Mike W. ~ How's life on the W. Side of UT Lake? You get a new house and a new wife and drop off the radar. Hope all is well...

Since a new thread is started... I guess I should mention I have finally got out of the boat whore business and invested in a boat. It was a good decision between the wife and I to order a 2012 MB F21 Tomcat. I'm so happy with the wake and the space of this 21 foot boat. It was awesome that we got to choose all the colors and the vinyl used and pic what options we wanted. The best options so far are extra heater outlets, LED lighting throughout, extra board racks, logo carpet, white trailer, etc... I have added a 12V plug to the front since the Tomcat requires extra weight up front, not sure how MB don't stock weight up front. Also added a Bluetooth receiver and its crazy cool now that we don't have cords. I have kept true to my words and left the tower speakers out, F'n hate them loud ass things! There's many people that I would like to have and owe pulls to, you are all not forgotten.

Josh we need to make it happen! Weve been playing cat and mouse too long! HAHAHA!

Just a single pair of WS Rev10's that Im WAY underpowering them (1/2 of what theyre rated for)so I shouldnt be too bad. I dont hang out at a Party cove and I just wanted to hear something while surfing. Ive got major hearing loss in my upper ranges so I know all too well LOL. I saw the value of the mic in texas when my buddy was yelling at the guy on the ramp for wasting time trying to get his boat loaded for 20 minutes as 6 others sat waiting. He got the clue LOL

Hoping to dewinterize Friday afternoon and ready for action the following week

I just made the suggestion to start a new thread Ryan was the one that got motivated and did the job.

Josh, I'm still around just got my trailer axles fixed and powder coated. Decided to change the color from yellow to gloss black. I've had issues with the axles since the day I bought it but they should be all fixed now. Boat is dewinterized and purring like kitten. The west side of the lake is nice, I wake up and stare at the glassy water every day on my way to work. BTW thanks for giving me a look at boater outlet the other day like you were lost when i said whats up.

Mike ~ I'm such a dick and was crazy in a hurry... So where do you launch out of? We have been doing a lot of Provo Harbor since I have a park pass and like the ramps so much more. I got to get you behind my MB and see what you think about the wake. We might be out tomorrow (Provo) if everything works out. It will be my bro's MB with a big red X on the side. Any chance you have the hook up to use the Saratoga launch or can get a pass? I have seen pics of it and would love to launch out of there instead and it's much closer.

During the week days and most week ends "in the morning" the Saratoga Springs ramp is is always empty. Noon going into the afternoons are a different story. I have a sticker on my boat for the private ramp but since I don't live in the HOA I have to borrow a friend's truck that does live in the HOA to use the private ramp. Just a warning the parking Nazzis will ticket you at the saratoga springs dock if you don't either pay or have a saratoga springs pass. "The sate pass doesn't apply to the saratoga springs ramp" I haven't picked up my pass yet but plan on doing it this week. The HOA will tow you if you don't have a sticker on your trailer and on your truck. I watched it happen to a few people and the guys doing the towing are huge dicks about it. Congrats on the MB looks nice.

That's sounds like the West side of the lake, LOL. I guess I might just stick with the Provo side and deal with the 20 min more. Thanks for the info Mike!

If you haven't done it go online and take the Mussel test so you don't have to deal with them damn papers every time you're at the lake. Seems like the DNR don't stare at your truck as long as the others when they see the Mussel print out in your window. Sucks... I does not work in Powell. NPS don't give a shizz what you know and don't. Happy boating everybody, we found this at Deercreek today!

Recently stationed at Hill AFB after being in Japan for a couple of years, the Middle East for a year and NorCal prior to that. Would love to get back on the lake with any local Northern Utah folks. I can drive, tow (2004 Duramax) and pay for gas...add me to "the list" if there is one please. - Steve

Welcome to the thread Steve. I live up in Layton and take my boat to Willard to ride. PM me your cell # and maybe we can hook up before I go on my 2 week trip to Japan at the end of the month. Otherwise, we can connect after I get back mid June.

I'm always looking for 3rds to ride the Jordanelle with my wife and I. I'm more into surfing than wakeboarding these days but just need people to get out on the water with us. I normally ride evenings and Sundays. I'm down for week day morning sessions but it's been impossible the past few years to find people to go then.

I live in AZ but visit Salt Lake a couple times a year and I always wish I knew someone to ride with when I'm up there. If you PM me your number I'll give you a ring the next time I'm up. I'd be happy to return the favor if you or any of the other Northern Utah guys are visiting Phoenix.

