Dude, someone open a pro shop in ohio, or at least northeastern ohio.we don't have anywhere to go get boards and stuff except the marina's and the dealers(which only about one dealer has some of the stuff). I would start one, but I am only 14. So someone who wants to start a shop, move to northeastern Ohio and open one.

There are a couple here in SW Ohio. I always go to No Wake Marine, the local Malibu dealer because thats where the famliy got the boat and they have great customer service. Anyway they recently bought Mid-Ohio Watersports so maybe that is a sign they are trying to expand the wakeboarding scene some. I wouldnt rule out some new stuff opening up in the next couple of years.

A new wake/snow shop opened up North of Cincy also (West Chester area). It's called G-Rides. ( ) I haven't made it up there, but I guess they are associated with the Supra/Moomba dealer there.

Paul...G Rides is also down at Norris, I think out of Springs. They have an "association" with Lokota Watersports I think.

I live in the akron/canton area and my buddy works at Kames Sports in North Canton. They carry some newer stuff not much but he can order anything. I would love to see the wakeboarding scene get bigger around here.

well some of you more northeastern riders might know this place better if at all, but do any of you ride on Pleasant Hill Lake. Because that is where i ride.

G-rides has a pro shop in cinci and Norris lake @ springs dock. Bought my kids board there, good selection and they will match any internet price.

Not sure the exact dates yet. I plan on staying the hole weekend and a camp site so I will let you know when I am going. What is the best time to go and how many campgrounds are there??

Allie, Know Wake in Columbus is right off of O’Shaughnessy Reservoir, the old Mid Ohio shop. Give Kevin a call at (614) 889-2666.
Old     (rkitz44)      Join Date: Sep 2005       03-28-2007, 10:15 AM Reply   
Know Wake on Glick road right across the street from the Bogey Inn for those in Columbus area. Hyperlite & Ronix Malibu dealer. Kevin, Danny, and Paul will take care of you. Ed put the number on the above post.

If they are keeping the same name as the Cincinnati store it is 'No Wake' Marine...not 'Know Wake'. Might make it difficult to look up the phone #!

They don't have the Columbus contact info on their site (

In Columbus it's Know Wake, makes more sense for wakeboarding.
Old     (rkitz44)      Join Date: Sep 2005       03-28-2007, 10:46 AM Reply   
It is Know Wake in Columbus, says it right on the sign, same people they just varied the name for C-bus. The number is 614-889-2666. It is probabbly still listed as Mid-Ohio watersports in older Columbus phone books.

Ok guys here is the question now. When are we meeting up to ride LOL. I know once the weather gets warmer. I live in Indy , but on the weekends I will be in Columbus area. I almost live there. I go to a lot of the live local shows out that way. I will post the NWL competions for anyone if they want them.

I'm on Griggs Reservoir all the time, hit me up. I think I rode with Rick once in Matt's boat last year.

The Scioto Wakefest will be on July 7-8. I’m due to issue the event press release this week. You can see what we’re planning at the Scioto Boat Club web page:

I'm in contact with Chris Walker with the NWL pretty often. The NWL schedule is posted on Bryon Greene's Web Site Here:

I ride with Chris here in Indy for NWL, I know I was saying that this past weekend was boat weather. I will be in Columbus on Sat. What time I don’t know yet, since I will be going out to CBR’s for a show out there with the Blitz. Maybe if the weather is nice we can ride. I will be more than happy to chip in gas money.

My boat is in the shop for cover repair and my dry suit still hasn't made it to me. I also just got an Fresh Air Exhaust system for the Mighty Centurion that I need to bolt on. I'm hoping to be on the water next week, sooner if the pieces fall together.

Chris, I don't know about you're Google advice here's the top link that Google returned.

I'd be happy to give Allie a pull and giver a few wakesurf lessons, I need to get my gear ready for the season first.

Its official now Im blushing. I cant wait to get back on the water after learning so much at the boarding school. Plus Im riding a bigger board a 144. Chris I cant wait for the season to start up. I will be trying to ride for Indy, Ky, and Oh this summer.
Old     (bigshow)      Join Date: Feb 2005       03-29-2007, 10:03 AM Reply   
A 144, that a big board!

Allie needs to break free on the 20th to 22nd and head down to the Lake Norris Ice Breaker. So far it looks like we'll have three boats towing, an X2, a 247 or LSV, and my Mighty Centurion. should have plenty of wake surf boards to try too.

OK, Chris can come along too.
Old     (rkitz44)      Join Date: Sep 2005       03-29-2007, 12:11 PM Reply   
144? That's a fat guy board. That's why I have a 144 and a 145. We'll be on Griggs April 20th on Larry's LSV.

Heads up, April 7th is the Governors cup rowing contest on Griggs, That would be a good day to go to O’Shaughnessy.
Old     (alliecat0223)      Join Date: Oct 2006       03-29-2007, 6:32 PM Reply   
Shaun Maury got me riding the big board. I was riding the 144 roam board and it was so easy to get up and start to do stuff on. So we tried the 144 motive, I loved it. I was used to the shape since I was already riding the 134 divine. So its not much change just bigger board, no fins and new bindings. If you are a girl the rise bindings are awesome.
If the dates are in April, I know I cant come out till the 21. Since the 20 is family dinner/ sisters 21st b-day. Give me directions and I will come out there. An if there is a good place to crash at. I don’t have Monday class till 11am that day. So no hurry to get back. An I will let some of my buds that ride in Columbus know of the event
