My wife and I will be relocating to WA in late August. We have a chance to buy a home with lake access on Meridian. The lake seems kind of small and only allows boarding from 9 - 6. Can you guys give me feedback on this lake as it plays a major role in our decision on the house? What other lakes besides Sammamish and Washington are good for boarding in the Southern part of the Seattle area?

matt, can't give you advice on meridian. i will say, however, that it's impressive to see that wakeboarding weighs so heavily on a major life decision. congrats and enjoy riding the nor-west.

meridian is reeeeeeeeeeeally small!

alder lake (i think that's what it's called) isn't too far from meridian. that lake is really nice.

Thanks double d. We've seen the house and are trying to decide if it is worth the extra $ to live on that lake. Also, my wife's new position is in Bellevue. Is the commute from Kent to Bellevue (approx. 25 miles) bad?

Your probably better off looking into living further north. Lake Meridian is a very small lake, and has specific ski restriction hours that aren't condusive to good water conditions. The Kent to Bellevue commute will be a serious pain in the a## as well. I would suggest you look in the Newcastle and Issaquah area for a house. You won't be able to get on lake property unless your loaded, but you'll be in close proximity to Lake Sammamish witch is one of the nicest lakes for boarding in the Seattle area.

If you guys decide to come out prior to your decision, give me a shout and the Seattle Wakeworlders will show you around.

Listen to Cliff (how's the cold?). Newcastle is a great place. Lakes are close and sometimes you find friends with docks and lifts (Laci).

If you have a lot of money you can consider Lake Tapps...but can be a little bit of a pain in ()#* commute. It used to be an awsome lake for boarding but can get a bit crowded now. Good luck...