We are moving to Park City soon, and I am glad to see Riders in the area. We are bringing our SAN 230 with us, and I was curious to see what lake(s) are the best for riding the summertime...... Also, what month does everyone get out to ride in the area? Thanks everyone!!!!

Hey Spencer & CCwakerider,
Welcome to the thread.

Spencer, just sent you a PM.

Stephen, there's a lot of lakes to choice from in the area but since you're in PC, you have several options. Jordanelle Res, Rockport Res, East Canyon, Deer Creek and Echo Res. All are UT State parks except Echo which is privately owned and you need to pay their fee's to use the lake.

You can get a State Park pass online for $75 at http://stateparks.utah.gov/parkspass otherwise you pay $9 a day for each entry. Best of luck on your move to UT!

Ryan

Thanks for the info! We saw Jordanelle on the map and did not know if there was a good presence and use of wake boats, and definitely did not know about the other lakes and the fees. Which lake is the earliest of the season that you can use? Are their any "clubs-or-events" on any of those lakes in the summertime that you can point me in a direction? Sorry for all the questions but we have boated in SE USA (Tenn & Florida) and we have been spoiled with a lengthy season and we just are very unfamiliar with the Utah area and the "season times". We love the winter in PC, and everyone keeps telling us that the summer is even better!!! Thanks again for your help!!

Stephen,
People have been riding in the valley lakes since late March-early spring. People have been starting to get out in the mountain lakes (PC area) for the past few weeks but the water is still pretty cold up there (high 40's-mid 50's depending on which lake). It's the desert out here so mornings are pretty chilly and it get's hot in the afternoons. I hope you have a heater on your boat and a drysuit because both of those will extend your riding season. Some people can ride normally into late November depending on the weather. Some have ridden into late Dec (like DFTR Josh & David Horton above, but they're frickin' nutz! LOL). The valley lakes are now in the 60's so very comfortable to ride just with a vest or neo-top. But since you're coming from the SE, that's going to be cold for you )

There's no clubs on any lakes but there's a good presence here in the area. The boys at www.wakeutah.com host several events each summer at different locations around the area. Check out their site for the list of this summer's events.

When are you making your move to PC?

We are hoping to be there by mid summer, but may not happen until the fall. Same old story of waiting for our house to sell, so we can move there. Got family in PC, so excited to get there. I really appreciate your local info, as family does not know much about the Wake Life

Hello all, I moved to the US about 10 months ago and after surviving a SLC winter (at home the coldest it gets is about 30F) I bought a VLX and was ready to ride. Unfortunately my anticipated regular crew have turned out to be quite a bit less than regular. If anyone is interested in coming out or is looking for a 2nd, 3rd, 4th..... l am definitely interested.

Hey Jay / Scott, if you are looking for a third for your Jordanelle sessions I live in PC and would be love to join you and will contribute $, and diving if needed. I have done the early morning sessions and that is the best time for that lake for sure. I sold my boat last summer so I am not getting out nearly as much as I would like, I had a 2007 Supra 21V. Ryan was familiar with my old boat. If interested PM me your number.

Hello everyone. I just had my first Utah wakeboard experience up at the Hyperlite Meltdown. I was there for the first 1/2 and it was a great time. I used to ride a bunch where I'm from (western NY), but haven't ridden much in the last few years. I'd like to get back into it and although I don't have a boat, I can contribute to gas etc. If anyone is looking for a 3rd, 4th or whatever, let me know. As far as operation experience, I grew up driving a late 90s tige inboard, but don't have much experience with driving a trailer.

Schedule wise, I am pretty much down whenever I'm not working (I work Tues - Wed (9-5), Fri - Sun (2-10))

Hey everybody I'm a poor college student and would like to jump in for a pull anytime since I'm just sitting around not doing much. Got loot and a V8 to pull. I live just out the weber canyon by pineview and can meet up pretty much anywhere, So if you are looking for a third or just have a open seat I'm down to go. Also got access to a 2011 vlx anytime if we can split the expenses.

Hello everyone, I will be in the Saratoga Springs area for all of next week. My inlaws live right next to Utah Lake and I have always wished I could wakeboard when I am up there. Is there any chance that any of you would need a third on Utah lake or any other lake nearby some time next week? I will gladly pitch in for gas, clean up and/or driving. Willing to wake up as early as needed if someone wants to get a set in before heading to work...

Glen!!! Wow, haven't see you around for ages. How have you been? Yes, I still have my supra. How about you, still got your boat? If so, where have you been riding these days?

