It would seem that there is an issue with noise, wake size and pollution on this lake and while the text of the article includes waterskiing, wakeboarding and wakesurf, the title of the article and picture focus on wakesurfing.

It seems that a group of fisherman wrote a complaint. They were fine with wakeboarding and waterskiing but when combined with wakesurfing it was too much.

So thinking about the politics of it, it's my experience that fishermen, slalom skiers AND wakeboarders aren't thrilled with how we practice our sport. I had to wonder if the strategy of the fisherman was to get the waterskiers and wakeboards to combine against the wakesurfers in order to protect their sport.
