Has anybody been riding at El Capitan since it opened? If so, how are the conditions?

I was going to ask the same thing. I plan on getting out there soon. Need to call and find out hours, boat limits, etc.

The lake is open Thursday thru Sunday for water contact and fishing on the SAME days and at the SAME time, the lake opens at sunrise and closes at sunset.

40 boats maximum on the water contact area, the area is basically a big oval like Lake Elsinore with rocky sides so you will get the washing machine effect fast.

They also allow jet ski's to tow a wakeboarder or skier and they are included in the 40 boat count.

The only boats allowed in the water contact area are those that have purchased a permit.

If the lake doesn't have many boats on it there is one side that is pretty wind protected and would allow for decent riding conditions providing there aren't more than a handful of boats.

There is a jet ski only area and it is marked by a buoy line.

The narrows are a great place to go and hang out and relax.........calm waters and it goes way back, the downside is no wakeboarding or skiing in that area.

HUGE downside is it is a long tow on a fairly skinny road with a lot of overhanging brush, the lake hasn't been open for water contact since 1997 so the trees and brush have taken over the road making for a sketchy long tow in and out.

I drove by on opening day the weekend that San V opened up and there wasn't ONE boat on the water wakeboarding...........GO FIGURE!!!

Fees are the same as San V $5.00 a person and $5.00 to launch.

Hope this helps
