Any one else get stupid comments about being a wakeboarder from people?

Nope. Most wish they could spend their summers on a sweet boat, hanging with friends, cranking the tunes, and riding.

Wakeboarders are not really a group of similar people, they come in all shapes, sizes, ages and races. But as a rule we are better looking and smarter..

Most of the time being associated with the wake crowd is good but I don't always feel the love. I have had crank baits casted at me and a good number of my lake neighbors look at me like I have TB when they find out I wakeboard. Apparently some of them aren't too fond of the wakes and the loud music others blair.

No one ever gives me crap about wakeboarding. Some do ask about drug use and the stoner image that is more and more associated with the sport.

The only thing I have heard is from skiers.... "If skiing was easy, it would be called wakeboarding"... It went something like that. Fisherman hate us.

at one of our local contests this year, on a river that is fairly heavily trafficked, we had trouble getting people to slow down while cruising by the course area. we told one guy his wakes were making it hard to wakeboard, and his comeback was "did you hear what you jsut said? the wakes are making it hard to wakeboard..." some people just do'nt get it.

BG i think it goes something like this...."If you don't have 7 or 8 people hating on you, than you aren't doin things big enough" Quote by Joel Deroache

I get glared at from people fishing all the time, but none of them have had the balls to say anything. They wouldn't have much ground to stand on, since I start early and beat them to the spots I like to board at. Don't like my wake? Well I was here first, so feel free to fish elsewhere.

I've only seen someone try to ruin a wakeboarder's day once. My dad was trying to learn backside surface 180s and he caught a heelside edge and took a really hard fall. Some rental pontoon boat full of 50-somethings started pointing and laughing, with some young children on board no less. What great role models they are.

Around our River, the fishermen pay us back by coming up behind us at 65MPH all jacked up and riding squirrly, then jumping our wake just missing the rider... so I guess it is equal... I throw a big wake on them while they are fishing then they mess up the water for me while ridind...

Webb, get a pic of that if you can with the number's on the fishing boat, then give the pics to the water cops. In most states they have to be 100' back.

nothing gets me more heated then when some JACKA$$ comes flyin up right behind someone riding...that's not equal to me throwin a nice roller in your direction and your BOAT taking on a bit of water...when you do stupid stuff like almost clip a rider or drive around right behind someone in tow you're putting their life at risk...that's not an equal trade...thats stupididty...mayeb it's just me

Other than a few random fisherman, no problems here, just all positive stuff. Well, except my friends that give me crap because I spend a bunch of time on the boat, and it does not look like I work, or even have a job or responsibilities. Sucks to be me!

Most of the people that complain around here are a bunch of blue hair yankee bastards that think they can move here and then run the show. We are over run here with Margarets, Howards, Ediths and whatever else they name em up north. Thats why we have gators and mosquitos here. They control the yankee population by eating them or giving them malaria.

Just beat the crap out of them and leave them lying in a pool of their own blood. That will shut'em up. If that doesn't work beat up their girl friend then mother.

Some guys just give all of us a bad name. It's the guys that intentionally bother other people on the lake. Or how about some of the guys on this forum that say other boarders are posers if they can't pull inverted tricks. It's in every sport. There will always be that 1 guy that ruins it for others.

just look at the skiers and say "wow you know how to ski!!! That was really popular in the 70's" and just smile as the chicks on your boat crack up.

Buck em dude, if somebody gives you crap when you see them sitting still ride by and "fall" so that the driver can cut a HUGE A double up and send tons of rollers there way.

Why knock skiing? Its the sport that created wakeboarding. I do both and enjoy both alot. Can't say that I am ashamed of it, nor would I ever knock someone for doing something they obviously enjoy. If someone gives you slack, f'em but their is no reason to be put yourself in the same category.

Never lower yourself to their level, take the high road, chalk it up to envy.
