I'm going to be moving to SoCal (more specifically Long Beach) in Sept. for the next year and was hoping that someone in the area needs a 2nd/3rd/whatever?

I have a few friends in the area, but none of them ride anymore; so I'm hoping someone out in that area needs a person (read: doesn't mind another rider) that can ride, pay for gas, and has driven/taken care of their own inboard for 5+ years in Minnesota to tag along for some sets.

you need to make friends w/ canyon lake residents (or those that ride w/ them). otherwise, good luck. i hate to say it, but socal's not the best for wake.

Thanks for the heads up Joe! That's kind of what I had figured with there not being to much going on down there.

So the offer/shameless begging is still up if anyone is riding anywhere around socal, I'm down to drive just about anywhere to ride!

Ohhh cmon Jooee... don't be a negative nancy. Give us some credit, we're trying! = ( There's still a few of us that hold it down a couple times a week all year round outside of canyon. You mind cold water and early mornings Sinko? We're pretty full up in the summer, but from late october to february its normally just two of us ridin elsinore or long beach with a drysuit and loads of glass.

oh, i'm not being a "negative nancy" at all....just being realistic. elsinore's usually blown out by 9am, sometimes 8. castaic lake is called "mistake lake" for a reason. long beach gets crowded as well. what's left? the only 2 choices for decent to good water are the elsinore channel, which last i checked, was $40 to use, and canyon lake. i don't know about you, but i hate riding in crappy water.

yea I knowit Joe... I agree with ya. It is tough around here. but we make it work if youre willing to ride early mornings, cold winters, weekdays, long drives, pay for ski coves & channels, and get to know people at private lakes ; )

haha nah sinko, not 40. we normally obey the 100 degree rule in socal. Hit me up when you get in and we'll try and work ya into the rotation

I will add fuel to this fire. I have posted about half a dozen times and no repsonse. I don't even ask for much - just gas money. I never asked for a wipe down. So I don't know what is wrong in SoCal - but it has been lame this year.

John has it. Summer is mid week, winter is drysuit. It's there. Don't be bashful about 4am get ups and drives... and you'll get your good water pulls. No problem.

Man it's good to hear some people are trying to make it happen down here. I moved from nor cal to redondo and have only been out once this summer and its killing me. It certainly does help to have a 9 to 5er tho. Anyway, for anyone who rides on the weekends I'm looking for a pull. Early mornings are fine. Rode year round last winter in sac river so cold water isn't an issue. Can donate gas money, clean boat, drive (have my cap. license), etc. Let me know and ride safe.

Just got done hitting up Perris with Rich and his crew. Thanks again, super fun 'sick' day = ) here's some pics. Like I said, if you don't mind weekdays, you can definately make it happen here in socal.

I don't want to hear "I'm too old to try anything, I just want to stay healthy" from anyone again. Rich, 61 years old still learning new tricks. Inspiring to know I'll still be physically able to ride at that age... You'll get that ts 3 down soon Rich!

Sorry about the cellphone pics...

A little off topic. I spent a few years in the AV (Lancaster) in the eighties. There was a quarry lake just out of Palmdale in the foothills over Peablossom that had deep water but I cant remember ever seeing a boat there. Maybe too small, no power boats or something else. I only went there once or twice. Do you know what I.m talking about?
