Sort of on topic - anyone know of a good fiberglass shop in the Charlotte area? Need to get a nice crack/hole repaired soon!

A friend of mine had her X15 repaired through Charlotte Ski Boats. They probably hire it out, but you may want to call them and ask them. The repair was done great on her boat, it's a black hull and you could NEVER tell it was damaged.

Wake08 knows more about it than I do lol... Not much of a story though, sort of a freak thing while pulling onto the trailer and the boat got damaged.

The dealership had the guide poles on the trailer too narrow so when it was coming in to trailer one time it bounced too hard off of one (they are springy, it's an odd setup) into the other and the padding was worn through on the pole as well so it scratched the boat as it ran along the rail. New padding and bringing the poles out since made sure that didn't happen again.

The guy did great work though as Tom said and the turnaround was pretty quick. The longest delay was the setting/drying which actually speaks well of him in my opinion that he didn't rush the work in order to ensure it was still good quality.

On that note, she went through the Charlotte Mastercraft dealer. It's their go-to guy as far as I know; I'm pretty sure if you contact them they can get you all of the information you need / set you up to get it fixed.

March is normally a good time of year, maybe an early camping trip again in Apr/May on Falls depending on how the weather shapes up.

Anyone riding Wylie and want to meet anytime let me know. Got a fresh keg at the house :-)

I'd be very happy to help you dial that boat in, set some goals, and build a plan to achieve those goals! Give me a shout whenever its getting warm enough for you.

That goes for everyone! Let's do some serious progressing this year! My contact info is at www.afwake.com Hit me up!

Just finalized my lease, moving to Cornelius from Ohio at the end of April. '12 moomba lsv. Hopefully someone can help with storage recommendations. Dry storage seems like the most logical in terms of location and ease of use due to me renting and not buying yet. Anyone have any experience with Kings point or holiday Marina. Definitely looking for a crew this summer!

I kept my boat at holiday for a few years and have no complaints. I cant speak for Kings point personally but they were more expensive when i was looking and I had friends that complained about waiting awhile for their boats on busy days. I don't think they let you call ahead, while Holiday does and I never had an issue even on busy weekends. I tipped the kids working there often and they took great care of me and my boat! good luck and enjoy LKN!

shout out to pro marine in durham for the great deal they gave me. Their center piece for the raliegh show was simply stunning and an awesome piece of machinery. That lsv looked so sick and trust me when i say the pics dont do it justice. And yes that is purple metal flake done custom by malibu for them and yes another brand owner may recognize it as their brands color. just awesome to see someone do something so unique and different and step up to the plate with a loud and trendy design. Thomas and Jimmy really took care of me on my boat purchase and if their service turns out to be as good as my purchase then they will always have a customer in me. check out the link to the raleigh boat show and the pimped out lsv.

Tell him to message me if he's on the forums. We are doing a Wake the World event on Tillery this summer.

I keep my boat and ride on LKG and occasionally ride on the creeks, rivers, sounds and bays of NE North Carolina and SE Virginia with friends. Would like to find some more people to ride with. Would also like to find someone with a winch thats interested in year round riding.

A few of us on Norman have been riding all winter in wetsuits. You all have no excuse.

Hopefully soon our family will be getting our boat in a position to be launched frequently as well.

I live in Fuquay Varina and have a small place in Clarksville VA. I usually keep my boat at Kerr lake but when I'm home, it's usually Harris. My office is near Falls and I used to live over there. I'd love to link up with some other folks this year and spend some time riding, then grouping up to drink a couple. I'm VERY novice but love to wakeboard and surf. I've got an 06 Wakesetter XTI.

Hey folks,

I ride a lot on Mountain Island, Tillery and sometimes Lake Wylie. I have an 06 Malibu V-ride and have been finding it harder to find folks
to ride with the last couple of seasons. Wouldn't mind meeting up with some like minded folks once in a while. I am 48 and not the most skilled
boarder in the world but like going out and having fun. Trying to fight off old age, lol. Just took up snowboarding a couple years ago....
Not sure why all the stuff I like to do costs so much and also threatens to kill me most of the time?

The beer makes us better though, both in our own minds as well as the people spectating.

Hey Tim, hit me up some time. I ride the south end of Wylie a lot but work near Mountain Island. I ride as much as I can and normally have 1-2 peeps down to ride. I picked up a 95 SS Nauti last year. As you mentioned it has got harder to find people to ride well wakeboard, seems like everyone is surfing on my end of the lake.

Thanks Raymond....sounds good. I will get up with you as it gets a little warmer. I sometimes have a day off during the week which is a great time to go but harder to find folks to join me. I am good to go to Wylie...it's actually the closest lake to where my boat lives. I am not as familiar with Wylie as far as the best places to ride. I like the north end of Mt Island probably the best of all...water is usually always good.
My friend who lives up near Norman has a 95 or 96 SS....nice boat. I am going to shoot you a text so you will have my number.

For the non-facebookers, please come join us at Falls Lake for fun day to hang out and party.



OK Folks, let's kick this summer off with a blast! Since so many people responded that they are riding in the Raleigh area, let's all meetup at Falls Lake like we did last year. We had something like 20 boats last year. I think we can EASILY double that number this year. So Let's Do It!

We'll meet up in the Cove just upstream from the Sharp S-Turns. Don't worry, I'll put a Google Maps point up. We'll plan to start tying up/hanging out at noon.

ProMarine Wake will be representing and bringing some goodies/giveaways.

Lastly, what meetup of wakeboarders would be complete without some Double Ups? Not this one, that's for sure. We'll pull some double ups and goof around. Whoever lands the coolest trick (or any trick at all maybe) will get a cool prize courtesy of Pro Marine Wake. This isn't a contest per-say, but we'll throw down, have some fun and someone will walk away with something cool and a whole bunch of street cred.

Don't be shy, I expect a high level of attendance!
