forward to socialize with new people.
Anybody here with a free seat on his boat? Of course I'm willing to spend gas $ and help with cleaning the boat or whatever...
