Waddup east coasters, wonderin if there are any other riders on here from Connecticut...

Have any of you guys checked out Brownstone Wake Park near Middletown yet? I was thinkin about going but was wondering if anybody has given it a try yet..

Also what lakes/rivers do you find are the best to get some nice buttery water? I've been hittin Highland Lake in Winsted for a few years now in the evening and usually can find some decent calm water out there.. There's gotta be some hidden gems out there though where I can get away from all those tubers and other riff-raff.

Peace easy

Last year Brownstone was a piss poor excuse for a wake park. They put on a rail jam that was awful. Winches weren't working, they weren't set up to let people practice, It was awful. That said, I was thinking about giving it another try purely on the basis that they now have a system 2.0. Their rails are decent it was really just the owners doing things their way and it wasn't the best way. Hopefully its a little better this year. They had a nice a frame, a box that was falling apart, and a a small kicker equivalent to the wedges found at the large/beginner lake at OWC. Also you can do air tricks on the system. If you go let me know how it is and if they added any rails before I venture from NJ up there.

We're not an official club and we are not exclusive foilers. Let me know if you need a pull sometime.

yeah i heard about their system 2.0 and saw some video of it which looked kinda dope. I'm probably gonna head down there within the next few weeks to check it out.. It's the only cable park in the Northeast right?? I haven't been able to find any others..

and @Terry, where exactly do you guys go on the ct river? my dads boat is currently in the shop right now so im kinda stuck on dry land

I live in southwest CT, Danbury area. We have a bunch of real nice rivers/lakes that have glass. My knee is blown so I am not riding much this year, still in recovery. I heard the same thing about the wake park, that their winches sucked. Might try to check it out if they have a system 2.0 now.

The winches are gone down at brownstone and the 2.0 is so dope makes riding a million times better. Terry you should try and bring the foil down i dont think its ever been done on cable before.
