im starting at grand valley this week and i just got my new watson FLY and i havnt ridden it yet.
i already talked to the dude who runs the waterski club and they run a prostar 105 without a pylon and i kinda wanna ride behind a real boat
if anyone rides out there i would love it if you pulled me for a pity set just so i can break in this board.
gas money and positive attitude are included!

It's a bit of a drive, but the guys at The Edge Kalamazoo do Wakeboard Wednesdays. It's like $10 and they ride until dark

Looks like you're going to be happy at school buddy. I can attest Alex being a great guy and even greater rider - so much style and amplitude. Have fun dude!

heck, roddyrod, if either of you want to come out get a hold of me any time. Season is getting short up here, so times a wastin... I'm on a lake a little east of GR, so it's not like it's right around the corner, but we have fun. Steve (guy who runs the GVSU ski team) works with me and he needs to come out as well. after labor day the lake really empties out so there are really no other boats on the lake. as long as the weather is good. otherwise karls place is pretty close to campus.

I go to State and unfortunately don't think there's much water or people that ride around here so if you guys ever got any extra room for another rider, I'm willing to drive a decent ways and would greatly appreciate a pull

Alex you are always welcome to ride with us behind a nose heavy 205V in the city at Reeds lake or in Barry county at some lakes I can't name, just PM me your cell some time

edit: Anyone in the area is always welcome of course, my cell is six one six seven zero six three five two one, and we ride several times a week. I have to blindfold you too and from the secret lakes of course

There is a good wakeboarding scene in Allendale and nearby. You can ride your bike to three great areas where many people wakeboard. On the bus, you can get to Reeds Lake, another place to ride.

Great! Just moved into the new house. Camryn is 15, Miss Allendale, and on the JV volleyball team. Chayce is 13, over 200 lbs and nearly 6' tall, and dominating the line on the football team. Carsyn is 9 and on a competitive dance team. All ski, board, and surf. Deb is slalom skiing occasionally. Saturday we put on a ski show with a local team.

Old     (boarditup)      Join Date: Jan 2004       08-28-2009, 5:55 AM Reply   
yes, too new for google maps. Aerial photos on the website, however.

My X-2 is up for sale and being demo'ed right now. I have a 214 for the next couple of days. I'll see if it sells.
