John....I live upstate, but work all over SC. I normally ride on Wateree, about 45 mins north of Columbia, and/or Wylie....just outside of Rock Hill, SC and Charlotte, NC. Both lakes are good, but Wylie is very busy. They are both river lakes. I do hear Lake Murray has some nice riding, and a lot of people on wake boats. I have a cousin on Lake Marion...big water so, pretty much windy all the time. Don't know much about Lake Moultrie other than it's a great fishing lake, but it's the closest to Charleston. I was hoping to get a few more weeks of riding in...just bought a new wetsuit, but it looks like cold temps are set now!
