Hey,
Anyone riding around the Fargo/Moorhead area this weekend? We'll be putting our boat in for good on Pelican Lake just 45 minutes SE of Fargo. Finally getting the boat lift in the water (missing parts from when we bought it). If you're around and want to ride let me know. WEs

Old    Jay (ironj32)      Join Date: Jan 2007       06-12-2008, 11:18 AM Reply   
i have. usually it's pretty good...get's crowded with fisherman in the sw bay...so be prepared for dirty looks! if the winds out of the North or Northeast it gets rough. the launch is super shallow (3-4 ft) all the way out about 150-200 yards! be sure to idle very slowly (throttle on, throttle off). i walk/push my boat off the trailor...there is a good rock mound the whole with of the launch from dudes power loading there outboards.

Sorry i didn't get back to anyone yesterday. I felt like hell all day,then today I got to work and the internet was down,anyways; I didn't get the net going till about 4:30 this afternoon. Is anyone riding this weekend? I am for sure riding Sat, and as of now there is only a few of us.Then Sun nothing on the books, but want to ride. If anyone needs a tow leave me a message, and i'll be more than happy to have you come out.

Moxilla - the launch is in Clifton E. French Regional Park. it's right off of County Rd 9 (if you're coming from 494 go East, if you're coming from 169 go West). you'll see the sign for it on the south side of cty rd 9.

the MCL is coming along well. i actually got out last night and just rode switch the whole time...no flips or spins. that switch toeside wake2wake takes some getting used to!

Hey, you guys are making me miss home so much that I'm flying in on june 26-29th. I grew up just around the corner from Lake Owasso!! To bad I moved to California before wakeboarding was such a big deal, now I have to drive 6 hours to get to an overcrowded, wind-blown, chopped up lake! Sucks to be me!! Anyway, could anyone suggest how I might hook up on a wakeboarding boat. We are renting a condo on Clearwater Lake, Annandale, Mn. Just an hour outside the twin cities. We'll even consider place to stay at condo if you want to drive your boat up, or if you know someone who would be interested in renting theirs....thanks for the help, and if your ever in So Cal look me up, we have a supra launch!

OK, here are some pics from tonight. I knocked myself silly a few times with John T's mega wake, but it was a great time. Too many great pics, so I compiled them. Enjoy.

Hey, nice pics chad! looks like you had a blast! Thanks again for the invite, both you and Don caught me on the lake, i was under the Minnesotan sun all day...and after a full tank of gas went empty we loaded 'er up.

Again...haha, if anyone wants to give this loaner (me) a pull tomorrow, let me know!

owasso was absolute crap, so bad I left early. Every spot at the launch and at the beach overflow was full, and the lake was swarming with everybody. If it keeps up, I might be finding a new lake.

To top it off, my ignition switch was intermittently not working, my stereo is still not 100%, and I found a new way to scratch my gelcoat by taking it off the trailer. Not a good day for me at all.

ALright! Enough of this...as the weather gets nicer..the water gets worst! Ugh! i hate going after work and not even enjoying all the effort i put in to getting out there, getting the boat ready, fat sacs...etc... I am an early bird and i have a proposition.

On weekends i usually go out to Wi to ride earlier in the morning. but i was thinking, maybe we could get a weekend crew! Something like every saturday morning, or every sunday morning say...7 30 or 8 am. We meet at perhaps Owasso, which seems to be a good meeting point for most. I have two buddies who would be delighted. We could take turns on towin out there etc...

Just a shot at making an early morning weekend crew, that way we all get good water, no tubers, no wind, no Bull Sh#t! Whose in? If we get enough people, this could be sweet, and we could do it most of the season! Let me know, i'm MORE than willing to do it and to tow my boat out to Owasso early mornings once a week!

count me and my boat in. I am sick of it, I had another crap day at owasso tonight. Full of 4 wakeboarding with fishing boats, 2 skiing, 2 jetskiers (one jumping our wake making it crap once we turn around), one tuber, and THAT guy prerequsite jacka$$ going 30MPH in a circle around the lake (you all know what I am talking about). It is getting old, Screw this, I go during the week to avoid this and this year has been the absolute worst I can remember ever as far as daily boat traffic.

I dunno....kind of funny watching you guys being chased by a slew of jet skiers and tubers...seriously, Eder, I need to get your DVDs back to you, Don and Mike--you hook me up with some aluminum for my lift, and I owe you some pulls! The wife is out of commission until junior is old enough, but I say we do some boarding whenevs!

And, Chad! I gotta get my handle from ya! Lets get the band back together!

Call me guys!

I feel you guys on all the traffic on the lakes...it's ridiculous this year!

I used to get to the lake at like 4, but have decided it's not even worth it. Lately we've been getting there at about 7 and ridding till dark, which seems to have helped a little, but it's not like it was in April and May.

I wish you guys were more in my neck of the woods. I have a lake that's calm 99% of the time. Even on the weekends.

I'm in for Saturday mornings. I'll have to see if I can make it this Saturday.

Don, I was on Owasso last night too. It was definitely rough, but we found a little calm. Daren, I forgot the handle again, so I didn't stop by. I'll throw it in the car so I won't forget for next time.

Michael, was that you in the Centurion on Owasso last night?

I'm down for Saturday mornings when I'm around on Owasso/Josphine.

I'm likely going to be around this weekend, so shoot me a line if you are going out

Cool...this Saturday i have to work, so i cant unless we do it on Sunday, if you guys want to begin the Saturday or Sunday morning crew without me, have at it! I will definitely join beginning next week (again, unless we do it on sunday)

FOR WHOEVER IS IN - lets get a count, a time, a place and a date...lets get it goin asap, its sounding like we could at times, have 2 boats out, and still share good water, we can take some chase vids and pics too! I'm getting excited, so lets get a head count and set it up!!! Most of the time, it will be 3 counting myself (2 guys that ride with me)

Chad - i'll hit that lake of yours up anyday, just give me a few days in advance notice and it can be done my man! see you all soon!

Tuneman, I got out there about 7:00 last night,kind of a last minute decision.

yea, Owasso is gonna pretty much jacked at night now that it is warm out. I would be up for mornings also. I am at my cabin in Turtle Lake a lot of weekends, but when I'm in town deinitely, My boat is always hooked up and ready to rock.

Mike,

You say your cabin is on Turtle Lake? Is it the Turtle Lake by Fish Trap and Alexander? Im sure there are a few lakes in MN called Turtle. My cabin is on Fawn Lake. Its really small but its right down the road from Turtle.

Some guy was on to it. He posted this:

Taking their entire online course while riding a wakeboard, proving that online courses are useless and can be done by anyone, even while doing something else. Students will then be given "diplomas" to signify the great extent of their "education" online.


Kind of funny that college credits can be obtained while wakeboarding. Not sure how far those credits will take you...