Spencer, I haven't been on UT lake once this year yet. But there are some people that ride there. Some are on this forum, so aren't. If no one offers up a ride in the next few days, I'll see if I can make some contacts for you. However, one of the guys that I know that lives in SS just broke his leg last week so not sure if he'll be taking his boat out, but maybe.

Glen ~ By your profile info I want to see that wake!!! 2200 and some lead is legit... Would like to try your wake and have you taste the MB F21 with 2200 that we use. Maybe a day with the Shima's and Matt is in order for a wake test fun day! Sunday's sounds like it would be the best for everybody and their family's. Well I guess I can say Sunday's are best for us.

Hey Glen, it was great to see you yesterday and would love a pull behind your Tige for sure. Will let you know when I'll be out next, maybe some time next week but I'll have to take my boat in for a tune up soon so I may be without a boat for a while during the servicing.

been thinking about your engine issue.. swing that baby by.. if its top end I can take care of it. but swing by and I will take a look at it.. just bottom end will require a lift most likely and work on the cams ext... but if its head gasket... we tear down the top end no problem.

let me know

Best difference is 4 racks and no speakers on the tower to spot mine. I can throw ya a text or something...

Ryan, if your swinging by that Maverick in Marriot, you might as well hit the small gas station directly across from Cal Ranch. They have non Ethanol blend. ive been using it. Its just two feul islands with the tanks on the other side of the fence. Open to public.

One more week till Im back!! Woot Woot!!

Hey Glen, thanks again for helping me resolve my engine issue and doing the repair work. I really appreciate it. Look forward to when we can ride again!

Matt, thanks for the tip, will definitely keep that in mind the next time I need to fill up. Do you have any idea what they run for cost?

we just got back from our annual Lake mead trip. Every year on the way home that lake you can see from I-15 nearMona? always stands out to me. Does anyone know if you can boat on it or has anyone been boating on it. I have never seen a boat on it so i didnt know if it was private property or restricted to motorless boats. Does anyone have any details on it.

was out with shima and DFTR last sunday. and they mentioned that they have been on it. guess it can be really good or really bad depending on the wind. but I agree every time I am on my way to or from ST. George I never see a boat on it.

Nice to meet you to Glenn.

Tings - Don't do it! Super low and will eat your prop...

Glen - Can we just get a forecast with no breeze? Need a new nose ballast bag and going to add a 750, should help make my wake a little more of a ramp then the 400 I use.

Glen ~ next time ask them why they're there... Tell them the fish are just as ugly throughout the entire lake, LOL! Then proceed to play boats and ho's while the tower speaker are pointed right at them. BOOM BITCH!

ahahah DFTR I did just that. (minus the speaker part) I asked them why they feel the need to fish right there and they have the whole lake too? Went on about educating them why we all ride there. seemed to really make a huge impression on them. LOL the only thing that I loved is some careless water skier showed up and was riding about 5ft off that dike... hahaah

fisherman.

Hey guys heading up to bear lake this weekend for a camping and boating trip (hopefully will get some riding in) any tips??
Old    D.F.T.R. Josh (downfortheride)      Join Date: Jun 2005       08-02-2012, 5:09 PM Reply   
Aussie ~ Bear lake is AWESOME! Not so much for riding but the water is something else. Never camped at the lake and when I was there it was a ZOO and no good water to be had. If you have never been you will have a experience with the water and being able to see the bottom very deep. Well last time I was there it was clear/clean water.

Never been there Scott but I heard to just watch our for the wind & storms that pop out of nowhere. Have a great weekend!

Cheers Josh and Ryan, yeah doesnt look like it has a lot of wind protection and the water does look a awesome blue.

Hopefully catch you guys next weekend for some more riding, less boating..........

scott... dying to hear how this pans out.. bear like is usually really good early.. wind most of the day and good late.. the lake setup is just so prime to be blowing most days.

Not sure if anyone in/around salt lake wants to check out the Red Rock cable park, but I am going to head down for a day trip this Friday. Planning on leaving Salt Lake by 8am, get there around noon. Ride on and off for the day and be back in the car driving by 8pm at the latest. Back in SLC by midnight at the latest. If you're interested, pm me on here. I'd only ask that you split gas. I have a vw golf, so mpgs are pretty good. I've got enough room for me and 2 other people.

Rich, thanks for posting! heading to Powell on Thur but would like to look at something like this in the future. Maybe staying the night in St. G and heading back in the AM.

I'm hoping to get down there a few more fridays this summer/fall. I'll keep posted.

Emailed the park the other day and they said they are going to try and keep things running into November, so there should be some good opportunities yet.
