I'm not a very happy camper right now. My Belmont has seen more of my room than it has the water . I get out once a week or less due to Sh*tty weather! The most days I have ridden consecutively this year were four and that only happened once. So what I wanna know is does your geographical location affect how often you ride? (I'm look'n for an excuse to move to Fl, will i REALLY have that much more riding time?). So my question to you all is how often do you ride, where are you from, and what has the biggest impact on how often you get to ride (family, work, weather.. etc.)?

Bess sorry to hear that. We are in the LA area, and since we bought our boat, 4 months ago, we've put 140hrs on her. Thats A few hrs. in the mornings over the weekends, and a few hrs. in the evenings during the week. Also a couple of trips. Work and family have been extremly supportive, but they are the only reason Im not out more. (the kids wont wake up at 5am every Sat.& Sun. of the summer!haha)

I am out as much as possible. It can from once a week to almost every day. The only things that stops me, is the weather (it can be really sh*tty in Denmark) and not having someone sailing my boat. Luckely my girlfriend is really supportive and she sails it sometimes.

Now the cold seasson starts, so the last two weeks I have only been out three times .

So a good advice! Don't move to Denmark if you are looking for more riding time

And defintely not Norway, ride once a week if I am lucky. Lacking a boat also affects how much I ride since I am dependant on others. Get to snowboard in the winter though.

Wakeboarding for the last time this season on Saturday. Getting cold.....

I ride in upstate NY from April to Oct. First two months and the last month in a dry suit. I ride three times a week at a minimum; knees permitting. Just took up kiteboarding which might cut into the wboarding time.

UK, Pine Lake 2-3 times a week equating to 4-6 10 minute slots (usually get just over that but you cram some serious wakeboarding into those precious minutes. I do a 90 mile round trip to where I do it....... well worth the trip and the guys at Pine Lake are seriously supportive dudes! Pine Lake rocks..... Wake Surfing is on the up!

We ride 3-6 times a week in MS from March to Oct. Gas and Injuries are what keeps us off the water. We made it 10 days in a row 1 time.

Im from Western Mass, i try to go out 1 time a week, i usually get up early and hit the morning glass before work or after work, but it also depends on when im working. It also doesnt help when i dont know any other people that ride where i live. Also not to many people my age have there own boat, so i try to get my dad to take me out once a week. Im sure it would be more times if there were others that rode and had a boat to use. o well its better than nothing at all.

South Central Texas- (Canyon Lake) At least 40 hours per week during the summer when school's out (high School) Then during school, 20 hrs per week. All year long with the exception of late December to First of Feb. then my son will ride with a "chill skin" top on and go out maybe 8 hours a week. It's always ridin' weather here.

I ride on Conneaut Lake in PA. The weather this summer has been terrible, so I have only boarded about 10 times. Our gas bill for the month of July was only $22.00!!! That is completely unheard of!

Sacramento, California, I ride as often as I can find a pull....a few days a week, (2-3) on the Delta or sac river.....the only thing that stops me is if I can't find a pull!

Leo, do you ride on at whitecap?? I saw the cable when I went to compete at Nationals this year.

once a week, sometimes every other week. If no one else is as into wakeboarding as I am, its my loss due to lack of boat; it really sucks

Livingston, Montana. With nine months of winter, this is not a wakeboarder's paradise. I only get out four, or five times a year, (it would be more if I didn't have such a demanding job), But I make the most of every trip, and ride til I can't stand up the next day!. Most of the die hards put on a dry suit starting sometime in late September and go til it freezes up.

Brisbane, Australia I try to get out at least twice a week all year round, The coldest it gets here is a long sleve top, for about a month.
