Shannon, Maybe I am getting old or because I have a daughter, but be careful sending an open post with your phone number and offering to go out on a stranger's boat. I have ridden with strangers many times and 99% of the time I have met some super cool people. But I have had a few weird ones. I think most anyone on this site would be cool, but be careful. You don't want to end up miles from a dock and things get funky. It would be best even if it was a friend of a friend. You don't want to end up in the Boat Bun Thread...

Find a local wake club and hit a mixer or two on land before hopping in a boat.

I've ended up in a few sketchy situations on boats and just want to save you the trouble. Thanks for understanding.

Definitely be careful. There are a lot of strange people out there. We have found many new friends thru this find a third. Unfortunately we are taking family out tomorrow. Add me as a friend and hit me up in the future I will get you guys out soon. We have a very mellow group of people we ride with. I am based out of Orwood. I have a 2013 MB 23wb
Good Luck and stay safe

Is it just me or is really that sad that we have to tell 2 females to be safe to ask for a pull on a wakeboarding site? Can we just wipe out the creepers one by one? Seriously if you if you have ever done harm or thought about it to an innocent girl or guy give me a call and i will gladly give you what you deserve 8308322307

Shot you a PM, might be able to get you out for some sets with the folks we're taking out tomorrow. Either way, always looking for cool people to ride and we go year round. OH...and Don up above...he and his family are the best in the world to ride with so get out on that MB if you have a chance!

Thanks for the kind words Matt Steele. I hope we see you out there tomorrow. Can't wait to spend Father's Day weekend with you and your Awesome family. It will be a fun filled adventure all weekend. Shannon if you can make it definitely hook up with Matt and his family they ride with us all the time. They are great people and you will have nothing to worry about. Everybody have a great weekend. We our leaving Orwood at 8 today and 8:30 tomorrow. If you see us say Hi.
