Iím sort of curious about boarding in the south. My mother lives in Venice, FL and keeps trying to get me to move down there. One thing is I own a construction Co and donít know If I could take that summer heat and the other is I love wakeboarding, it would be nice to be down there with the warmer weather I could board all year long. However up hear in Michigan, the worst thing we have to worry about biting us is a leach. Down there I think I would be a worse (lol) every thing in the water down there has sharp teeth and I like my rear the way it is I donít want a reduction. Has anyone ever been bite by anything down there?

a couple weeks ago a lady got attacked by a gator. she ended up dying. of course she was trimming shrubbery and not wakeboarding. gators are generally afraid of boats, unless you feed them.

I thought Texas had croc's or gators and snakes

Thatís one nice thing here in Michigan you can let your kids walk in the woods or play in the water and the only thing you have to worry about is other humans.............(thatís sort of sad, that you have to worry about people)

i've never seen a croc or gator in texas either...a couple snakes at rivers and stuff sometimes...infact there was one at a tournament a couple weeks ago...they're scared though (i think/hope)

No way man, I hate gators!!! You can't tell me that a 10 or 12 foot gator won't take a bite out of a 100-200 lb human. I saw a pic of one carrying a 160 lb deer the other day. I'm pretty sure that deer is alot stronger and faster than me. I'll wakeboard with snakes but f some gators. Oh wait, I'm wakeboarding with gators next weekend...anything to ride!!!

It can't be that big of a deal, since there are so many of the pros that are from FL
